Gotta Drink 'Em All! Cocktails for #029 Nidoran through #038 Ninetales

#031 Nidoqueen

As Nidorina evolves into Nidoqueen, she not only becomes a true powerhouse of a Pokemon, but gains the ability to use powerful ground-based attacks like Earthquake, along with the devastating one-hit KO move Fissure.

To adequately represent these powerful attacks, we're not only going to swap the vodka for whiskey, but we're going to add an earthy aroma to the drink by shaving some cloves into it. One or two should be enough, simply grate them into the drink until the aroma hits your nose. Like the Pokemon it's based on, this drink hits hard, and its flavors pull no punches.


In a rocks glass, muddle a handful of blackberries. Add ice, 1.5 oz whiskey, and .75oz sweet vermouth. Cover with soda, and using a microplane or grater, shave a clove or two into the drink.
