“The Frag Grenade (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare cocktail)”
Crème de Menth
Baileys Energy drink
Directions: “Not so much a cocktail as a military exercise, this mission features two shooters colliding in an energy drink combat zone. Start by making a Soap MacTavish – get a shot glass and pour in limoncello, then Crème de menth. Now concoct a “Jagernaut”, which is Jagermeister, then Baileys in another shot glass. Now get a half-pint glass and fix a “Makarov” – pour in your energy drink of choice, plus a shot of Black vodka. Now, wedge your two shooters in the mouth of the half-pint glass. Your first step is to pull the pin on the Soap Mactavish, by carefully yanking the glass free and downing the shooter. This will of course, result in your Jagernaut depth charging into the Makarov – now drink the resulting combination. That’s right, it’s the ultimate shooter-‘em-up.”

1 oz Fresh lemon juice
6 Maraschino cherries with stems
Directions: Mix the Blue Curacao and grenadine and divide into the bottom of 6 shot glasses. Pour vodka, Midori, pineapple juice, and lemon juice in a shaker and shake to combine.
