Ink Whiskey Concealable Entertainment Flask
Cartridges were great, right? Quick load times, durability… having to blow into the bottom every two seconds to clean out dust… But honestly, what a great time for gaming! The iconic NES cartridge has been the subject of many art projects and is a pop culture staple in retro gaming. And soon, it’ll get ya drunk!
Ink Whiskey LLC’s Kickstarter for an NES cartridge inspired flask was recently fully funded, currently having over $32,000 pledged. The flask will be made to look like the old cartridges with a removable cap at the top. Currently there are five designs for the “games” depicted on each flask, which are parodies of classic NES games. Drunk Hunt, CastleVodka, Metal Beer, and Super Bar-Hop Bros are options for the normal grey carts and The Legend of Drink will be on a special shiny gold cart.
The Kickstarter has just over 24 hours left, so there’s still a chance to preorder! The minimum pledge to receive a flask, once they’re produced, is $15. If you’re looking to splurge on something a bit more custom, the highest pledge ($250) will give backers a custom label parodying the game of their choice.

Rainbow Road (Super Mario Kart cocktail)
4 oz. Orange juice
½ oz. Gin
⅓ oz. Grenadine
⅓ oz. Rum
3 oz. Vodka
2 splashes Blue Curacao
Directions: Mix orange juice and gin together and pour them into the glass. Then, stir the rum and grenadine together and pour it slowly down the side of the glass - it should settle at the bottom, turning the bottom red and the area immediately above it orange. Mix the vodka and blue Curacao together and then layer it on top of the orange juice. The top should remain blue, but some should settle down to create a green layer. Like Super Mario Kart's toughest course, this drink may be difficult to finish.
A note from the creator:
People! The first Mario Kartgame game out for Super Nintendo 21 YEARS AGO TODAY! Super Mario Kartwas the first time we got to fall into infinite space off the seizure-inducing Rainbow Road. So, we really had no choice but to make this powerful, colorful, easy-to-spill drink:
In addition to taking our inaugural drifts around Rainbow Road, on September 1, 1992 we triggered boos and lightning bolts, played as Koopa Troopa and Bowser, and tied balloons to our karts and shot each other with shells FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER. The original game is still a ton of fun, but it’s great to see how much those basic elements have evolved over the last 21 years.
Here, have a taste of the madness! (video below):
