Walker’s Blood (The Walking Dead cocktail)

Ingredients:
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.

Bloody Tears (Castlevania cocktail)

Ingredients:
Ice
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.

Critical Hit Cocktails with Mitch Hutts #1: PK Thunder (Earthbound / Super Smash Bros. cocktail)

The first official episode of Critical Hit Cocktails, as part of the Geek & Sundry Vlogs, is live! Today being Gaming Day during YouTube’s Geek Week, I thought it would be fun to make an Earthbound cocktail. A bunch of you have asked for an easy cocktail to make (the Zelda drink on the last video was a bit complicated) and so here it is: The PK Thunder!
