A note from the creator:
At the end of the episode “The Doctor Dances” Captain Jack has his ships’ computer make him a drink. It appears to be a martini so I based this drink on a combination of a gin and a vodka martini. I feel this cocktail represents our suave captain in his purest essence. Jack Harkness is a classy man. He knows the value of quality and of simplicity, and everything he does is done with an air of elegance. A martini is exactly like that. It is simplicity, quality, and elegance in liquid form. This cocktail is all about the ingredients. I do not suggest making this with the cheapest spirits out there. I suggest mid-shelf quality. I used Absolut Vodka and Bombay Sapphire Gin (Gordon’s Gin is also good if you are on a budget). But don’t let this scare you away. It truly is a wonderful experience that you will not forget.

2 oz. vodka
½ oz. lemon juice
Garnish with lemon peel
Directions: Stir the vodka and lemon juice together in a glass. Drop in some ice and frozen mangos and fill it up with huckleberry soda. Garnish it with a lemon peel that just happens to look like a sinister mustache. Go crazy.
A note from the creator:
Twenty one years ago
today yesterday we got Super Mario Land 2, one of the best games that ever came out for Game Boy! Mario got new power ups as he traversed the land in search of six gold coins, culminating in his first ever showdown with WARIO, Since we’ve had that twisted anti-Mario character present in our lives for 21 years now, it’s time we got that man a drink (not that he seems to need one):
On November 1, 1992 Mario got to power up with carrots for the first time, transform himself into Rabbit Mario, and glide his way to Wario’s Castle. But Wario got to make use of his own carrots to become Rabbit Wario. The two have been matching wits for over two decades now and Wario’s made a great addition to the Nintendo universe. With that said, pour one of these out, relax and let the Wario hypnosis sooth your mind.
