#003 Venusaur

This is a part of an ongoing project I'm working on to make a Pokemon cocktails for each and every Pokemon. I'm starting with just generation one and we'll see how the response is. 151 drinks is a tall order, but people have done crazier things. If I succeed I will most likely publish an eBook or possibly hard copy collections of each drink. Give them a try and let me know what you think. 

1 1/2 oz. Applejack
1 oz. Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz. Melon Liqueur
1/4 oz. Blue Curacao
1/4 oz. Lime Juice
1 1/2 oz. Lemon Lime soda

Add all the ingredients aside from the soda to a mixing tin with ice. Shake until well chilled. Strain into a decorative specialty hurricane or tulip glass. Top with the soda to fill. Garnish with a few mint leaves and a lime wedge.

This cocktail was derived very simply from the middle evolution, Ivysaur. We stretched it a bit and found that it actually makes a very drinkable tall drink. It reminds me of an old favorite, the Liquid Marijuana. Midori, blue curacao, pineapple, with some lemon and lime. If you were to add a few bits of rum to that and you'd have a popular club drink. I opted for apple brandy as I feel it's underutilized in tall drinks and I thought that it better represented Venusaur. The seed Pokemon matches well with apple flavors wouldn't you say? Remember our friend John Chapman, often called Johnny Appleseed. 

"Venusaur, the Seed Pokémon. Venusaur uses its large petals to capture sunlight and transform it into energy."
