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

#034 Nidoking

The final evolution of the male Nidoran, and one of Giovanni's favorite Pokemon alongside Nidoqueen and Rhydon, Nidoking also has the ability to use devastating ground-type moves-- not to mention the fact that he can also use the one-hit KO move Fissure.

By now you know where we're going with this. To add earthiness and body, swap vodka for whiskey, and shave one or two cloves into the drink until it becomes aromatic. Hey, those cloves kinda look like horns, don't they? Maybe pretend they're Nidoking horns when you grind them into the drink.

Wait.

Don't.

Don't do that thing.

Wow. That got dark.

TL;DR VERSION

In a rocks glass, muddle a handful of raspberries. 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.
