Wow, 2 weeks straight of geeky cocktails? I’m glad I have friends helping me collab and come up with all these ideas! Overwatch Drunkenwatch has officially become a ~thing with Skowalz, AcornBandit, and silenced_knight – all awesome Twitch streamers who deserve a follow.
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.
You will need (makes 1):
- 2 shots vodka
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup pineapple juice
- Maraschino cherries
- 1 Blood Orange
- Plain seltzer
Add 1 ice cube into you glass (we used champagne flutes to mimic the tall Numbani poster)
- Carefully pour in a small layer of maraschino cherry juice
- Mix the orange juice, vodka, and pineapple juice together
- Pour the juice mixture over the maraschino cherry juice
- Top with seltzer for fizz
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.
As always, if you make this drink, let me know! I’d love to hear or see how it turned out.
Tonight I’ll be playing
overwatch drunkenwatch with my cool Twitch friends, Skowalz, AcornBandit, and silenced_knight. In honor of Overwatch, we created a fun little cocktail for the theme: Sound Berrier, featuring my main, Lucio!
You will need (makes 1):
- 2 shots raspberry vodka
- 1/2 shot Midori melon liquor
- Seltzer (I used blueberry flavor)
- Berries of your choosing (I like blueberries and blackberries for color contrast)
- Splash of simple syrup or white cranberry juice for added sweetness
- 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.

What kinds of presents are you getting for the gamers in your life this year?
Welcome to this year’s Nerdy Gift Guide, Part I! For the first part of this series, I wanted to share something we can all relate to: ugly sweaters! I’ve worn my share of ugly sweaters in the past, but never anything “nerdy”. This year that changes! Here are some of my favorites, ranging from Game of Thrones, to Crunchyroll, to Portal. Hopefully there’s something for everyone:
one | Pikachu Sweater
two | The Christmas Cake Is A Lie
three | Winter Is Coming Sweater
four | Crunchyroll Hime Sweater
five | Super Christmas Bros
six | Star Trek Sweater
seven | Christmasvania Sweater
Will you be attending any ugly sweater parties this year? I personally have my eye on the Crunchyroll sweater…if you have any other sweater ideas, let me know!
If you’ve been seeing my posts over the past few weeks, you’ll know this isn’t my first time posting something related to the game Overwatch, though it is my first outfit post!
I picked up both the Nerf This! tee and the bunny tights at Connecticon last month, and I’ve really been loving the combo together. (I did get asked on instagram though, and I’m so sorry but I can’t remember the vendor who sold this :< ) DVa is my favorite character to play (& Lucio!), and she’s so adorable, too. This inspired outfit is a lot of fun to wear, and the bunny tights really pulled it together for me.
Who is your favorite Overwatch character, and what do you think they’d wear if they went “casual”?
