DigRat (Twitch Plays Pokemon cocktail)
.75 oz Bourbon
1.5 oz Creme de Cacoa
2.5 oz Root Beer
Twitch Plays Pokemon has become one of the neatest phenomena I’ve seen on the internet. The amount of fan art and content that has come out of it in the few weeks that it has existed is crazy awesome. I simply had to create my own tribute, in drink form, for my newest Geek & Sundry Vlog. Critical Hit Cocktails presents: The DigRat. Earthy ingredients were chosen and served in a cubed glass to represent the digging element of the great/traitorous pokemon and the units of movement in the game. Who was your favorite Pokemon in the generation one Twitch Plays Pokemon playthrough?
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.

A note from the creator:
Twenty one years ago
today yesterday we got Super Mario Land 2, one of the best games that ever came out for Game Boy! Mario got new power ups as he traversed the land in search of six gold coins, culminating in his first ever showdown with WARIO, Since we’ve had that twisted anti-Mario character present in our lives for 21 years now, it’s time we got that man a drink (not that he seems to need one):
On November 1, 1992 Mario got to power up with carrots for the first time, transform himself into Rabbit Mario, and glide his way to Wario’s Castle. But Wario got to make use of his own carrots to become Rabbit Wario. The two have been matching wits for over two decades now and Wario’s made a great addition to the Nintendo universe. With that said, pour one of these out, relax and let the Wario hypnosis sooth your mind.
