The Metroid was on one of the last theme menus we ever got to do. It joined the new and final printing of the drink menu in February of 2020. In March, it would for the last time it made for a customer. The photo above that is my banner on Patreon. I took this photo ‎Friday, ‎February ‎28, 2020, in a large batch of “New drinks for 2020!” shots I was setting up to promote through March. Not all of them got posted. It was one of the final things I did that was normal in 2020, and the drink photo and drink have come to mean something strange and undefinable to me over the last year.

ANYWAY… Here is the recipe for the Metroid.

Metroid (wine glass /w light ice)

  • 1/2 oz Cherry vodka
  • 1/2 oz Orange vodka
  • 1/2 oz herbal gin
  • 1/2 oz silver rum
  • 1/2 oz Midori
  • Pineapple Juice fill
  • Garnish with three cherries and gummy worms

One thought on “ The Last Drinks: Metroid”
  1. Hey, I hope that you’re going to keep posting to the blog. I moved away from Everett in 2019 and I really missed being able to go and hang out at AFK. I was really sad to hear that it was closing.

    I’ve been enjoying reading the cocktail recipes, which is ironic considering I don’t drink. One of the things that I missed the most about moving away from Everett and AFK was my favorite drink, the Hate Spren. I’ve tried a couple times to figure out the proportions, but I’ve never been able to get it quite right. I don’t suppose you’d be willing to give me a clue as to how to mix it?

    I hope that AFK returns when the world goes back to normal.
