Gametail: The Swords & Wizardry

I need a drink, but not any type of drink I need a cocktail! But not any kind of cocktail, I need a cocktail based off an awesome game - a gametail :D.

Earlier this week +Stacy Dellorfano posted the cover of the new Swords & Wizardry, which should be Kickstarting soon. I am super excited, because I wrote an adventure for it! And if I do say so myself, it is metal as f*!#. Stacy asked me to make an adventure bridging a story game and an OSR game. I might cover that in another blog post, but let's get on to drinking!

Take a look and the /amazing/ new cover for S&W by Kaos Nest. I used it as the inspiration for the cocktail.

Now look at this beauty. Black and pink, the perfect combination for my gametail - the Swords & Wizardy!

  • 2 parts vodka
  • 1 part Cointreau
  • 2 parts cranberry juice
  • 1/4 part lemon juice
  • Black berries
  • Ice

How to
Roughly crush the berries in the bottom of your glass and then fill the glass with ice. Put all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker (or whatever you have to mix drinks in) and mix. Pour the drink over your ice, top with a circle of lemon, enjoy!

Cocktail fans may notice this is a messy version of a cosmopolitan. The black berries mix well with the cranberry juice and the extra lemon cuts through the Cointreau nicely. For a non-boozy/sweet version, keep the berries and the ice the same, but mix:
  • 3 parts sprite/7up (for people who aren't fans of sweet - I recomend tonic)
  • 3 parts cranberry juice
  • 1/4 part lemon juice

Drink up! And if you make this cocktail I want to see it! Hit me up on twitter @epicxcloth or on G+ +Elizabeth Chaipraditkul
