Articuno (Pokemon cocktail)
2 oz Hpnotiq
.75 oz Gin
.25 oz Lime Juice
Club soda to fill
This episode on my Geek & Sundry vlog, Critical Hit Cocktails, I decided to make a drink after one of my favorite ice Pokemon, Articuno! The Articuno cocktail is cool, flavorful, and smooth. While chilling the drink with Ice Beam is preferable, but shaking over ice and pouring over a big ol’ ice cube will work as well.

Capt Jack Harkness - Emergency Protocol 417 (Doctor Who cocktail)
2 parts Gin
2 parts Vodka
1/2 part Dry vermouth
1 Lemon twist
DIrections: Stir gin to chill and strain into a martini glass. With fresh ice, shake vodka and vermouth vigorously. Strain into same glass as gin. Take a lemon twist, rim the glass, and garnish. Sip and muse on the impossible.
A note from the creator:
At the end of the episode “The Doctor Dances” Captain Jack has his ships’ computer make him a drink. It appears to be a martini so I based this drink on a combination of a gin and a vodka martini. I feel this cocktail represents our suave captain in his purest essence. Jack Harkness is a classy man. He knows the value of quality and of simplicity, and everything he does is done with an air of elegance. A martini is exactly like that. It is simplicity, quality, and elegance in liquid form. This cocktail is all about the ingredients. I do not suggest making this with the cheapest spirits out there. I suggest mid-shelf quality. I used Absolut Vodka and Bombay Sapphire Gin (Gordon’s Gin is also good if you are on a budget). But don’t let this scare you away. It truly is a wonderful experience that you will not forget.

Bloody Tears (Castlevania cocktail)
1.25 oz Gin
1 splash Chambord
1 oz Lemon juice
1 oz Grenadine
Directions: Muddle the raspberries and add all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a coupe glass. The bits of raspberry seeds and fruit are the Bloody Tears. Ask your friends “what is a man?” and serve to the first person who answers correctly (answer: “a miserable pile of secrets”)
Happy Halloween! A vampire drink seemed appropriate for the occasion, so this episode Mitch will show you how to make Bloody Tears, a Castlevania inspired cocktail.
