Blunty Reviews Each Drink at Mana Bar
For the past few years, Australia’s Mana Bar has been a shining example of geek culture mashed-up with bar life. Blunty, from the Blunty3000 YouTube channel, checked out the Mana Bar location in Brisbane and reviewed each cocktail offered.
Miles Prower (Sonic the Hedgehog cocktail)
Another of Mana Bar’s themed recipes, the Miles “Tails” Prower cocktail is a modified orange margarita. The website describes the drink as a “freshly served margarita with Cazadores Blanco Tequila, freshly squeezed lemon juice, sugar syrup, and Mandarine Napoleon Orange Liqueur all blended together to get your tail spinning!”
Angel Island (Sonic the Hedgehog cocktail)
Even Knuckles has to take some vacation time from guarding the Master Emerald. Mana Bar describes this Sonic cocktail as “Passionfruit Pulp blended with Bombay Sapphire Gin shaken with fresh lemon and gomme syrup, served long then lengthened with a giant splash of chilled soda water.”
Breath of Fire
Award winning cocktail creator Shay Leighton, of Brisbane’s Mana Bar designed this drink after the classic Super Nintendo RPGs. Ginger beer, 42 Below Vodka, ginger root, tabasco sauce, and a bit of lime make this cocktail sound like a tasty treat for adventurers old and young.
Mana Potion (Various Video Games Cocktail)
This cocktail is served at Australia’s Mana Bar. It is described as “an exhilarating blend of 42 Below Vodka, apple pressé and the bluest of Blue Curacao’s, all shaken with fresh lime and charged with sparkling white wine served straight up.” Quite the concoction to give you the boost of magic power when you need it.
