Gae Bolg (Final Fantasy XIV cocktail)
Ingredients:.75 oz Blue Curacao1.5 oz Bacardi Dragon Berry5 oz Limeaid1 Twizzler
Dragoons have always been one of my favorite classes in Final Fantasy games, and XIV is no exception. To coincide with Geek & Sundry’s own Nika Harper making a REAL Gae Bolg on Arcade Arms, I thought I might create a drink in honor of the legendary spear. This strawberry lime mix, with a hint of curacao, this cocktail is great for a hot summer day after hours of slaying dragons. Check out how to craft the drink in the video below and let me know your favorite Final Fantasy class in the comments!
