This week is the Extra Life marathon extravaganza and that means it’s time to incite your donations to my Extra Life campaign with promises of terrible drinks. Much like every year, I’ve themed the drinks based on the game I will play and this year that is Halo.

However, considering that raising $11,306.35 will make me dye my hair like Guy Fieri, we are gonna spice things up. I’ll be having my own drive into Flavor Town by doing a bit of Hot Ones (which Guy was on). The drinks occur when we hit monetary milestones and the spicy wings will hit based upon the number of unique donors during the marathon.

The (Terrible) Booze

$9,915: Plasma Grenade

This drink will be a reverse bomb (here’s an example). Unlike the rest of the drinks, I didn’t have a “base” drink to make awful. I just thought: blue, fizzy, BOOM.

  • Shot:
    • Hypnotic
    • Top layer of Absinthe
    • Flipped upside down, resting on bottom of a whiskey tumbler.
  • Sprite poured over the shot glass.
  • Pull shot glass, consume

$10,669: The Needler

This will be a different type of reverse bomb. Instead of pulling the shot glass, consuming the drink will slowly leak the shot, resulting in multiple instances of delayed pain. This drink is loosely based of a, I kid you not on this name, Purple Starfucker (scroll down to #12).

  • Shot:
    • Blue Curaçao
    • Top Layer of Everclear
    • Drops of Hot Sauce
    • Flipped upside down, resting on bottom of a pint glass
  • Pint glass of Big Red
  • Ideally, as I drink, the shot leaks into the mixer, creating a purple stream, complete with delayed hot sauce bursts.

$10,700.67: The Flood

Based on the Zombie Shot, except mixed like I have a death wish.

  • Mixed in Shaker:
    • 1 oz Dark Rum
    • 1 oz White Rum
    • 1 oz Brandy (flavored if I can find it)
    • 2 oz Mt. Dew (because that’s like pineapple & passion fruit combined…right?)
  • Pour in shot glass, top with 151, splash of Grenadine, light on fire, regret decisions

$11,306.35: Activate Halo

Based off of Adios Motherfucker, which is all too aptly named.

  • 1 oz vodka
  • .5 oz rum (gonna make it 151)
  • .5 oz Everclear (because I don’t want to buy gin)
  • 1 oz tequila blanco
  • 1 oz Blue Curaço
  • 2 oz Sweet & Sour Mix
  • 1 oz Sprite
  • Poured in glass, consumed with regret

The Spice

Reminder, this is for amount of unique donors. Grab a bunch of a friends and toss in a dollar. Sauces are added to a Frank’s base and each wing will get an extra dab.
