Big-Bang Blast (Mega Man cocktail)
2 shots Blackberry Brandy
Directions: Fill a low ball glass about 2/3 full of orange juice. Then, pour about two shots of the blackberry brandy very slowly over a spoon on top. If done right, it creates a nice swirling effect.
Side story to this drink: I recently found out about the band, The Protomen. They have two albums that make up a rock opera based on the story of Mega Man. However, it’s not just some nerdy joke; the story is one of the best narratives I’ve heard through music and the songs are deep. Give them a listen. This drink is named after Protoman’s special attack.
