Absolut Pleasure (Rocky Horror Picture Show cocktail)
1.5 oz Cherry Brandy (Kirschwasser used)
1 oz Absolut Vodka
1/4 oz Irish Cream
1/4 oz simple syrup
A few drops of Absinthe
4 Maraschino Cherries
Directions: First, evenly coat your glass with Absinthe. Muddle two cherries in a shaker and add ice, along with the remaining ingredients. Shake vigorously, and strain directly into the middle of your Absinthe coated glass. Garnish with two cherries. As you sip, contemplate giving yourself over to absolute pleasure and dance the time warp.

Cave Johnson’s Flaming Lemonade (Portal 2 Cocktail)
10 oz. lemonade
2 oz. limoncello
1 splash Everclear (or other grain alcohol)
1 grain alcohol-soaked lemon wheel
Directions: Cut a lemon wheel and soak it in grain alcohol while you make the drink. Mix the lemonade and limoncello into a tall glass, then float a splash of grain alcohol on top of the drink. Place the lemon wheel on the rim of the glass and ignite the top. Admire your delicious weapon, then extinguish and drink. Tip: If you can’t get it to light, add more grain alcohol to the top (float, don’t stir in). The wider the mouth of the glass, the more that will be needed.

Breath of Fire
Award winning cocktail creator Shay Leighton, of Brisbane’s Mana Bar designed this drink after the classic Super Nintendo RPGs. Ginger beer, 42 Below Vodka, ginger root, tabasco sauce, and a bit of lime make this cocktail sound like a tasty treat for adventurers old and young.

Phoenix Down (Final Fantasy Cocktail)
1/2 shot Absinthe
1/2 shot Zwack (Jagermeister will work too)
2 tsp. Simple Syrup
1 Splash Grenadine
Fill rest of the glass with Club Soda
Directions: Mix the absinthe, syrup, and soda water in a smaller glass (a perigord absinthe glass is used in the picture) until the drink becomes opalescent. Add ice if you prefer the drink really cold. Before serving, add the Zwack and grenadine. Both will settle nicely, leaving a nice orange on the top and a deep crimson below.
Unfortunately, Phoenix Downs may not be 100% effective when raising the dead, as I’m sure some spiky-headed ex-SOLDIERs know.
