agirlwithhairlikethis: Scott Pilgrim: The 7 Evil Exes Drinking Challenge
How to play: Put in your Scott Pilgrim DVD, Blu-Ray, or whatever you use to watch it. Each drink is meant to be consumed after an ex is defeated. You can either mix drinks before hand, or after you’re finished your current if you’re short on glasses. Overall, the containers needed would be:
- 4 Shot Glasses
- 2 Drinking Glasses
- 1 Double Shot Glass
You can get away with having one of each as well, just making it easier I guess. :P
So onto the drinks.
Matthew Patel - The Fireball
- Captain Morgan’s.
- Top with Bacardi 151
CAUTION! : This shot, CAN be lit on fire. If you decide to do so BE CAREFUL. Originally we had it in the recipe that they needed to be lit, but we had a BIG issue putting them out. For this reason, I heavily advise NOT TO IGNIGHT YOUR SHOT UNLESS YOU ARE 100% SURE OF WHAT YOU’RE DOING!
Lucas Lee - The Grind
- Shot of Jagermeister
- Cup of Red Bull (We used NOS, but traditionally these are done with Redbull)
When Lucas Lee gets on the rail, drop the shot glass into the redbull, and chug. If you don’t finish it by the time he’s KO’d, you need to start over.
Todd Ingram - Fair Trade Blend with Soy Milk
- 1 shot of Vodka
- 1 shot of Bailey’s
- 1 shot of Kahlua
- Mix in Silk Soy Milk. (Chocolate if you want it to look like Coffee)
Roxy Richter - The Sexy Phase
- 1/2 shot of Buttershots
- 1/2 shot of Bailey’s
Ken and Kyle Katayanagi - The Twin Dragons
- 1 shot Momokawa Diamond
- 1 shot Momokawa Pearl
Layer the 2 on top of one and other in a double shot glass.
