    Amanda Picotte

    Careful, this drink is flamin' hot.


    40ml Usquaebach Reserve

    40ml fresh blood orange juice

    15ml habanero simple syrup (In a saucepan, heat equal parts sugar and water. Slice one habanero pepper, and remove seeds. Add habanero slices to the pan. Allow to cool).

    Blood orange zest


    Combine all ingredients and stir with ice. Strain into a glass filled with ice. Flame the blood orange peel with a lighter to express the flavours. Drop into drink and serve.

    5. Pineapple Pikachu Daiquiri

    PikaaaaCHUUUUU. Recipe here.

    6. Meowth-jito

    Rum, mint, cherries and velvet falernum because we all know Meowth has a sweet side. Recipe here.

    7. Golden Goldeen

    Amanda Picotte

    Goldeen is just so classy. It's the classiest fish you ever saw. This is a suitably classy drink for a classy, classy fish.


    40ml Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva

    15ml Grapefruit Cordial

    15ml. Cocchi Americano

    Two dashes of Angostura Bitters


    Combine all the ingredients in a glass with large pieces of ice. Garnish with grapefruit zest twist.

    8. Team Valour

    Ok, I looked and I couldn't find a cocktail for either Mystic or Instinct. I AM TEAM MYSTIC AND I AM VERY UPSET BY THIS. But I'm still going to put this here for Team Valors cos I am such a nice person. Recipe here.

    9. MarGOrita

    So the three layers are meant to represent the three teams BUT IT'S NOT A WHOLE COCKTAIL TO YOURSELF IS IT. No, I'm not letting this go.

    The Instinct layer is pineapple, the Mystic layer is blue raspberry and the Valor layer is cherry and they're all laced with tequila. If you're *really* keen to rep your team though, you can leave out the other layers and just fill a glass with your own colour *sips full glass of frozen blue raspberry margarita*. Recipe here.

    10. Poliwag Martini

    Amanda Picotte

    Too many of these will make your eyes start to Poliwhirl.


    15ml The London No 1 gin

    15ml St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur

    15ml Lillet Blanc

    20ml lemon

    A dash of eggwhite

    Blueberries for garnish


    Shake in Boston shaker and double strain into a martini glass. Garnish with blueberries.

    11. Razz-Berry

    Amanda Picotte

    Serve this to someone and it'll have the same effect as a real Razzberry.


    170ml. La Quintinye Royal Rouge vermouth

    One bottle of Bisol Jeio prosecco

    One cup of raspberries

    Two tablespoons agave nectar


    Stir together the raspberries, vermouth, and agave nectar in a pitcher. Let the mixture sit and chill in fridge for about an hour, stirring occasionally. Pour into six champagne flutes and top with the prosecco.

    12. Electrode Shots

    For the red layer use creme de cacao mixed with red food colouring, or cinnamon schnapps if you want a more ~electrifying~ kick. Recipe here.

    13. Zapados Zester

    Amanda Picotte

    A suitably electrifying twist on the mimosa.


    115ml fresh orange juice

    30ml honey syrup (in a small pot over medium heat, combine 1 part honey and 1 part water and stir lightly until dissolved)

    One bottle of Sapporo beer

    Two to three dashes of orange bitters


    In a tall cocktail glass add orange juice and honey syrup, top with Sapporo beer and orange bitters. Stir gently with bar spoon and garnish with orange slice.

    14. Evolving Squirtle Cocktails

    From shot, to short drink to long drink, all laced with blue curacao. They also have Charmander and Bulbasaur evolving recipes, so you can pick your favourite starter. Recipe here.

    15. Jigglypuff Champagne Float

    Ok, so this isn't an official Pokémon cocktail, but I defy you to find a more Jigglypuff-esque drink. Recipe here.

    16. Eevolution Frozen Cocktail Menu

    Some genius made an extensive Pokémon cocktail menu so you might not be able to catch 'em all, but you can certainly drink a hefty portion of 'em. All recipes here.


    The shots pictured are Electrode shots. A previous version of this article said they were Voltorb shots.
