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.

1 part Vodka
1 part Midori
1 Maraschino cherry
Tingle Bottle variation: Add 1/2 of a cinnamon stick
Directions: Place a cherry at the bottom of a shot glass, then add all three parts. Say “Tingle Tingle koolimpah!!” before taking the shot. For the Tingle Bottle variation, add half of a cinnamon stick before adding the alcohol, then place a cherry over the top of the shot glass on a toothpick.

Vote for The Drunken Moogle in Geek & Sundry’s Vlog Search
Thank you so much to everyone who showed their support in the first round of the Geek & Sundry Vlog Search! My new video series Critical Hit Cocktails has been selected as one of the top 30 in the final round. From July 10th to the 19th, you can vote once a day. It would also really help if you commented on YouTube with your thoughts on the video and ideas for future drinks. Your feedback is needed!
If I’m selected as one of the ten chosen to be a vlogger on the Geek & Sundry Vlogs channel, it will be good for many reasons. I would receive guidance and feedback from the G&S staff, opportunities for collaborations with many talented individuals, and a stipend (meaning a real budget for videos!). The result would allow me to deliver the high quality video series that you all deserve. You’ve all waited patiently and asked for it for years, after all! Your feedback on the last video helped so much and I feel the series will only get better with time.
In this video, I make a drink based on the first song you learn in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Zelda’s Lullaby. It’s a sweet and tart drink, perfect for summertime! Try it out and let me know what you think.
Please check out the video in the link below and vote daily if you like it. Thank you all again for your support!
Also in the top 30 is Amanda McGinnis from Tumblr’s Console to Closet! Amanda puts together really creative outfits inspired by characters in video games. Although clothing and alcohol are pretty far apart, the idea of Console to Closet is pretty similar to The Drunken Moogle. You can vote for multiple people, so show her some love too!
