Game Inspired Drinks from Retro Video Games

First of all, shoutout to Drunken Moogle to being one of the premier places of developing the video game drinks. As anyone knows, I'm a HUGE fan of video games (as I have a Playstation 3 Game Console blog site) and I do love building and posting up different cocktail recipes. Besides the ones I will post on here, I will definitely send you to some great videos of video game cocktail recipes. Peep below to see what Retro Video Games posted a while back. There are quite a bit of them! If you want to look at some cool gaming recipes, you can check out some of the ones I've posted on my gaming site.

Flicky with Chirp shots

1/4 Blue Curacao
1/4 Bacardi Razz
2/4 Fanta Lemon
Mix the Blue Curacao and Bacardi Razz, shake with ice and pour into a glass. Top it off with the Fanta Lemon.
Chirp shot
2/3 Mango Liqueur
1/3 Pineapple drink mix (could also work with pineapple juice)
Mix the ingredients together and shake it with ice, then pour into a shot glass.

Jade (from Beyond Good & Evil)
1/4 Apple Sourz
1/4 Cointreau
2/4 Sprite
Mix Apple Sourz with the Cointreu, shake with ice. Pour into a tall glass and top it off with Sprite. (If the apple sour doesn’t add enough green to the drink then add some caramel color)

Chocobo (from Final Fantasy)
1/2 Rose’s Lime Juice Cordial
1/2 Pineapple Liqueur
Pour together, shake it and add a slice of lemon on top

Vampire’s Kiss (Castlevania)
1/2 Red Wine (or Port wine if you prefer it sweeter)
1/2 Passoa (Passion fruit liqueur)
Stir the ingredients together and pour into a small wine glass. I tied a black ribbon into a bow on the foot and attached a blood red flower on it to get that gothic romantic touch. If you fail to get the ribbon to stick to the top of the foot then it’s ok, it looks good when it’s at the bottom as well.

Mega shoutout Retro Video Games for these amazing looking cocktails!
