Mmmm, alcoholic haze …
Alan WakeThe game Alan Wake is about the author, Alan Wake, who may or may not being going crazy while trying to solve his writer’s block. The game is in a world of shadows and darkness and so our drink was envisioned to bring out that shadowy element. Also, Alan Wake is addicted to coffee so that’s an important part of it. I present: the Alan Wake
in an Old Fashioned glass
2 shots espresso vodka (Smirnof makes one)
1 shot Kahlua, poured in slowly
a float of Irish Cream drizzled slowly into the cup
Doesn’t it just look spooky!
In Mass Effect, your character has options as to how they want to react to things. They can be a tough, bad guy which makes them a renegade or they can be helpful and working for the greater good (the greater good), making them a paragon. This drink is based on that dichotomy. The red cinnamon renegade bites against the smooth blue paragon.
In a tall, skinny glass. We used a champagne flute, but something similar to a Collins glass might work
1 shot Goldschlager mixed with just about a tablespoon of grenadine
1 shot vodka, poured slowly
1 shot Blue Curacao, poured very, very slowly to float on top
Which side are you on?
So, in terms of mixology, we don’t always win. In this case, we wanted something that represented the aftermath of the nuclear fallout, and preferably that glowed under a black light. The combination neither glowed well nor was drinkable. I guess we’ll have to improve this idea in the future.
1 shot vodka
1 shot Blue Curacao
4 oz Mountain Dew
1 shot Irish Cream, added slowly
This tasted as bad as it looks. Don’t try it. Any ideas for a tasty, glowing nuclear drink? Maybe we’ll work on it this weekend.
So, go out and enjoy these new drinks. Add them to your menus and order them in bars. Also, if you have a game that you think we could make a cool drink for, let us know!
