Man, the Sonic fandom can really drive you to drinking at times.
Therefore, it was a wise decision on behalf of Sega to hold Sonic Boom in a venue with a bar, because lord knows it was needed. To the credit of Club Nokia, they tried to join in the festivities of the night with a house cocktail: Sonic Rocks. Made with blue curacao, vodka, lemon and Sprite, the drink was described by forum regular Ashura2k as tasting “like a Chaos Emerald.” Your guess on interpretation is as good as mine. However, I do know one thing: a drink made with those ingredients is going to be relatively weak. That’s why I’m betting that the Retro community can come up with an even better Sonic-related cocktail–so much so that we’re giving away a set of Sonic shot glasses to whoever can create the best drink.
Details and rules after the cut.
1. You must create a Sonic-related cocktail. Granted, we’ll be pretty lax with interpretation: if you want to make a Porker Lewis bacon martini or something involving Mega Mack, we’ll roll with it, but you need to tie it into the Sonic series somehow.
2. Your cocktail must be original in some way. We have Google too. We’re aware of the few “Sonic the Hedgehog” drinks floating about. Don’t be lame.
3. Your entry must be submitted by July 1, 2011.
Cocktails will be judged on their creativity, taste, and strength of drink. Judging shall be done by Sonic Retro staff. Winners will be announced either through a podcast or through a video demonstrating the winners. The grand prize winner will win a set of four (4) Sonic shot glasses, with the first and second runners-up receiving three packs of Sega Freaks cards.
Good luck! We look forward to testing your entries.
