mcleodb: The Brinstar (Metroid cocktail)
1 pt cachaca
1 pt absinthe
1 pt simple syrup
1 sprig of Mint
Directions: Muddle the lime, simple syrup, and mint together in a shaker. Add ice and the alcohol and shake well. Pour the mixture into a lowball glass.
A note from the creator:
Brinstar is a zone overgrown with vegetation. Having very recently been introduced to a lime-y cocktail known as a caipirinha, I decided to try combining it with another leafy drink - namely, a mojito. The resulting combination, plus a little extra, wound up being a tasty creation that I’m rather proud of.

Master Chief Mojito (Halo cocktail)
50ml Bacardi Rum - White (or 100ml Bacardi Mojito)
125ml Mountain Dew Energy
1/4 Lime (squeezed)
2 sprigs Mint
Directions: Crush some ice (around 4 cubes per drink) and add it to your glass. Squeeze your lime over the ice and place it in the glass. Take two sprigs of fresh mint (wash it if necessary), give it a bit of a twist to crack the leaves and let the flavour spread easily. Add to the glass. Add the Bacardi, then the Mountain Dew. Stir, serve with a straw, and get ready to save the universe again.
A note from the creator:
I’ve spent the last few weeks working on a cocktail to drink in the launch of Halo 4 on November 6th. I was keen to have Halo 4 branded Mountain Dew Energy as one of the key ingredients. I’ve tried all sorts of combos and, to be honest, they were mostly disgusting. Though an honourable mention must go to Jack Daniels & Mountain Dew Energy, the absolute best I’ve found is the Master Chief Mojito.
