Booze Cruise: Character Inspired Cocktails

- Advertisement -

From Gotham to Westeros, get ready for the nerdiest drinking binge of your life. There’s something to be said about when two amazing things come together. Marshmallow cream and chocolate cookies became Oreos; blankets and sleeves became the Snuggie; capitalism and someone’s dream of creating a cult of addicted basics led to Starbucks. Another addition to this list is pretty obvious if you ask me: alcohol and geekiness. So grab your goblet, viking horn, or Daily Planet coffee cup and hold on to your dipies babies, because it’s gonna get really real. More boozy-ful creations coming later, but here’s a few to wet your whistle.
