Finding a kick-ass drink to symbiotically enhance your gaming experience is now easy with Jim’s “Rocktails of Game.”

Coffee or tea sir? Perhaps an energy drink is your favourite gaming juice ma’am? Or are you the kind of person who likes something with a bit more kick? If you are the latter then you have come to the right place. Here are Jim’s picks, and creations, that have been selected as the top drinks for the hardcore gamer. Something to try over the weekend perhaps?

The Doom Slayer

The BFD for true Doom Slayers

No drink gets as brutal as this. A simple mix of 1/2 pint beer and 1/2 pint Vodka. Prove to the minions of hell who’s boss and a true hardcore gamer!


When it pours, it rains.

BloodRayne is a tipple that’s sure to appeal! Mix pomegranate juice, vodka, raspberry syrup and lemon in a cocktail shaker. Serve over ice. But for extra class drink it from “the skull of Beliar”

Origami Umami

A drink Mario would be proud of

50ml of Shiitake Mushroom infused Suntory Hakusha. A dash of maple syrup and a dash of Flamed Rum spritz. What better way to unfold after a day’s work in Paper Mario?

The Gun Slinger

A pure redemption

Chilled lager, a shot of blended Scotch, a shot of maple syrup and a lemon twist. This is the Shandy of a true cowboy.

The Sonic Blue

A layered drink with style

Layer a drink of Curaçao, lemonade and Vodka to achieve this wonderously fast drink. You could even add Grenadine at the base to imitate Sonic’s iconic shoes!

The Pym Particle

One that’s easy to Assemble

It is as easy as Pimm’s, lemonade and a handful of mint, cucumber and fruit. Give it a stir and then serve whilst you install Marvel’s Avengers!

Whatever your chosen tipple is I hope you play hard and game hard this bank holiday weekend!
