Geeky Cocktail | Overwatch Sound Berrier

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!

Kyla Is Inspired | Overwatch Sound Berrier Cocktail

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
  • 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.

Nerdy Gift Guide | Ugly Sweaters

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:

What I Wore | Nerf This!

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.
