The sophisticated Pokémon
trainer demands a beverage that will meet the needs of his or her discerning palate. The Pokémon cocktails
developed by the author(s) of the Drunken Moogle blog
does just that, with a series that include three separate drinks inspired by each evolutionary stages of various pocket monsters. Each series begins with a shot, moves on to a midsize drink served in a tumbler, and then a highball-sized cocktail. It's notable that each drink builds on the previous, so the Charmeleon contains the ingredients from the Charizard, and so on.
series looks particularly interesting, partly because it uses the truly excellent Fireball cinnamon whiskey
, but also because you can light them on fire. See that weird blue haze above the shot glass? That's what Bacardi 151 looks when in flames.
Read on below to get the recipes for this and other intriguing Pokémon cocktails, but remember: Pokémon masters always drink responsibly.
Colombian authorities are currently investigating a strange explosion which rattled the state of Santander yesterday, and which may have been caused by a meteorite crashing down to Earth. (Fortunately, no one was reported dead or injured.) The explosion was preceded by a fireball in the sky: One observer described it as being
"a ball of fire like a big rainbow"; another said that it had
a "light blue front and [the] back had left an orange flame and some smoke." The explosion was supposedly so powerful, it caused glass windows to shatter in nearby houses.
