Gotta Drink 'Em All! Cocktails for #019 Rattata through #028 Sandslash

#025 Pikachu

We knew you'd be expecting something special for Pokemon's most popular character, and we've delivered. The Pikachu is an easy, refreshing, and sweet drink that can easily scale into a party-sized pitcher for those of you who are looking to entertain. That said, first, prepare your garnishes-- just cut a lemon peel into a lightning bolt pattern and set aside a couple of cherries. Then, prepare some ginger simple syrup by simmering a cup each of water and sugar, then adding that to a blender along with a thumb-sized hunk of peeled ginger. Blend, strain, and set aside. 

Then all you have to do is snag a can of San Pellegrino lemon spritzer and some vodka, then you've pretty much got all you need, besides a thunderbolt of fresh lemon juice. Arrange the garnishes in a coupe glass -- the tail along the rim, and the cherry cheeks side-by-side in the bottom, and enjoy.


In a cocktail shaker, add 1.5 oz vodka, 1.5 oz San Pellegrino lemon spritzer, and .33 oz (about a half pony) each of ginger simple syrup and lemon juice. Shake and pour into a coupe or martini glass. Arrange the lemon peel tail and maraschino cherry cheeks as shown and serve.
