Ingredients: 1 habanero Pepper 1.5 oz Ginger Beer 3 oz Strawberry Orange Juice 1 oz Pineapple Juice
Peter Quill, the loveable badass, is the inspiration behind this drink. I wanted to make something that packed a hard punch, but was still kind of sweet and I feel the ingredients convey his character quite well. The spicy habanero plays nicely with the pineapple and the ginger, giving this mocktail a strangely satisfying aftertaste. Check out the video below to see how to make it. If you’d like to add a bit of alcohol, I suggest a shot of tequila!
While in LA for E3 I had the great opportunity to make some videos with some very talented people. Fellow Geek & Sundry VloggerCristina Viseu shot me making the Chocobo cocktail, created by Heidi from the Retro Video Gaming Blog. It’s perfect for a day at the Golden Saucer race tracks!
