Oogie Boogie (The Nightmare Before Christmas cocktail)

1.5 oz Jägermeister Spice
.75 oz Kahlua
Around 6 oz Root Beer
Gummy Worms

Directions: Mix Jägermeister Spice and Kahlúa in a lowball glass over ice. Fill with about 6 oz of your favorite root beer and garnish with a few gummy worms. Sing Oogie Boogie’s song and serve.

This drink is inspired by the bug filled baddy from The Nightmare Before Christmas. A blend of spice, vanilla, and a hint of coffee, it’s a great drink for around Halloween. Make sure to check out more of Mitch’s Critical Hit Cocktails and the other vloggers on the Geek & Sundry Vlogs channel.


Thanks to George Hoefer (Spaceman Fantastiques) for the awesome remix of This is Halloween used in the video! 

DigRat (Twitch Plays Pokemon cocktail)

.75 oz Bourbon
1.5 oz Creme de Cacoa
2.5 oz Root Beer

Twitch Plays Pokemon has become one of the neatest phenomena I’ve seen on the internet. The amount of fan art and content that has come out of it in the few weeks that it has existed is crazy awesome. I simply had to create my own tribute, in drink form, for my newest Geek & Sundry Vlog. Critical Hit Cocktails presents: The DigRat. Earthy ingredients were chosen and served in a cubed glass to represent the digging element of the great/traitorous pokemon and the units of movement in the game. Who was your favorite Pokemon in the generation one Twitch Plays Pokemon playthrough?
