Drinking (And Renaming) Cocktails at PAX East with Holland Farkas and Mitch Hutts
Last month at PAX East I got to meet up with fellow Geek & Sundry vlogger Holland Farkas and have a few drinks! We went to the Omni Parker House bar, which featured a great selection of tasty cocktails. The drinks were tasty, but we thought the names could be a bit geekier for the weekend, so we selected two from the menu and renamed them according to our passions, video games and movies!
Vodka Cherry Pokeballs
I’ve seen rummy bears and vodka gummy worms, but what if you want something a bit more gamer themed? Imgur user BigEatsBen melted some bags of various colored gummy candy, mixed it with vodka, and formed each sphere into a total of 20 alcoholic Pokeballs. They look like an awesome snack for a themed party, or even just a fun treat to wrap up and give to fellow Pokemon trainers. Quite the rare candy.
Tropical Freeze (Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze cocktail)
.75 oz 99 Bananas
.75 oz Malibu Rum with Coconut
.75 oz RumChata
4 oz Pineapple Juice
Within the first few minutes of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze being announced, I received multiple messages saying that the title sounded like the name of a cocktail. With themes of Donkey Kong, ice, and tropical fruit, this drink practically made itself! Check out how to create this easy cocktail in the video below on the Geek & Sundry Vlogs channel.
Dark Souls Drinking Game: Drinking Souls - Prepare to Drink
PrepareToDrink.com has created a customizable drinking game for the frustratingly hard series, Dark Souls. The site asks you a series of questions such as, “Has anyone in your group played Dark Souls before?” and “Are any players prone to rage quitting.” After answering all of the questions, the website will create a custom set of rules for your group, which it deems fair. But it’s Dark Souls, so you already know it’s not going to be fair. Click, if you dare, and prepare to drink!
Please game and drink responsibly.
DigRat (Twitch Plays Pokemon cocktail)
.75 oz Bourbon
1.5 oz Creme de Cacoa
2.5 oz Root Beer
Twitch Plays Pokemon has become one of the neatest phenomena I’ve seen on the internet. The amount of fan art and content that has come out of it in the few weeks that it has existed is crazy awesome. I simply had to create my own tribute, in drink form, for my newest Geek & Sundry Vlog. Critical Hit Cocktails presents: The DigRat. Earthy ingredients were chosen and served in a cubed glass to represent the digging element of the great/traitorous pokemon and the units of movement in the game. Who was your favorite Pokemon in the generation one Twitch Plays Pokemon playthrough?
