2. Boozy Bell-Sprout

Amanda Picotte

Bright yellow and herbaceous, just like the real thing.


60ml Blue Nectar Reposado Special Craft Tequila

3 tbsp. crushed pineapple

15ml lemon juice

20ml agave nectar

One sage leaf


Combine all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Top with ice and shake vigorously. Strain over crushed ice. Garnish with pineapple and sage leaf.

4. Charmander's Ember

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.


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.


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.
