If Video Games and Consoles were… Cocktails?
David Houghton of GamesRadar has provided an answer in his recent article. The hypothetical cocktails are more a commentary on the game or console portrayed than actual recipes.
For example, Houghton’s describes a Duke Nukem Forever cocktail as:

Every time you’re just about to have it handed to you, the barman comes up with a new idea, takes it away and starts all over again. This goes on all night until the bar eventually closes. If you decide that you do ultimately still want to drink it, you have to come back the next day, when a new barman will fish out the dregs his predecessor left out the night before and stick them in a new glass with a bright-coloured but broken umbrella.

More hypothetical game cocktails, including the Final Fant-iced-tea and the Elder(berry) Scrolls, can be read in the article on GamesRadar.

A note from the creators: “This has a nice apple flavor (but not too strong), and the lychee adds a nice touch of exotic.  Keep in mind we used a 5 liter boiling flask for this monster.  So start breaking open pots and bring your rupees to the witch’s hut… or hit up the liquor store.”
