Poison Breath - Yoshimitsu (Tekken cocktail)
10ml passion fruit syrup
Lemon juice (1/2 a lemon’s worth)
Directions: To make this potent and tasty poison, coat the rim of a cocktail glass with popping candy. Stir ingredients with ice to chill, pour and serve. Commit Harikiri and drink up.
Drink created by James Dance of Loading as part of a Capcom Europe endorsed series of SFxT cocktails. These drinks were served at a launch event in London this past week. Many more, from both Loading and the Drunken Moogle, to come!
I really like the straw sticking through the glass in the picture, as to mimic one of Yoshimitsu’s trademark moves.
Batman: Arkham Party (Batman: Arkham City shot set)
Blackcurrant coulis (you can buy this in bottles or jars if you don’t want to make your own)
Directions: “This shot set sees some of Gotham’s most dastardly villains taking on the Dark Knight. For The Riddler, pour 20ml of Midori down the inside of glass, then add 5ml of vodka over a spoon. For a Mr Freeze, crush some ice and pour it into your shot glass, followed by 10ml of Blue Curacao and 10ml of Sambuca. Your Joker is made from 15ml Blue Curacao, cranberry juice and rum with a topping of popping candy (“You’ll need to stir it up with a straw to get the colour,” says James). Then we have a Poison Ivy, grown from 15ml of rum, a fresh mint leaf (or a dash crème de menth if you prefer) and sugar syrup. Finally, create your Batman/Bruce Wayne shooter with 5ml of blackcurrant coulis and champagne. Now let the flavour battle commence!”
The caped crusader better have some paracetamol in that utility belt – this isn’t so much a cocktail as a super villain fist fight.
