Drunkality: #1

Sadly I cannot find the rest of the Mortal Kombat Tag. It’s all a big mess…so what now?



It has been some time since I have done a booze-related post. I do plan on getting into more horror-themed discussions later on, but this has been LONG overdue.

DRUNKALITY! will be my new Mortal Kombat-themed drink series, because everyone has Mortal Kombat parties involving alcohol, right? Take a shot every time one of the Cage family makes a lame joke? Every time Scorpion does something grim-dark? Every time Raiden progressively becomes the worst person ever? You’d be trashed in a few minutes!

So let’s begin with the most popular character in the series: Mr. Hanzo Hasashi, also known as Scorpion.


I’m not really a fan of the character, but I can understand why he is so popular. I mean, a rope-spear wielding ninja Ghost Rider with 100% less Nicholas Cage. I did enjoy the character development he received in the alternate timeline as he became something more than just “emo flame zombie ninja”, and served as a teacher to Takeda. It was honestly great to see him regain his humanity, and, although I am skeptical on the success of the series without one of its major villains, (haha, nobody dies in MK), it was good to see him finally get his revenge.

Scorpion is most famous for being on fire and having attacks relating to fire. I’m someone who has crafted some fiery beverages in her day, I welcomed this challenge. As a bit of a note, the Ninjas of this series will be represented as shots so that if desired, the drinks can be consumed in rapid succession. I am not kidding when I say that this is the “meanest” spicy drink I have made as it has nothing to cool down the fire, making it especially well paired with the upcoming Sub-Zero shot.

Scorpion Shot

Fill a shot glass half full with Fireball whiskey and then top off with Cinnamon Schnapps. Add a dash (or a few) of Sriracha sauce depending on how masochistic you are. Enjoy.
