The ghosts of The Suffering want you to suffer in any way possible. Including giving you the hangover from hell! Have the (last) night of your life with The Suffering cocktails!
The Suffering Cocktails
1. Jarvis Rice’s Exposed Brain Shot
- 50ml Limoncello
- 30ml Grenadine
- 10ml Baileys Irish Cream
- A tall shot glass
- (Hanging noose optional)
Add the limoncello to the shot glass. Gently pour in the grenadine until it settles at the bottom so you have a layer of red and a layer of yellow. Pour the Baileys into the centre of the limoncello, until you get what looks like a congealed brain (you may not need much!).
Tip: Down this shot in one, as it’s as nasty as Jarvis Rice himself!
2. Lisa Vaughan’s Bloated Corpse Float
- 280ml lemonade
- 50ml Curacao
- 25ml Dark Rum
- 1 scoop vanilla ice cream
- Serve in a pint glass
Pour the Curacao into the pint glass. Gently add the lemonade, leaving plenty of room at the top of the glass (Lisa likes to make a squall). Add the dark rum and watch it darken the stormy seas. Finish by placing a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and batten down the hatches!
3. Connor Rourke’s Vertigo Vertical Cocktail
- 200ml Apple Juice
- 25ml Irish Whiskey
- 10ml Blue Curacao
- Stirrer (a chopstick or straw is fine)
- Be careful on the stairs
Set your glass up in a precarious position on the stairs. Add curacao. Carefully pour in apple juice, followed by the whiskey, and gently swirl the drink with a chopstick or drink stirrer so the colour changes to green.
4. Anthony Pile’s Hellfire & Brimstone Hangover
- 25ml Violet Gin
- 25ml Vodka
- 125-150ml Tonic Water, depending on how evil you want to be
- Champagne flute
- A few stolen coins as garnish
Light a candle. Add the violet gin and vodka to the champagne flute. Chant to Pluto. Gently pour in the tonic water. Descend into your cave and sip.
5. Po’s Peruvian Sunrise Slammer
- 50ml Cointreau
- 100ml Pineapple Juice
- 5ml Grenadine
- Short tumbler
- Stones for protection
Mix the pineapple juice and the Cointreau (don’t shake too much or it will go frothy and Po will get angry). Add the grenadine so it sinks to the bottom and creates the sunrise. Using a straw or a chopstick, give it a gentle swirl so some of the grenadine bleeds into the pineapple juice. Po likes it when things bleed.
