Winter Soldier (Captain America: The Winter Soldier cocktail)

1.5 oz Black vodka (Blavod used)
1.5 oz Jack Daniel’s Winter Jack
1.5-2 oz Apple Cider (non-alcoholic)

Powerful, dark, wintery. This cocktail takes some of the characteristics of the Winter Soldier and embodies them into a drink that really packs a punch! Check out the video below on the Geek & Sundry Vlogs to see how to make it!

Video of Cruise can be viewed on YouTube: Some Willmar Car Club Members reported a 28 degree start of the day. The temperature did increase during the day, but the winds increased making it feel chilly all day. By the end of the car cruise, the temperature was at 48 degrees. However, that did not stop 105 cars from cruising from A&W Country Stop, in New London, to Kandi Mall, in Willmar. The chilled drivers were rewarded with Cub Food’s cookies and Viking Coca-Cola soft drinks for their participation. Click here for more car pictures at my Flickr site.


Vodka Cherry Pokeballs

I’ve seen rummy bears and vodka gummy worms, but what if you want something a bit more gamer themed? Imgur user BigEatsBen melted some bags of various colored gummy candy, mixed it with vodka, and formed each sphere into a total of 20 alcoholic Pokeballs. They look like an awesome snack for a themed party, or even just a fun treat to wrap up and give to fellow Pokemon trainers. Quite the rare candy.

Walker’s Blood (The Walking Dead cocktail)

1 oz Bourbon
1 oz Blackberry Brandy
Coca-Cola (to fill)
1 splash Grenadine

Directions: Mix the ingredients in a highball glass. See the video below for more details.

The Walking Dead is back on television. As a native Atlantan, I had to make a drink inspired by the horrible walkers and the city that the TV series takes place in. The mix of southern ingredients and easiness of the recipe make the perfect recipe to drink at camp after a long day of gathering supplies and slaying zombies. 


Phoenix Down (Final Fantasy Cocktail)

½ shot Absinthe
½ shot Zwack (Jagermeister will work too)
2 tsp. Simple Syrup
1 Splash Grenadine
Fill rest of the glass with Club Soda

Directions: Mix the absinthe, syrup, and soda water in a smaller glass (a perigord absinthe glass is used in the picture) until the drink becomes opalescent.  Add ice if you prefer the drink really cold. Before serving, add the Zwack and grenadine.  Both will settle nicely, leaving a nice orange on the top and a deep crimson below.

Unfortunately, Phoenix Downs may not be 100% effective when raising the dead, as I’m sure some spiky-headed ex-SOLDIERs know.

Bloody Tears (Castlevania cocktail)

4 Raspberries
1.25 oz Gin
1 splash Chambord
1 oz Lemon juice
1 oz Grenadine

Directions: Muddle the raspberries and add all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a coupe glass. The bits of raspberry seeds and fruit are the Bloody Tears. Ask your friends “what is a man?” and serve to the first person who answers correctly (answer: “a miserable pile of secrets”)

Happy Halloween! A vampire drink seemed appropriate for the occasion, so this episode Mitch will show you how to make Bloody Tears, a Castlevania inspired cocktail. Bloody Tears is one of the most recognizable songs in the series and a fan favorite. In fact, Songs of Adventure just covered it in their latest vlog! To go with this fantastic rendition, here’s the Bloody Tears cocktail for you to sip on.

Raphael (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cocktail)

3 oz Strawberry Pucker
1.5 oz Vodka
3 oz Cherry Soda
1 dash of Grenadine

Directions: Pour ingredients over ice in a highball glass and stir with bar spoon. Serve with pepperoni and sausage pizza, and a snarky comment.

Smaug’s Breath (The Hobbit shot)

1 part Goldschlager
1 part Fireball Cinnamon Whisky

In celebration of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug coming out in theaters today, I made a golden and fiery flaming shot inspired by Smaug. Check out the video below to see how it’s made.


The Goomba (Super Mario Bros. shot)

2 parts Sweet & Sour mix
1 part Vodka
1 part 99 Peaches
1 part UV Red vodka

Directions: Mix the sweet and sour mix, plain vodka, and 99 Peaches in a shaker and pour in a shot glass. Carefully layer the UV Red vodka on top. Serve, and be careful not to squish.
