I came to the other Gears pretty late so after trying out the MP and getting almost zero fun out of it I moved on, the getting killed a lot did not bother me in the slightest it just never clicked. I really want to like it as it looks a lot of fun but I just think the barrier is a little high for me these days as I can't commit hours to getting good at it.

Given that you're asking for obscure drinks rather than searching for flavor, I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that you are not a sophisticated drinker. Presumably, your peers are on a similar level. As such, just combine ingredients and make up a pretentious/wacky name. Those who place a premium on the obscurity of their libations tend not to notice; they just want to get drunk while feeling hip.

HAHA chill out man, it's a party and making cocktails is fun

You're in luck: their newest grand strategy game, Sengoku, is extremely "streamlined" compared to their other titles. It will take a while to get into it, especially if you have never touched a grand strategy game before, but it is a cake walk compared to something like Crusader Kings ( example: CS has no victory conditions laid out, whereas Sengoku does).

Edit: Oops, kind of phased out the part about the steam sale. Since Sengoku isn't on there, I would go with Europa Universallis III: Complete.

Funny thing, they just added it today at 20% off.

Shhhh, don't talk about games discounted on steam. Do you not know it just compels people like me to buy stuff play it for about 10 minutes then never look at it again

If you and your friends are looking for something a little sweet, allow me to introduce The Stiletto:

  • 1.5 oz amaretto
  • 1.5 oz bourbon
  • squeeze of one half lime

Shake with ice, strain over ice in rocks glass. Garnish with lime wheel.

Wish this company were named Gin Media instead of Whiskey? Then try The Journalist:

  • 2 ounces gin
  • 1/2 ounce dry vermouth
  • 1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
  • 2 dashes fresh lemon juice
  • 2 dashes curacao
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters

Shake with ice, strain into chilled cocktail glass.

Lastly, even though it's September it's not too late for the Caribbean treat known as the Anejo Highball:

  • 1 1/2 oz Anejo Rum
  • 1/2 oz orange curacao
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • 2 dashes Angostura Bitters
  • top with ginger beer

Fill highball with ice, build drink in order above in glass, give it a quick stir.

Hell yes I'm liking the Gin Media :) none of my friends would get this though, but they would be drink and thats what counts!

get an Old Fashioned

Its complex to make so its kind of a fun ritual

muddle (see squish with a spoon) orange and cherry at bottom of glass

add sugar

bitters (kind of like the spicy part of rootbeer distilled)

Ice

Whiskey

splash tonic

garnish Cherry

Its fun to say/make and tastes like rootbeer.

Old Fashioned has been one of my favourite drinks over the past couple of years, after watching Mad Men. I've done it before but it is tempting to do it again
