OMG am I back with another geeky cocktail? You bet I am! To stick in the theme of previous drinks, this falls in line with Overwatch’s brand new Paris Map!
This cocktail uses two french liquors: Champagne and Chambord, a raspberry liqueur from the Loire Valley of France. I remember when I first heard this ordered out; I immediately had to try it myself! It’s kind of a classic for me. Pair these together for one very french cocktail to cheers the new Overwatch map!
You will need:
- Cranberry juice
- Raspberries for garnish
For this drink, fill your champagne flute about 3/4 of the way full. Add 1/2 shot of cranberry juice and about a teaspoon of the Chambord (any more and the drink will be too sweet!) Top with a few raspberries, and enjoy!
As always, if you make this drink, let me know! I’d love to hear or see how it turned out. And let me know if you’ve been playing the new Paris map! Do you love it?
Oh look, another Overwatch geeky cocktail! This time the drink is in honor of both the summer games and Mei’s new short, which I may have teared up for. Have you seen it yet? It’s adorable and makes me love Mei even more. I even did a casual cosplay of her!
You will need:
- 2 shots of vodka
- 1/2 shot blue curacao
- Optional: Iced tea (to make an arnold palmer)
- Lemon wedges
- Chill your glass ahead of time for a really refreshing drink
- Add ice to glass
- Pour in vodka, lemonade, blue curacao
- Stir (or shake first if you prefer)
- Add a lemon wedge and enjoy!
Do you play Overwatch? If so, who do you main? I technically have the most hours on Lucio but both Mercy and Mei are becoming my go-to ladies.
While this drink is great for a hot summer day, I’m personally ready for cooler weather and for the heat to end. But might as well enjoy this while the weather holds – cheers to the weekend!
I’m so excited to share this week’s geeky cocktail! We’re calling it Cruisin’ for a Bruisin’, based on D.Va’s new Cruiser skin & the vibes on Route 66. I’m currently in the process of making Cruiser D.va, but I wore this shirt and wig to get some photos for this post. Once the costume is complete I’ll be making a full costume breakdown on the gun, shirt, and wig.
Cruisin for a Bruisin’ is a spin on the classic Tom Collins cocktail, which was very popular during the 50′s and 60′s. Traditionally it’s made with gin, lemon juice, simple syrup & club soda. To bring it up to date and give it a little D.Va kick, we’re using White Out Mountain Dew in place of the simple syrup & club soda. It’s light and citrus-y… a perfect fit for this drink!
You will need (makes 1):
- 1 shot gin
- 1 Lemon
- 6oz White Out Mt. Dew
- Cherry for garnish
- Put your glass in the freezer to frost
- In a shaker add ice, gin, and 1/2 a lemon’s worth of juice. Shake.
- Pour over ice in your cool frosty glass
- Top with mountain dew
- Garnish with a cherry and slice of lemon
This drink is part of the the Drunkenwatch series, an ongoing collaboration with Skowalz, AcornBandit, and silenced_knight. Go give them all a follow!
Let me know if you make this drink :)
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):
- 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!
- 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!
Happy Friday! Yes, we have yet another Overwatch geeky cocktail! Drunkenwatch is an ongoing collaboration with Skowalz, AcornBandit, and silenced_knight.
This week we’re doing something a little different – Mercy-themed for her voice line “Piece of cake!” This is also based on the fact that we wanted birthday cake shots becuase my birthday is tomorrow :) So of course I used this opportunity to dress in casual Mercy and take some photos :) I’ve never done anything birthday-related on the blog so I was really excited for this.
This recipe was originally found on Bailey’s website, though we added a modification.
You will need (makes 2):
- 2 oz of cake flavored vodka
- 1 oz of Baileys (original recipe calls for Vanilla Cinnamon, but it’s seasonal so we used plain), OR
- 1 oz of RumChata (for a different flavor other than coffee)
- Whipped cream
- Mix the vodka and Bailey’s/RumChata with ice in a shaker
- Strain into shot glasses, and fill almost to the top
- Add whipped cream and sprinkles
As always, if you make this drink, let me know! I’d love to hear or see how it turned out.
