st. patrick’s day


Whoa nerdbastards, two top 10 lists in one day? Oh how you spoil us. Hey, anything to make your day a little more lush.

Let’s be honest, on St Patrick’s Day you may fool yourself into thinking your celebrating your Irish history (or pretending you have one) but you’re really just looking to get drunks. Haha, you lushes. I knew it. But if you’re getting drunk you should get drunk the geeky way with these ten sci-fi, video game and comic book inspired mixed drinks. Some of them are even green! How festive.

The Princess Leia

  • 1/2 shot Bombay Sapphire gin
  • 1/2 shot VeeV Acai liquor
  • Champagne

In a champagne flute, add the VeeV and Sapphire, stir, then top off glass with your sparkling wine or champagne of choice.


Metroid Cocktail

  • 1/2 shot Bacardi Big Apple Rum
  • 1/2 shot Coconut Rum
  • 1/2 glass Kiwi Strawberry Minute Maid (or Kool-Aid)
  • A little less than 1/2 a glass Sprite
  • 3 Strawberries

Shake the two rums and Kiwi Strawberry Minute Maid and pour into a lowball glass. Add the Sprite for a bit of flavor and carbonation. Drop in three strawberries as a garnish. If you choose, you can use your ice beam freezer to cool the alcohol before you make the drink.
