The Domfather (Gears of War Cocktail)
1 shot black cherry rum
1 shot Captain Morgan’s rum
1 shot grenadine
Directions: Mix first three ingredients and pour over ice in a highball or pint glass. Fill the rest of the glass with half Sprite and half lemonade. Drink it down and KILL ALL LOCUST!
Story Behind the Drink: This drink was co-created by Carlos Ferro, the voice actor of Dom in the Gears of War games. While at E3 2011, Drunken Moogle reader Joe Fronczek met Ferro at a Gears of War 3 after party. They attempted to order a Crimson Omen, but the bar unfortunately didn’t have all the ingredients, so they made their own drink- the Domfather. Below is a picture of Ferro/Dom and Fronczek at the bar.
Since the time we posted posted this, Joe, 8 Bit Brandt, and Red Like the Color have started their own geek drink site, called EXPBarOnline. They recently created a post of their own for the Domfather drink, which can be viewed here.
“Nazis may not be great, but this “gloo-vine” stuff is delicious.” - B.J. Blazkowicz
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 orange
- 10 whole cloves
- 1 (750 ml) bottle red wine
- In a saucepan, combine the water, sugar and cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer.
- Cut the orange in half and squeeze the juice into the simmering water. Push the cloves into the outside of the orange peel and place peel in the simmering water. Continue simmering for 30 minutes until thick and syrupy.
- Pour in the wine and heat until steaming but not simmering. Remove the clove-studded orange halves.
- Serve hot in mugs or glasses.

“This is krogan liquor - ryncol. You’ll set off radiological alarms after you drink it. Should I pour you a quad?”
(Drink created and photographed by The Drunken Moogle. Warning: DON’T take this drink lightly. It is extremely potent, just as in the game. As always, be responsible when consuming alcohol, especially this cocktail.)
