New Year’s Gaming Drinks


We at The Escapist enjoy The Drink. Alex, our Commander-in-Chief, makes a mean martini, and a really mean Long Island Iced Tea (I’ll tell you that story when you’re older – and my memory finally comes back). As a gift to you on this New Year’s Eve Eve, here are a few gaming-themed drinks for you to enjoy, and hopefully share, with your (of age in your particular jurisdiction) friends.

Three drinks after the break!

Super Mario Sunshine
1 oz grenadine
2 oz tequila
2 oz grapefruit juice (yellow sun! Yellow sun!)

Shake the tequila and grapefruit juice over ice and pour into a lowball glass. Carefully pour the grenadine down the side of the glass so it settles in the bottom. Add a splash of Tobasco if you’re insane, or you just want to shoot fireballs.

Indigo Prophecy’s Schizophrenic Story Line
1 oz everclear
3 oz jagermeister
cranberry juice

Shake the everclear and jager in a mixer and pour over ice in a highball glass. Fill with cranberry juice. If this doesn’t cause you to wake up in a bathroom covered in blood, I’ve failed you as a long distance bar tender.

Whatever’s laying around

The ultimate college drink. Take whatever’s in the pantry and fill a highball glass. It’s kind of like a Long Island Iced Tea, only you can watch four lines disappear at a time! Please don’t take this one seriously.

Hope these work for you guys. Tell me how you like them, especially Indigo Prophecy. But now it’s your turn. What are your favorite gaming drinks, or drinks in particular?
