OK, I swear not everything I do has to do with geeky cocktails! I’m again collaborating on Drunkenwatch, though I know that’s all I’ve been posting lately! I have so many ideas for posts but not enough time to do them, so for now this series is taking priority.

This week’s installment is a champagne toast to Overwatch’s 1 year anniversary! We didn’t make up a drink, and instead are toasting using the classic champagne cocktail, Kir Speciale. I’ll post the recipe below if you don’t know how to make it :)

This week we’re featuring the usual squad of Skowalz, AcornBandit, silenced_knight, with special guest streamer Starbuck!

The whole reason I started playing Overwatch was to play DVa (who isn’t even my main anymore), so it’s about time we featured a DVa-themed post. To toast with us and make a Kir Speciale:

You will need (makes 1):
  • Champagne
  • Blackcurrant liqueur (Creme de Cassis)
  • Triple Sec (just a splash)
  • Raspberries or blackberries (for garnish)

Not pictured: we forgot to add the berries to the top for a little extra flair! Epic fail. They really make the drink!

Directions:
  • Pour champagne into a flute, 3/4 full
  • Drizzle in the blackcurrant liquor and triple sec
  • Add a few raspberries/blackberries to the top
  • Wait for the ingredients to settle, and enjoy!

Sam got me this cute DVa jacket for my birthday, so I took the opportunity to throw together a fun casual cosplay – nothing serious, and I already owned the shirt and wig. DVa is fun to cosplay!

And as a final side note to Overwatch: THANK YOU for giving me tons of art, cosplay, and blog post ideas this past year…I’m looking forward to lots of creative ideas in the upcoming year!
