The Portal Two (Portal 2 cocktails)
Ingredients:Blue CuracaoVodkaLemonade CointreauRum Orangina Small tumblers
Directions: “This drink is, of course, designed to resemble the two coloured portals from the excellent sci-fi puzzle game. For the blue version, get a small tumbler and pour in 10ml of Blue Curacao, 10ml of vodka and top up with lemonade. For orange you’ll need another tumbler, this time filled with 10ml of Cointreau, 10ml of rum and Orangina. If you fancy, you can jazz the glasses up with coloured sugar rims. Simply pour some sugar into a sandwich bag with the relevant food colouring, shake them up, pour the resulting mix into a dish and dip your tumbler in. “You can mix the portals together if you like,” says James. “It’s a very orangey flavour, which we thought tied in with The Orange Box, the compilation in which the original Portal appeared.”

Cave Johnson’s Flaming Lemonade (Portal 2 Cocktail)
Ingredients:10 oz. lemonade2 oz. limoncello1 splash Everclear (or other grain alcohol)1 grain alcohol-soaked lemon wheel
Directions:  Cut a lemon wheel and soak it in grain alcohol while you make the drink.  Mix the lemonade and limoncello into a tall glass, then float a splash of grain alcohol on top of the drink.  Place the lemon wheel on the rim of the glass and ignite the top.  Admire your delicious weapon, then extinguish and drink.  Tip: If you can’t get it to light, add more grain alcohol to the top (float, don’t stir in).  The wider the mouth of the glass, the more that will be needed. "I’m gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!" -Cave Johnson

The Drink is a Lie (Portal cocktail)
Ingredients:Cheap Beer
Directions: This is more of a fun joke to pull on someone than an actual drink.  Start getting a Martini glass. Put some Fancy garnish on it. Get a cheap beer from the fridge. Pour it into the fancy-made glass while the customer sees it and serve. Tell the customer that of course there is beer in it, as the drink was a lie.
