“Nazis may not be great, but this “gloo-vine” stuff is delicious.” - B.J. Blazkowicz
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 orange
- 10 whole cloves
- 1 (750 ml) bottle red wine
- In a saucepan, combine the water, sugar and cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer.
- Cut the orange in half and squeeze the juice into the simmering water. Push the cloves into the outside of the orange peel and place peel in the simmering water. Continue simmering for 30 minutes until thick and syrupy.
- Pour in the wine and heat until steaming but not simmering. Remove the clove-studded orange halves.
- Serve hot in mugs or glasses.
(If complex recipes scare you, it’s okay! Just mix eggnog and bourbon to taste and skip to the last two steps in the directions.)
- 4 egg yolks
- 1/3 cup sugar, and a tablespoon
- 1 pint whole milk
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 3 ounces bourbon
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- Green food coloring
- Marshmallow cream
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the egg yolks until they lighten in color. Gradually add the 1/3 cup sugar and continue to beat until it is completely dissolved. Add the milk, cream, bourbon and nutmeg and stir to combine.
Place the egg whites in the bowl of a stand mixer and beat to soft peaks. With the mixer still running gradually add the 1 tablespoon of sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.
Mix marshmallow cream with green food coloring until cream is vibrant green. Use a spoon or gloved finger to smear the green marshmallow on the inside of your eggnog glass like spots. Make sure not to use too much marshmallow when applying or the eggnog will quickly turn green as well.
Pour the eggnog into the spotted glass to see the Yoshi’s egg effect.
Zero Suit Samus (Metroid Cocktail)
1 1/2 oz. Hpnotiq
1 oz. Blue Curacao
1/2 oz. freshly squeezed orange juice
A splash of Midori
A splash of Apple Pucker
3/4 cup ice
Directions: Squeeze the juice out of half an orange and use a scoop to remove the pulp, leaving you with just a clean rind. Measure the juice to 1/2 oz. and blend all ingredients together and strain into a glass. Place the orange over the glass and serve. Before drinking, remove the “armor” and enjoy.

A surprisingly good list for a website called Ask Men. Only one mention of Madden.
