#069 Bellsprout

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 oz. Rye Whiskey
1/4 oz. ROOT Art in the Age
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/4 oz. Maple Syrup
1/4 oz. Sour Apple Liqueur

Add all the ingredients to a mixing tin except the apple liqueur. Shake well with ice. Strain into a shooter glass or a whiskey tasting glass. Lightly drizzle the apple liqueur into the glass. It should form a light green layer at the bottom of the glass.

This drink doesn't actually have much inspiration other than the taste preferences of a good friend of mine. I knew I wanted to use ROOT for the classic flower / root Pokemon. Bellsprout is one of the most prevalent background Pokemon in the show that wasn't actually captured by one of the main characters. Technically James did come into a possession of a Victreebel as a Weepinbell offscreen. 

"Bellsprout's thin and flexible body lets it bend and sway to avoid any attack, however strong it may be. From its mouth, this Pokémon spits a corrosive fluid that melts even iron."
