Sick of all the old drinking games, where you don’t understand the rules because you have too many weaknesses (the inability to say “no, thanks”) and not enough power-ups (second wind-anyone?)
By the time you figure things out, you’re downing a toxic mixture of every kind of alcohol imaginable and wondering how you managed to lose the round. (Wish you had dealt your Jolteon instead of your Pikachu now, don’t you?)
Now you can introduce your friends to a new deck of fun: Pokémon Cocktails. Forget Vodka Sunrises and Martinis, these drinks are way more delicious and ambitious. And you don’t even need to track down any bars like we did for our cocktail challenge – just an open alcohol store and you’re set to booze yourself away for the rest of the night.
The nine frozen cocktails are the invention of Tumblr user and Pokémon fan, meowpurrnom, and are of the ‘Eeveelution’ variety, with every one representing every known evolution of Eevee including the newest edition: Sylveon.
The mixes include:
Eevee: Cake vodka, Kahlua, Bailey’s, a chocolate éclair ice cream bar and chocolate syrup
Vaporeon: Rum, Malibu, blue Curacao, pineapple juice and Sprite
Jolteon: Tequila, Red Bull, margarita mix, lemon juice, Sprite and salt on the rim
Flareon: Fireball whiskey, peach Schnapps, iced tea, lemonade and dash of strawberry syrup
Espeon: Strawberry Vodka, Hpnotiq Harmonie, Chambord, cranberry juice and Sprite
Umbreon: Bourbon, Coke, lemon juice and orange juice
Glaceon: Rum, Blue Curacao, peppermint schnapps, lemonade, soda water and sugar on the rim
Leafeon: Tequila, peach Schnapps, lime juice, ginger ale, mint, honey and a drop of chocolate syrup for decoration
Sylveon: Cake Vodka, strawberry vodka, Bailey’s, a strawberry shortcake ice cream bar, cream and strawberry syrup
The measurements are left to you, and let’s face it, that’s the fun bit. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even take out the Pokedex and have a Pokemon showdown while mixing and drinking. Eeveelutionary thinking? We think so.
Just make sure to keep your kids away from this one; we have a feeling they might not appreciate it as much as you.
