LeChuck (Monkey Island cocktail)
1 1/2 oz Kraken Black Spiced Rum
1 oz Cointreau
1/2 oz Stirring’s Blood Orange Bitters
Directions: Mix all ingredients into a rocks glass and stir. Add ice and serve. Drink and go find your undead bride.
Note: Stirring’s Blood Orange Bitters are unlike most bitters in that they are more like a light non-alcoholic juice, so don’t be afraid that the recipe calls for more than a dash.

Scumm Bar’s Finest Grog (The Secret of Monkey Island Cocktail)
6 Light Wheat beers (I used Bud Light Wheat)
3 oz. dark rum (preferably Kraken Rum)
3 oz. white rum
1 oz. lime juice
Directions: Grog is meant to be served to a group of pirates, so get some friends for this one. Pour the six pack into a large enough pot or other container that can hold it. Add in the 6 oz. of rum and the lime juice. Stir all ingredients. Use a small serving cup to distribute ye grog.
Note: Grog was traditionally rum that was diluted with water or a weak beer, served hot or cold. It wasn’t the tastiest substance, so often ingredients such as sugar, cinnamon, or lime juice were added. While the grog that Guybrush encountered in The Secret of Monkey Island was a bit more deadly, this grog is sure to not melt through your mug. It will give you the kick a drink made for a pirate should, though.
"To be a pirate, ye must also be a foul-smelling, grog-swilling pig."
