Besaid Island (Final Fantasy X cocktail)
30 ml white rum (Bacardi Superior used)
30 ml watermelon liqueur (Marie Brizard Watermelon used)
1 lime (for lime juice and garnish)
Directions: Mix the rum and watermelon liqueur in a lowball glass over ice. Squeeze in lime juice and add a lime wedge to the side as a garnish. While this isn’t a drink you would order at a Blitzball match, it seems absolutely perfect for watching the Spira sunset on the beach.

Batman: Arkham Party (Batman: Arkham City shot set)
Blackcurrant coulis (you can buy this in bottles or jars if you don’t want to make your own)
Directions: “This shot set sees some of Gotham’s most dastardly villains taking on the Dark Knight. For The Riddler, pour 20ml of Midori down the inside of glass, then add 5ml of vodka over a spoon. For a Mr Freeze, crush some ice and pour it into your shot glass, followed by 10ml of Blue Curacao and 10ml of Sambuca. Your Joker is made from 15ml Blue Curacao, cranberry juice and rum with a topping of popping candy (“You’ll need to stir it up with a straw to get the colour,” says James). Then we have a Poison Ivy, grown from 15ml of rum, a fresh mint leaf (or a dash crème de menth if you prefer) and sugar syrup. Finally, create your Batman/Bruce Wayne shooter with 5ml of blackcurrant coulis and champagne. Now let the flavour battle commence!”
The caped crusader better have some paracetamol in that utility belt – this isn’t so much a cocktail as a super villain fist fight.

“The last of our TRON themed cocktails. Tron is smooth, citrus-y and all around good. My personal favorite of all three. Tron was Alan Bradly’s home made security program and he fought for the rights of the programs and users alike, in legacy he was brought over to the new system and became Rinzler, and fell into the ISO Ocean and remembered who he was.”

Commentary from EXPBarOnline: “This week’s drink comes from a game close to the hearts of many Final Fantasy fans. Blood of the Ancients was made in memory of the death of Aeris of Final Fantasy VII; Arguably one of the saddest scenes in game history. So take a drink, and feel the energy of the Life Stream, of the Ancients, of Aeris.

1.5 oz. grenadine
1 maraschino cherry

Desmond: “The usual, I just add some gin.”
A Shirley Temple is traditionally a non-alcoholic drink. In Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, it is revealed that Desmond makes his own alcoholic version of the drink, dubbed a Shirley Templar, by adding gin. Photography by The Drunken Moogle.
caoine: The Good Doctor (Mega Man / The Protomen cocktail)
- Bourbon (recommend Maker’s Mark, Bulleit, or Knob Creek), as much as you can handle
- SNAP (a ginger liqueur) to taste
- Ginger beer (ideally Reed’s Extra Ginger Brew or Gosling’s Ginger Beer)
- 2 Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine cherries
Directions: To make Doctor Light’s cocktail, mix all ingredients and serve on the rocks in a lowball glass. Spear the two cherries on a cocktail toothpick and place on top.
Emma Story, the drink’s creator, explains, “There was some discussion a while back about how shameful it is that the Drinkify entry for the Protomen is… a Bud Light. While I’ve been known to drink whatever shitty beer is available when the occasion calls for it, I figured we could do better than that… This has been a favorite cocktail of mine for a while, and I have served it to both K.I.L.R.O.Y. and the Reanimator with good results.”
