Heroes and Halfwits Drinks
Is your party weary from a long adventure? Relax with some of these drinks, inspired by the characters from Heroes and Halfwits! Art by Ashto
Bor Ealis: Classic Shirley Temple
Paladin, what are you doing in a bar? Drink this. Take 3oz of Ginger Ale, and 3oz of Sprite, and pour them over ice. Add a splash of grenadine, a maraschino cherry, and there you go!
Albus Cumberbatch: Sleepy Hollow
Swirl a bit of absinthe in a rocks glass to coat it, and discard the remainder. In a coctail shaker, add 2oz of mezcal (or tequila) and an ounce of St. Elizabeth liqueur, and add 2 dashes of bitters. Shake with ice and strain into the glass. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary, and light it on fire. Use a lighter if you must, but using magic to light it is far more impressive.
Mogar Jones: Frozen Dark and Stormy
Like Mogar’s dragon breath, this drink is cold. Unlike Mogar’s dragon breath, this should not be used to entertain village children! Add 12oz of ginger beer, 1T of fresh ginger, the juice of 1 lime, and 2 cups of ice into a blender, and blend. Pour into a pint glass, leaving room to float 4 ounces of Meyers Dark Rum at the top.
Orma: Motor Oil
It’s pretty likely that Orma would actually drink motor oil (just like she ate an amnesia-inducing frog) but here’s the drink version. In a large shooter glass, mix 1oz Jagermeister, .5oz Rumpel Minze, .5oz Goldschlager, and .5oz Malibu.
Mr. Bojangles: Bloody Mary Shots
There’s a drinking game here (and why wouldn’t there be), so you’re going to need a lot of this one. In a pitcher, mix 1 part vodka to 3 parts of your favorite Bloody Mary mix (ours is below!). Serve in shot glasses. Every time the bard does something shifty, drink!
Dungeon Master: Corpse Reviver #2
It takes a lot of liquor to put up with this party. So, here’s a drink from the old world that packs a punch! In a shaker, combine 1oz gin, 1oz Lillet Blanc, 1oz Cointreau, 1 oz lemon juice, and a splash of absinthe. Shake over ice and strain into your favorite goblet!
Please remember to drink responsibly! Don’t drink and cast spells!
