The Drunken Moogle

Zer0 / The Assassin (Borderlands 2 cocktail)
Ingredients:1/2 oz Jagermeister1/2 oz Blavod 1/3 oz Firewater (or any other strong cinnamon schnapps)
Directions: Add the Jagermeister and Blavod to a chilled shot glass. Slowly add the Firewater to the drink while pouring it over a teaspoon/barspoon down the inside of the shot glass. The layer of Firewater will usually layer at the bottom of the shot but it may layer on top depending of the absolute density of the particular brand used.A note from the creator:

The main idea behind this shot is that the ratios of drink to the glass size are important. The main drink should be approximately 45% Jagermeister, 45% Blavod and 10% Firewater.

agirlwithhairlikethisScott Pilgrim: The 7 Evil Exes Drinking Challenge

How to play: Put in your Scott Pilgrim DVD, Blu-Ray, or whatever you use to watch it. Each drink is meant to be consumed after an ex is defeated. You can either mix drinks before hand, or after you’re finished your current if you’re short on glasses. Overall, the containers needed would be:

  • 4 Shot Glasses
  • 2 Drinking Glasses
  • 1 Double Shot Glass

You can get away with having one of each as well, just making it easier I guess. :P

So onto the drinks.

Matthew Patel - The Fireball

  • Captain Morgan’s.
  • Top with Bacardi 151

CAUTION! : This shot, CAN be lit on fire. If you decide to do so BE CAREFUL. Originally we had it in the recipe that they needed to be lit, but we had a BIG issue putting them out. For this reason, I heavily advise NOT TO IGNIGHT YOUR SHOT UNLESS YOU ARE 100% SURE OF WHAT YOU’RE DOING!

Lucas Lee - The Grind

  • Shot of Jagermeister
  • Cup of Red Bull (We used NOS, but traditionally these are done with Redbull)

When Lucas Lee gets on the rail, drop the shot glass into the redbull, and chug. If you don’t finish it by the time he’s KO’d, you need to start over.

Todd Ingram - Fair Trade Blend with Soy Milk

  • 1 shot of Vodka
  • 1 shot of Bailey’s
  • 1 shot of Kahlua
  • Mix in Silk Soy Milk. (Chocolate if you want it to look like Coffee)

Roxy Richter - The Sexy Phase

  • 1/2 shot of Buttershots
  • 1/2 shot of Bailey’s

Ken and Kyle Katayanagi - The Twin Dragons

  • 1 shot Momokawa Diamond
  • 1 shot Momokawa Pearl

Layer the 2 on top of one and other in a double shot glass.

Gideon Gordon Graves - GGG Bomb

  • 1/2 shot Grey Goose Vodka
  • 1/2 shot Goldschlager

The Frag Grenade (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare cocktail)
Ingredients: LimoncelloCrème de MenthJagermeisterBaileysEnergy drinkBlack vodka
Directions: "Not so much a cocktail as a military exercise, this mission features two shooters colliding in an energy drink combat zone. Start by making a Soap MacTavish – get a shot glass and pour in limoncello, then Crème de menth. Now concoct a "Jagernaut", which is Jagermeister, then Baileys in another shot glass. Now get a half-pint glass and fix a "Makarov" – pour in your energy drink of choice, plus a shot of Black vodka. Now, wedge your two shooters in the mouth of the half-pint glass. Your first step is to pull the pin on the Soap Mactavish, by carefully yanking the glass free and downing the shooter. This will of course, result in your Jagernaut depth charging into the Makarov – now drink the resulting combination. That’s right, it’s the ultimate shooter-‘em-up."
Earn maximum experience points by priming and consuming this explosive concoction.
