The ‘Blinding’ of Isaac Shot Set
James Dance from Loading fulfilled a request to make a shot set based on the Seven Deadly Sins from the hit indie game The Binding of Isaac. They look tasty as sin, but too much at once will leave you blind drunk!
From left to right:
The most brutal of the sins this bomb is Black Sambuca and Bacardi 151 and a dark rum soaked ‘fuse’, guaranteed to do damage
She just wants a “Curdle” from you (Tequila Rose and Lime juice)
Not going anywhere fast this set mint chocolate drink takes some effort to down
Pride normally comes before a fall and this shooter is no different Tequila and Lime juice
You’ll be feeling green with this Envy, NV absinthe (groan worthy punning but it had to be done) and Kahlua in a split mixer
He only acknowledges money, he drinks money, he is the master of coin (Goldschlager and Lemoncello)
Split your gut open with a fierce, sugary blast wave of Chambord, Baileys and cocoa

Godot’s Special Blend #12 (Phoenix Wright cocktail)
6 oz. Coffee (9-Bit Mega Coffee from Loading used)
1 oz. Cinnamon infused spiced rum
3/4 oz. Irish cream
1 splash Chambord
Directions: Infuse your spiced rum with cinnamon cloves. Make your coffee, preferably fairly strong. In an Irish coffee glass, mix all ingredients and stir.
Spoilers for Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations below.
Godot takes pride in his coffee blends being extremely hot, dark, and bitter. However, he has been known to serve coffee to others with cream and sugar, especially in times they needed comfort. I tried to create a blend that I thought Godot/Diego would mix up for Mia Fey. Though the coffee is strong, the combination of the Irish cream, cinnamon, and the hint of raspberry makes it nice and smooth. The blend is #12, as 2012 is the year Godot/Diego and Mia first met at the Grossberg Law Offices.
