I get to keep making drink guides and cocktails thanks to the folks at my Patreon! If you’d like to support just click the link below.Become a Patron!
Last week I made some hype drinks inspired by 2077. You can check them out here. Now that the games out, I’ve noticed three drinks from the opening and act 1 that are directly part of the game. So, of course, I want to make them! This recipe guide may contain some spoilers, so please don’t read on if you care about that kind of stuff.
The first drink we’re going to check out is the Jackie Welles! He pretty much described a Moscow Mule, with as he puts it, “a splash of love.” I decided to go with a tiny bit of Grenadine and some Kinky Pink for the “splash of love.” The rest is a pretty standard Mule. When you get this drink at Afterlife, the glass isn’t a Copper Cup, so I’m using something that looks like the one the in-game cocktail is served inside.
Jackie Welles (Bucket Glass /w light ice)
- 1 1/2 oz Vodka
- 1/2 oz Kinky Pink (Dash of love)
- 1/3 oz Grenadine (Help the dash of love stand out)
- 3 lime wedges
- Ginger Beer Fill (I used Cock & Bull)
When making this cocktail, put the Grenadine and Kinky Pink in before the ice. Add the ice, then Juice 2 of the lime over the ice. Lastly, pour the gingerbeer gently onto the ice, and it should layer perfectly. Garnish with the last lime, and enjoy!
Next is the Corpo drink. This shot is the drink you get if you chose the Corpo back story. Jackie says it’s a shot of Tequila, with Grenadine and lime. So that’s pretty much what I did.
The “To This” (double Shot Glass)
- 1 1/2 oz Silver Tequila
- 1/2 oz Grenadine
- 2 wedges of lime
When making this, pour the Tequila in first, then pour the Grenadine down the glass side by pressing the pour spout to the edge of the glass when you pour. Then squeeze one lime over the drink and garnish with the other.
If you’re like, “Hey Kayla, where is the Jonny Silverhand drink.” The internet has done the hell out of that one. Perhaps I’ll do my take on it later but for now, enjoy these two drinks from the game.
