Poison Arrow (The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion shot)
1 part Lime Cordial
1 dash Grenadine
1 part Bailey’s Irish Creme
Directions: Fill up a shot glass with lime cordial and add a dash of Grenadine to the top. Now very slowly pour Baileys into the center of the shot glass until the liqueur hits the bottom of the shot. Take a straw and slowly twirl it round so the Baileys twists around the tube. Retract the straw and serve.
Warning: I have not tried this drink, however, the Lime Cordial will curdle the Baileys (that is how you get the really cool visual effect). This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, just make sure you take down the shot quick and don’t hold it in your mouth. Overall, “Poison Arrow” seems to be a very appropriate name for this drink.

Plasmid (Bioshock cocktail)
30ml Smirnoff Vodka
20ml Blue Curacao
Small bit of Lemon Juice
Champagne (however much you want, at the end)
Directions: Fill a tall glass with ice and crush with a pestle, adding to the ice until it fills the class three-quarters full. Grab your cocktail shaker and pour in the vodka, Blue Curacao, Myrtille, and lemon juice. Now pour that into your glass until thats three-quarters full. Top off the rest of the glass with champagne and add fresh blueberries and blackberries.
Warning: Plasmids have addicting qualities and may or may not give you the ability to freeze humans. Results may vary.
This might be the tastiest looking drink I’ve ever posted. Props to OXM UK for making this.
20ml Lemon Juice
50ml Creme de Peche
15ml Creme d’apricot
Directions: Carve off a lemon skin in a spiral shape and wrap the skin around the inside of a glass, using ice cubes to prop up the skin to the inside of the glass. Take your cocktail shaker and mix in the Cognac and lemon juice and pour into the mixture. Now repeat with the Creme de Peche and Creme d’apricot, then pour the mixure slowly into the glass via the top of the lemon.
I thought I would keep with the Street Fighter 4 theme and post a drink named after Zangief’s move. This seems to be a bit too elegant for a drinking game, though. Sip on this, talk about classy things, like that time you totally parried all 15 hits of Chun-li’s super and came back with a shippuu-jin-rai-kyaku to win Evo ‘04.

Bum Rush (Final Fantasy Cocktail)
55ml Arita Tequila
22ml Triple Sec
20ml Lime Juice
A Few Drops of Chili Seeds
A Lemon Wedge
A Chili Pepper
Directions: Run a lemon wedge around the rim of a cocktail glass then cover with coarse salt. Crush a few ice cubes into a cocktail shaker then pour in 50ml Arita Tequila, 22ml Triple Sec, 20ml lime juice and drop in a couple of chilli seeds. Shake and pour into the glass and attach one chilli pepper onto the side.
The makers of this drink were particularly clever when they included the running of the lemon wedge along the rim of the glass. The Bum Rush is Sabin’s final Blitz move in Final Fantasy VI. The input for the move is a complete circle using the directional pad. So when you run the lemon wedge on the glass, its simulating you preforming the move. This makes me a happy geek.
Thanks to the guys at OXM UK for creating this drink in style.
