Capt Jack Harkness - Emergency Protocol 417 (Doctor Who cocktail)
2 parts Gin
2 parts Vodka
1/2 part Dry vermouth
1 Lemon twist
DIrections: Stir gin to chill and strain into a martini glass. With fresh ice, shake vodka and vermouth vigorously. Strain into same glass as gin. Take a lemon twist, rim the glass, and garnish. Sip and muse on the impossible.
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.

Super Wario (Super Mario Land 2 cocktail)
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.

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.

Tingle and Tingle Bottle (The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker shots)
1 part White tequila
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.

Rainbow Road (Super Mario Kart cocktail)
4 oz. Orange juice
½ oz. Gin
⅓ oz. Grenadine
⅓ oz. Rum
3 oz. Vodka
2 splashes Blue Curacao
Directions: Mix orange juice and gin together and pour them into the glass. Then, stir the rum and grenadine together and pour it slowly down the side of the glass - it should settle at the bottom, turning the bottom red and the area immediately above it orange. Mix the vodka and blue Curacao together and then layer it on top of the orange juice. The top should remain blue, but some should settle down to create a green layer. Like Super Mario Kart's toughest course, this drink may be difficult to finish.
A note from the creator:
People! The first Mario Kartgame game out for Super Nintendo 21 YEARS AGO TODAY! Super Mario Kartwas the first time we got to fall into infinite space off the seizure-inducing Rainbow Road. So, we really had no choice but to make this powerful, colorful, easy-to-spill drink:
In addition to taking our inaugural drifts around Rainbow Road, on September 1, 1992 we triggered boos and lightning bolts, played as Koopa Troopa and Bowser, and tied balloons to our karts and shot each other with shells FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER. The original game is still a ton of fun, but it’s great to see how much those basic elements have evolved over the last 21 years.
Here, have a taste of the madness! (video below):
