Totoro (My Neighbor Totoro mocktail)

Ingredients:
6 Mint leaves
1 oz Lime juice
1 oz Grapefruit juice
.5 oz Simple syrup
~2-3 oz Non-alcoholic Ginger Beer

My Neighbor Totoro may have been the first anime I ever saw. I watched it in 3rd Grade, back when I didn’t even know what anime was! Since then I have become a huge fan of Hayao Miyazaki, with my favorite movie of his being Princess Mononoke. I wanted to pay tribute to the director by making a mocktail inspired by one of his more famous characters. What’s your favorite Miyazaki movie? Chat with me about it in the comments of the video below. Make sure to subscribe to the Geek & Sundry Vlogs channel to get updates on geeky cocktails and subjects daily!

"To-to-ro? You’re Totoro!… I bet you’re Totoro…"

Playing Video Game Drinking Games with Curse!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! The other day I got to play some video game drinking games with the Curse crew and Jess Brohard. It was super fun, lots of games were played, and lots of cheap beer consumed.

Thanks to Curse and Jess Brohard for having me out and look forward to the recipe for the Curse cocktail in the near future!
