Green, Red, and Yellow Herbs (Resident Evil shots)
1 part Midori
1 part Green Apple Pucker
1 part Grenadine
1 part 5 Hour Energy - Berry flavored
1 part Gold rum (Bacardi Gold used)
1 part Honey bourbon (American Honey used)
Directions: For each individual shot, simply mix ingredients in a test tube shot glass. To create herb combinations, mix the shots up in separate glasses, the layer them according to density. Red is the heaviest and will always go on the bottom, Green is the next heaviest, and Yellow is the lightest. For the best effect when layering, make sure all your ingredients are chilled beforehand. Tilt the test tubes and pour the shots in so that they slide down the side of the tube.
Notes: I’ve had the idea for these shots for almost as long as The Drunken Moogle has existed, but refused to do so until I got the proper glassware. I modeled the herbs after my favorite Resident Evil game, Resident Evil 4.
Green- The basic herb. It’s nice nice and soothing.
Red- The catalyst herb. Alone, it will do nothing for you (thus the lack of alcohol and addition of caffeine in this shot), but mix it with a green herb and you’ll get something new.
Yellow- The stat increase herb. This shot won’t increase your overall health, but it’s certainly the strongest herb out of the three shots. Mix it with Green or both Green and Red for a strength boost.

expbaronline: Chateau Romani (The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask cocktail)
1 oz Amaretto
1 oz Frangelico
1 oz Wild Turkey American Honey
Directions: Pour alcohol in a shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a small glass and fill with milk. Enjoy the unlimited magic!
A note from the drink’s creator:
This is a good sweet yet strong cocktail. It has a full robust taste and a well rounded flavor. Great for any occasion.
We first set out to create a Lon Lon Milk cocktail but quickly realized it had been done plenty before where as Chateau Romani didn’t have one. So we started working on that. In game the milk restores all magic and grants you unlimited magic for the 3 day period. While this milk isn’t made from specially bred cows we promise after a few of these you’ll feel like you have plenty of magic.

expbaronline: The Avengers Shot Challenge
Black Heart spiced rum
Wild Turkey American Honey
Captain Morgan: Tattoo
Absinthe (NV Absinthe Verte used)
Directions: For all shots, layer the ingredients in the order given (except for Thor, which should be stirred). If all the ingredients are chilled, it should be very easy to layer them.
A note from the creators and the ‘shot challenge’ explanation:
Happy Avengers Day one and all!! So the trick here is they get stronger the further you go down the list. We have the order very carefully placed and drinks carefully crafted to embody the heroes. We are using the movie universe avengers even though we are aware they were not the first avengers.
Doctor erskine was going to share blueberry schnapps with him, but he couldn’t have it. Also due to the advanced tissues on his organs he can’t get drunk, hence this shot is the weakest.
Tony stark has battled on and off with alcoholism so his tolerance for alcohol is high hence the high proof rum, yet he tries to not drink hence the grenadine to dilute the alcohol.
He is a god. He drinks after battle and can handle his alcohol, yet human alcohol seems to affect him more hence he is the middle.
Just a normal human with unbelievable accuracy with all fire arms, bow being his weapon of choice. (p.s. Unlike the trailers we here at EXPbaronline do support Hawkeye and think he is bad ass)
He’s the Hulk, and as he so eloquently has stated in the past, “HULK AM THE STRONGEST THERE IS!!!!!” hence he is last.
So there you have it the avengers shot challenge. Enjoy.
Spcial thanks to Alex Stephenson this week for his amazing art for the avengers shots. Check out his hilarious web comic Narcolepsy inc.
Congrats to EXPbaronline on creating this great looking shot series! If you’re still hungry for more Avengers drinks, don’t forget about Black Widow’s cocktail. Remember, always be responsible while drinking.
