Hello! So I've been slowly working on my little tiki bar during lockdown. The other night I made a Painkiller, then put a little Venom Snake figure next to it and took a picture. Painkiller - Phantom Pain... get it?

So I started thinking about a Phantom Painkiller drink, and how to make a MGS inspired tiki cocktail. Here's what I've got so far:

There's a cocktail called a Phantom, which uses Licor 43. I don't know if Licor 43 is used in a lot of tiki drinks, and I've never had it, but it claims to be made with "43 herbs, fruits, and spices, including vanilla and citrus" which sounds reasonably tiki to me.

Could it be as simple as adding Licor 43 to my Painkiller recipe? Who knows? I'll have to try it and find out. Posting this in case anyone is interested, or has some ideas for any other MGS tiki drinks. Or drinks in general. Let's drink

I've only started messing around with cocktails for a few years now and I typically fall on the non-tiki side of things (I have some rums but can't be bothered to have all those juices around when I'm usually leaning away from the fruity), so I'm not familiar with any of the drinks and liquor you mentioned above. Naturally, Google informed me a bit, and apparently Licor 43's very vanilla-forward, followed behind by some fruity and some cinnamon. This sounds weird in the Painkiller recipes I looked up, like the whole flavor would just get muddy in the end? One site did suggest adding the 43 to a screwdriver, so maybe it's not out of the question.

But hey, if you have the ingredients, it's always worth a shot! I wouldn't have found out a mule using Kahlua is a disgusting idea if I didn't go for it!

Please please please turn this into a series! I am 100% down with you creating a series in which you attempt to create odd cocktails from video games and/or video game adjacent properties.

I love this idea! Please keep making and sharing cool cocktails on here, as I am just getting into cocktails and find this to be potentially motivating to experiment.

Some drink with an egg in it could by a reference to the sunny side up egg recipe from MGS4. I would never touch a drink with a raw egg in it mind you, but it’s an idea. I think you put one in a Red Eye? (Possible Raiden reference)

I few years back, I bought this semi-insulated Coconut drinking cup from Amazon. The inner part under the top is white too.

Its very simple and very tough. Sadly, the don't make them anymore, they sell online used for twice as much.

Made a Brave Bull recently, like a Black Russian but you switch the vodka with tequila blanco. I kinda like it.
