Geeky Cocktail | Widow’s Kiss

Another Friday, another installment of Overwatch-themed geeky cocktails! I’m again collaborating on Drunkenwatch with my stream friends Skowalz, AcornBandit, and silenced_knight. This week features silenced’s main, Widomaker in “Widow’s Kiss”. This fun purple drink is dark and mysterious like Widow, and uses some french liqueurs to match her origin.

If you want to go really fancy, add some salt to the rim for when someone on your team picks widowmaker (unless its silenced_knight). s( ^ ‿ ^)-b

As always, if you make this drink, let me know! I’d love to hear or see how it turned out.

If you’re an Overwatch fan, have you played Orisa yet? We decided to welcome Orisa to the Overwatch family with the Fusion (Screw) Driver, based off her “Fusion Driver” weapon, and inspired by the Numbani poster below.

Alternatively, this is a really fancy screwdriver – a Fusion Driver! ‧º·(˚ ˃̣̣̥ω˂̣̣̥ )‧º·˚But it’s more fun having a theme cocktail – especially if it relates to an activity or event you’re attending.

  • Ice
Directions:
  • Add ice to glasses
  • Pour your vodka and midori
  • Add seltzer until your glass is almost full
  • For added sweetness, top your drink off with either simple syrup or white cranberry juice
  • Add in your berries
  • Mix everything well with a stir stick
  • Enjoy – you are now ready to activate the sound berrier!

Note: This recipe mild in flavor, so up the amount of midori or juice (or vodka!) if you like an extra punch.

Also note: You get extra points if you get play of the game while drinking this! ;)

If you end up making this drink at home, let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear if you enjoyed it.
