The Domfather (Gears of War Cocktail)
1 shot black cherry rum
1 shot Captain Morgan’s rum
1 shot grenadine
Directions: Mix first three ingredients and pour over ice in a highball or pint glass. Fill the rest of the glass with half Sprite and half lemonade. Drink it down and KILL ALL LOCUST!
Story Behind the Drink: This drink was co-created by Carlos Ferro, the voice actor of Dom in the Gears of War games. While at E3 2011, Drunken Moogle reader Joe Fronczek met Ferro at a Gears of War 3 after party. They attempted to order a Crimson Omen, but the bar unfortunately didn’t have all the ingredients, so they made their own drink- the Domfather. Below is a picture of Ferro/Dom and Fronczek at the bar.
Since the time we posted posted this, Joe, 8 Bit Brandt, and Red Like the Color have started their own geek drink site, called EXPBarOnline. They recently created a post of their own for the Domfather drink, which can be viewed here.
The Crimson Omen (Gears of War Cocktail)
1 shot Black Cherry Vodka
1 shot Captain Morgan’s Tattoo (Spiced Rum)
1 shot Grenadine
Fill the rest with Cheerwine Soda
Directions: Mix the first three ingredients and pour. Fill the rest of the glass with Cheerwine and stir. Add a few ice cubes if you wish.
I love this drink. Cheerwine is a cherry soda that is slightly uncommon, but I believe most Walmarts and Krogers carry it now. The very sweet cherry flavor goes great with the black cherry vodka and the smooth spiced rum. Grenadine adds to the sugary cherry flavor and makes this drink very sweet. If you want something that tastes a bit harder, leave out the grenadine and the drink will have a bit more kick. The color comes out as a perfect crimson. If you’re looking for a sweet, cherry drink to sip on while sawing down some Locusts, the Crimson Omen is it.
