“What do you mean, ‘no contest’? I could have been way more drunk if I knew there was a contest!”
Linkin Park & Shadow AMVs. Embarrassing fancharacters. Dealing with 12-year-olds who get angry with you for daring to not be blindingly positive.
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.
“and strength of drink.”
Not-so-perfect Perfect Chaos Drink (4 servings)
40 small white beans
0.25l of cyan energy drink
1l of strong vodka (at -15 centigrade)
Split all ingredients but vodka in 4 equal parts and put them in small plastic bottles, then freeze them while shaking them. Pour vodka into 4 glasses and put a Notsoperfect Chaos into each.
This somehow reminded me of this:
I have no idea if the whole “gumball eyes” was taken from the nickname for MS’ eyes, but it’s fun to think that they played on a fan insult. (Actually a pretty damn tasty icecream)

Echidna Bittersweet Love: 2/4 Tequila, 1/4 Pomegranate Juice, 1/4 Fanta Orange. Add Tabasco drops at will, plus 2/4 ice rocks.

Take 2 spoon fulls of Cranberry Juice.
Fill the glass half way with Blue cap whole Milk.
Top it off with some whipped cream.
Finally grab an Acorn and crack away, dusting the little bits that fall off, onto the whipped cream.
It tastes good and it gets the job done.
