Hold on to your mittens, kittens. Not since the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster have geekery and alcohol crossed paths in such a pas de deux of awesome as they will the next time I play bartender.
Behold my revelation: Final Fantasy themed cocktails.
Breathtaking, isn’t it? Imagine: dark, brooding Leonhearts; tropical Zidanes; a whiskey-based Tifa that kicks like a mule. Aeris would be strong, but girly – champagne and hibiscus, with a dash of vanilla-infused vodka. Set alight, a mix of brandy and bourbon poured over ice might be a Sephiroth or One-Winged Angel, while Jenova could kill you outright: vodka, absinthe and tequila shaken with citrus and served straight-up. Lulu would be dark, but subtle: kahlua, chocolate liqueur and frangelico with cream and shaved chocolate. Cloud would refresh: apple-infused vodka with soda, lime and vermouth. Auron needs must involve rum, kahlua and coke, but an Eidolon would be kinder: midori, brandy and lemonade with a lemon twist.
Merciful Squaresoft. I’ve gone and made myself thirsty.
