Knock yourself out with these classic Nintendo beverages

St. Patrick’s Day is nearly upon us, and you know what that means: Chicago will dye its river green, San Francisco will be drunk by 11am, and somehow I will have managed to paste a Wii remote to my hands with the stick of spilled booze.


Over at The Domestic Scientist, amateur mixologist (and all-around crafty lady) Renée White is experimenting with game -themed drinks. So far she’s concocted the 1UP, the Zero Suit Samus, and the Triforce. Next week, she writes, she will unveil the ‘Moogle.’

My favorite drink is probably the 1UP shot, because it makes a certain videogamey sense—“Let’s give this party new life with this small, ingestible green thing.”

I think I’m going to invent the ‘Metroid,’ which will just be a cherry suspended in a shot glass filled with Diet Coke.

  1. And of course there are also the Portal themed drinks from Portal Bar.
    I need the Glados and the Cake Is Not A Lie in my bellow stat!

    This reminds me of a story!

    Alright, so every Classic Gaming Expo, on Saturday night, there is the Digital Press room party. Somewhat exclusive – the suites aren’t massive, and it’s limited to DP members. But there is a tradition to each one, and that is a classic video game themed shot of some sort of…liquor concoction. Sporting such terrible names as Centipede Piss or Donkey Kong’s Loincloth, if you can down the shot, you can keep the DP shot glass. Assuming you’re not like me, and get so hammered off of ONE shot that you completely forget to take it with you…
