Happy Snowdown Showdown



Wishing everyone a Happy and Safe Snowdown! I hope to see you all next year as we attempt to get to 100 champion drinks and beyond! Please enjoy this classic holiday cocktail to rev up your Snowdown spirit.

Unfortunately this is the last post for 2012. There will be no updates till 2013. I'll be spending the holiday period making up some drinks from the backlog. Thanks for all the support you guys have given since I started and I'll see you next year!

Elise, The Spider Queen


Warning: Drink this will not give you spider like powers!


Creator's Note: I Live! Sorry guys, like most people I've been very busy this holiday season. As such it doesn't give me much time to make new drinks.

I hope to release at least 1 more for this year, and start getting ready for next year.

No Alcolol this Week

I must apologize but I haven't gotten a new Alcolol ready for this week. I'm currently experimenting with new drinks (nothing I'm happy with yet) and tracking down ingredients.

Sorry!

No Update this week....

Unfortunately I got really sick end of last week and I'm currently on medicine which means no alcohol and I can't taste anything so no mocktails either (I mean really unless it's  got a really strong flavor I can't taste anything different between food).

This means no new AlcoLoL this week. However I'll have some yummy cocktails ready for next week.

Q&A with Nimhain

Hello! I've been reading some of the threads and feedback that AlcoLoL has been receiving and I'd like to answer some of the more frequently said comments/ questions.

You couldn't make these drinks in a real bar....
I'm aware that some of my drinks have a lot of alcohol in them and thus cannot be made up in a real bar. I am not a bartender nor have I had any training as one. This is just something I do for fun and as a hobby outside of video games.

Most of these drinks aren't even original...
I did mention in the Welcome post that I would be using both a few originals (because it's really hard to create 100 or so completely original drinks) and existing drinks (hopefully tweaking them to get a slightly different effect). I try to make each drink feel unique but it can be hard to without sacrificing flavor.

That looks like it would taste awful...
I've drunk everything I post (unless it has a ingredient that I have an allergy to, then I get my partner-in-crime Sirrian to drink it for me). I'm aware that people enjoy different tastes to my own, but I encourage people to give something a try before you judge it. If you try and hate it, that's fine. Just don't judge because it "looks" disgusting.

The average age for the LoL community is under-age, you're promoting under-age drinking...
I have mentioned in the Welcome and in the original thread I posted on the LoL NA forums to drink resposibly and safely. The under-age community is the reason I started adding mocktails. I'm currently focusing on creating more mocktails so that the under-age LoL players can have something from here as well.

Some of the drinks just seem to be random with a champion attached...
I have 3 reasons I make a drink up for a champion:
1. The drinks appearance remindes me on the champion (eg. Cassiopeia, Veigar).
2. I think a type of alcohol relates well with the champion (Soraka=Banana Liqueur, the Ninjas= Sake)
3. The name of the recipe I'm using make me think of a champion (Shaco= Jack in a Box, Nocturne= Nightmare).

These drinks are just my interpretation of the champion. Everyone is going to have their own view of what alcohol should be in each champion's drink.

Can you make champion X next?
I will certainly try but I don't really have a plan on how I do each champion. I have to find either a recipe, ingredient or vision for how I want that champion to look.


I want to thank everyone for the feedback and support that has been given so far to AlcoLoL. Look forward to seeing some new mocktails in the coming week.

Drinking too much may not improve your rocket grabbing skills...

World Cocktail Week Over

Thanks to everyone who came each day to see the new cocktails. I hope everyone enjoy this past week.

I'll be switching back to the 1-2 posts per week. I will say while I have a couple of yummy cocktails on the way. I also have a couple more mocktails I'm currently working on so some of them will start appearing in a couple or weeks or so (it depends on how they taste first).

World Cocktail Week

Summoners, from the 6th of May- 13th of May is World Cocktail Week. To celebrate this I will be putting one new recipe up each day. Keep your eyes open, as ninjas may appear on the drinking list.

BOOM!


Please note that while picture shows a "cocktail glass", the recipe calls for a tall shot glass. I own several cocktail glasses of different sizes. The one used in the image is the same size as a shot glass.

Never explore ancient ruins under the influence...

To transform this mocktail to a cocktail. Switch the Chocolate Syrup with Godiva Chocolate Liqueur.

You can turn this kid friendly mocktail into an adult's cocktail by switching the Strawberry syrup with Strawberry Liqueur.
