thetadoctor: Sherlock Holmes and John Watson cocktails
1 oz. Top Shelf Vodka (We’re talking about Sherlock. Try Grey Goose or Belvedere)
1 1/2 oz Cranberry Juice
1/2 oz Blue Curacao
Directions: Use a chilled stemmed glass. This drink would look smooth in a Martini Glass. Pour the ingredients in the glass in order. When you add the Blue Curacao, you’ll notice the color smoke into purple. Ah, Science. Optional Cherry Garnish, but don’t over do it. The body is just transport.
The game, Mrs. Hudson, is on!
1/2 oz Light Rum
1/2 oz Tequila
1/2 oz Gin
1/2 oz Vodka
1/2 oz Triple Sec
Directions: The Glass doesn’t matter too much, you’re not trying to show off. Try a stein type shown here, or a Collins Glass. Shake the alcoholic ingredients with ice and strain into the glass. Fill with Orange Juice. You’re allowed to feel fancy, Float some Grand Marnier if you’d like. Add Orange Wheel. The idea is to let them think that you’re innocent, then you can unexpectedly kick them in the face.
Now people will definitely talk.

The ‘Blinding’ of Isaac Shot Set
James Dance from Loading fulfilled a request to make a shot set based on the Seven Deadly Sins from the hit indie game The Binding of Isaac. They look tasty as sin, but too much at once will leave you blind drunk!
From left to right:
The most brutal of the sins this bomb is Black Sambuca and Bacardi 151 and a dark rum soaked ‘fuse’, guaranteed to do damage
She just wants a “Curdle” from you (Tequila Rose and Lime juice)
Not going anywhere fast this set mint chocolate drink takes some effort to down
Pride normally comes before a fall and this shooter is no different Tequila and Lime juice
You’ll be feeling green with this Envy, NV absinthe (groan worthy punning but it had to be done) and Kahlua in a split mixer
He only acknowledges money, he drinks money, he is the master of coin (Goldschlager and Lemoncello)
Split your gut open with a fierce, sugary blast wave of Chambord, Baileys and cocoa
