Rusty Nail's Recipes

It’s been more than 90 degrees here for more than a week, and it’s after Memorial Day, so I say Summer is Here! The time has come, in the year, for sweet, cold drinks to ward off the heat and humidity. While today’s honoree might not have the option to kick back on a porch after a long day of work, she’s certainly earned a chilled treat, even if she does try to pay with caps instead of bits, and tries to avoid doing even that, whenever she can…

Ladies and Gentlemen…


It’s Paharita, from Anywhere But Here!

Rita is the first gryphon I’ve honored with a drink, here at The Pony Keg, and while she may be a little rough around the edges from eking out a living in Fallout: Equestria, somewhere, behind the painted multicolor talons, and beneath the bomb-collar, there’s a heart of gold…

Which I am sure she’ll sell to you, at 20% above retail.

A Paharita


  • 6 oz tequila
  • 4 oz Grand Mariner
  • 2 cups fresh (or frozen, but really, use fresh.) Raspberries
  • 4 cups ice
  • Chilled Margarita Glass
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 oz fresh Lime Juice
  • A little paper cocktail umbrella (THIS IS VITAL TO THE DRINK)

Special Equipment:

A Blender.

Making a Paharita:

  1. Combine all ingredients except the glass in blender
  2. Blend well
  3. Pour into glass
  4. Garnish with Umbrella
  5. Drink!

You’ve just finished making a Paharita!

The drink makes use of two of Rita’s favorite flavors for a potent potable, Raspberry and Lime. The placement of the umbrella is not only to keep mirelurks and molerats from getting into your drink, but also to honor the fact that in post-apocalyptic conditions, Rita is classy enough to carry her own little paper umbrella with her, so she can enjoy the aesthetics of her drink wherever she goes.

I hope to see as many of you as I can, at Trotcon, June 14-16!

Keep sending in suggestions as to who you’d like to see made into a drink, and Stay Thirsty, my friends!
