 Bending Drinks #1 Avatar: The Last Airbender

Spread the love

Here we go, folks! I’ve been putting together the most extensive list of every Bending drink made at AFK. That’s right! Every version I could find is in that list, and then some! You might not know this, but we made a lot of AtLAB and Korra drinks.

First, we’re going to go with the classic series drinks. Our first menu was in the hype leading up to Legend of Korra. From April of 2012 we have our AtLAB classics drinks from the Day of Black Sun theme menu!

Air Bender DoBS Version (16 oz glass /w ice)

  • 1 oz Citron Vodka
  • 1 oz Passion Fruit rum
  • Fill Sprite

Fire Bender DoBS Version (16 oz glass /w ice)

  • 1/2 oz Grenadine
  • 2 oz Bacardi Dragonberry
  • Fill Cranberry Juice & Fanta

Earth Bender DoBS Version (16 oz glass /w ice)

  • 1 oz Kapali
  • 1 oz Clear Chocolate Liqueur
  • 1 oz Green Creme De Menthe
  • Fill Half & Half
  • Float Trader Vic’s Dark Rum

Water Bender DoBS Version (16 oz glass /w ice)

  • 1 oz Blue Vanilla Simple Syrup
  • 1 oz Cherry Vodka
  • 1 oz Coconut Rum
  • Fill Bawls Cherry

Hailing from 2017, the AtLAB Classic Menu we called Avatar Day, I wanted to remake the classic version of the menu for some regulars who had asked very nicely. I hadn’t recovered the DoBS menu at that point, so I had to go from a print menu I had. I’m sure you’re all aware I was very annoying about telling you what’s in a drink without actually telling you anything useful. This menu ended up including a few drinks from the Korra Menus (yes, we had a lot of Korra, *deal with it glasses*) because the mods were popular.

  • 1 oz Rumplemintz
  • 1 oz Bols Chocolate Liqueur
  • Fill Half & Half

Even at the end of AFK we had another set of Classic ATlaB drinks. These 2020 Apocalypse versions known far and wide as the Ember Island Players. These created as to-go summer fun Mojito variations with little relation to the drinks they’re based on. (There were also 2020 versions of the Korra drinks, but you’ll get those in the next post.)

All of these drinks are Mojito modifications. To make the drink, you want to muddle the mint with the lime first before adding anything else. We used Topo Chico if you ordered these in-house and not to-go. They rocked the deck.

Air Bender Ember Island Players Version (Jar)

  • Seven mint leaves
  • 2-3 lime wedges
  • 2.5 oz Rum
  • Fill Lemonade & Soda Water

Fire Bender Ember Island Players Version (Jar)

  • Seven mint leaves
  • 2-3 lime wedges
  • 1.5 oz Rum
  • 1 oz Bols Strawberry
  • 1 oz Strawberry Syrup
  • Fill Soda Water

Earth Bender Ember Island Players Version (Jar)

  • Seven mint leaves
  • 2-3 lime wedges
  • 1.5 oz Rum
  • 1 oz Apple Sour
  • 1 oz Sour Apple Syrup
  • Fill Soda

Water Bender Ember Island Players Version (Jar)

  • Seven mint leaves
  • 2-3 lime wedges
  • 2.5 oz Rum
  • 1.5 oz Blue Curacao Syrup
  • Fill Soda

And the last for this post, ad modifications of the Ember Island Player drinks, the All-Ages-Pass versions. These are all Non-Alcoholic. You’re going to prepare them the same as the booze-filled versions. Also note, you can if you go to a bar/coffee shop supply place (ie, whatever Cash & Carry has changed their name to this month, I think it’s US Chef’s Store), you can find all of these syrups and sugar-free versions of most of them to use in any variation.

Air Bender All-Ages-Pass version (to-go cup)

  • Seven mint leaves
  • 2-3 lime wedges
  • 1 oz Lemon Syrup
  • Fill Lemonade & Soda Water

Fire Bender All-Ages-Pass version (to-go cup)

  • Seven mint leaves
  • 2-3 lime wedges
  • 1 oz Finest Call Strawberry
  • 1 oz Strawberry Syrup
  • Fill Soda Water

Earth Bender All-Ages-Pass version (to-go cup)

  • Seven mint leaves
  • 2-3 lime wedges
  • 2 oz Sour Apple Syrup
  • 1 oz Melon Syrup
  • Fill Soda

Water Bender All-Ages-Pass version (to-go cup)

  • Seven mint leaves
  • 2-3 lime wedges
  • 2 oz Blue Curacao Syrup
  • 1 oz Non-Alcoholic Tripple Sec (or clear orange syrup)
  • Fill Soda

I have the Insane list of Korra drinks set up for my next huge post. Weeeeee! There should be 3 to 4 of these in total including some updated Afterlife versions, and non-bender version. Also before you post it, yes posting back gifs of Bender B Rodriguez is always funny.
