Ok so this post is going to be in the first person and by the end of reading this you will surely have a new drink to try and a new game to pick up off of Amazon. Based on a poll that I posted on Metroplague last week and a question I posed in Facebook groups, people in the Goth and Horror communities are interested in creepy recipes and board games.
As an avid board gamer, I have to say that it pleases me to discover that rolling dice can coincide with the darkness within, so long as you don’t roll a dreaded 1. So, I have decided to create Board Games and Booze days on Metroplague.
The drink of the day is the Shark Attack. This drink blends the colors of the sea and fresh blood in one glass of goodness to kick off the Summer. I found the original recipe here, read through it and after my first try, just KNEW I could make this drink have a bite that really sneaks up on people. So, without further adieu, here is Metroplague’s version of the Shark Attack.
- Kraken Rum (Or any Dark Rum)
- Malibu Rum (Or any Light Rum)
- Pineapple Juice
- Swedish Fish
- Sour Patch Kids
- 1 Regular Shot Glass
- Cubed Ice
- Old Fashioned Drinking Glass
Step 1: Fill your chilled glass over the brim with cubed ice, and get your shot glass ready.
Step 2: Pour in 1/2 shot of light and dark Rum; Pour 1 shot of Curacao, then 1/2 shot of Pineapple juice.
Step 3: Stir the concoction and drizzle 3-5 drops of Grenadine over the exposed ice to get your bloody look.
Step 4: Add one Swedish Fish and two Sour Patch Kids for show; Sip back, relax, and remember that after two of these bad boys, you may start to feel a little numb in the lips.
Speaking of the feeling of death at your fingertips, Asmadi Game’s One Deck Dungeon is the perfect accompaniment to a fun night of drinks with friends. With a game running in at under an hour, you will get the experience of taking dice gambles in a Dungeons & Dragons campaign without having to put up with the bureaucracy of playing nice with other team members.
The chances of winning are slim to none, but while drinking some Shark Attacks, the hour spent with One Deck Dungeon will fly by.
Let me know if anyone picks this up or tries the drink out! Enjoy, my Plague Rats!
