Cocktails Inspired by Evolutionary Stages of Pokémon

Cocktails Inspired by Evolutionary Stages of Pokémon
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 do just that, with a series that include three separate drinks inspired by each of the 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. The Charmander series looks particularly interesting, partly because it uses the truly excellent Fireball cinnamon whiskey, but also because you can light them on fire. Read on below to get the recipes for this and other intriguing Pokémon cocktails, but remember: Pokémon masters always drink responsibly. (The Drunken Moogle via Geekologie) Related:  Drinks & Party

Jello shots without the trash Ingredients: Strawberries (the biggest ones you can find) Strawberry jelly powder Creme de cacao Vodka Chocolate chips (optional) Wash the strawberries and pick out the nicest ones. You will need about 3 boxes worth of strawberries for 2 cups of jello. Cut off the bottoms so the strawberries can stand up but be careful to not make holes for the jello to leak out. Cut off the tops and hollow out the insides. For chocolate dipped strawberries, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave on low heat and then dip each strawberry in the melted chocolate. Mix 1 cup of boiling water and the jelly powder.

You basically just mix all the ingredients together, but the best way to do this is by mixing the frozen pink lemonade concentrate with the vodka first. Note: If you want the lemonade to be extra sweet, add a fifth can of concentrate to the mix. Then pour in all the beer.

Hiram Abiff, the True King of Egypt,1554BC The Nag Hammidi Scrolls and The Dead Sea Scrolls are another example of a treasure trove of the writings of the disciples in the 1st century AD. Dismissed by the church as heresy, they reveal a great deal of the 'spiritual' insight of the early Christians. We also have documentation of when rulers like Alexander changed history and tried to preserve everything he found in Egypt instead of trying to destroy it like the Romans did. He found what we now call the 'Emerald Tablets of Thoth' . These are a record of the words of the so-called mythical 'wisdom' God of Egypt recorded some time before 10,000 BC. In addition to this, there is a record stating that the Great Pyramid was never meant to be a burial chamber for any pharaoh but current Egyptian Authorities who are Muslim will not concede that the Egyptian culture is far older that any other culture on Earth except one.

Chocolate Guinness Goodness Recipe at Epicurious Editor's note: This recipe was developed by Shane Philip Coffey, the chef at Alias restaurant on New York City's Lower East Side. This rich and luscious dessert came about because I needed a special dessert for a St. Patrick's Day tasting menu. I was on a mission to use my favorite beer, Guinness, something I consider to be one of Ireland's gifts to the world. As the 17th of March drew closer, I looked for inspiration at my favorite Irish pub in Manhattan. Make the effort to find a good dark chocolate (about 70 to 72 percent cacao).
