Blasphemous Cocktails

A group of friends that I have known since childhood have always gone out drinking with me on Friday nights. We play role playing games and make all kinds of drinks. During a conversation at GenCon Indy 2012 at the Marriott bar, while quite drunk, came the idea of a game book that was really a recipe book of cocktails. Somewhere along the line it became a conversation about Lovecraft and horror/pulp writers and how alcohol and drugs may have affected their stories. I went home and thought about things and it all came together. Then I hooked up with several bartender friends and showed them my work. They tried the cocktails out and gave me feedback.  In the end I have come up with a book of fabulous drinks that would be a great addition to any party. 

The book shall include drinking rules for Dungeons and Dragons d20 and Savage Worlds.  Now you will be able to have an Innsmouth Ice tea at the same time as your character drinks one and experience the life that he is living at the same time as you role play the situation.

So now is your chance to help make this dream come true. Help me to bring this book to life and you will discover that your parties and games  will take on a life of their own as people indulge in some of the most extraordinary beverages they have ever tasted. 

We are asking for $2500 to cover the cost of printing, and ingredients for testing all of the drinks prior to print. We have a world class mixologist to prepare our recipes and a dozen taste testers to try them out.

If you have cocktails that you have designed and want to add to our book then please contact us and we will consider your recipe. If we add it you will get listed as the creator of said drink in the book. 

Here are a few examples of what you may find within:

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Innsmouth Ice tea  

 .5 ounces vodka  

.5 ounces gin

.5 ounces white rum  

.5 ounces tequila  

.5 ounces Southern Comfort® peach liqueur

splash of grenadine syrup  

2 ounces Favorite Cola  

2 ounces sweet and sour mix

 Add all ingredients (except Cola) to a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice cubes. Shake well and strain into glass filled with ice cubes. Top with Cola, stir lightly and serve.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Miskatonic Lemonade  

4 ounces Chivas Regal® Scotch

1 tsp honey  

1 tsp sugar

2 ounces fresh lemon juice  

Pour the Scotch into a tall glass half-filled with ice cubes. Add the honey and sugar. Add the juice from one whole lemon, saving a slice or two for garnish. Stir and serve.  

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Yugothian Brain Drain  

1 ounces green creme de menthe  

1 ounces creme de cacao  

6 ounces milk  

3 tsp chocolate syrup  

Combine alcohol and milk in glass. Add chocolate syrup and stir until it turns a green/brown color. Optionally, you can replace the milk with vanilla ice cream but you will have to blend the drink into a smooth creamy consistency. Serve with a straw.

Stretch Goals

****$5,000  ACHIEVED ****

If we make it to $5000 we will create a set of bar coasters and send a set of four coasters to everyone who pledged at the Mythos level or greater.

****$10,000  ACHIEVED ****

If we make it to $10000 we will create a set of shot glasses that shall be inspired by HP Lovecraft and added to all pledges at the Mythos level or greater.

$20,000

If we make $20000 We shall host an event at GenCon INDY 2013 where you will be able to meet us and try out a vast variety of the cocktails listed in the book. You of course will have to get to Gen Con on your own and provide your own lodging but we shall be there and all backers will get an invite to join us. I feel that GenCon is where this idea started and it is the best place to return to and share the idea with the world.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge with this project is the alcohol itself. We want to create drinks that are fun and delicious while remaining responsible. If you partake in this project please don't drink and drive. Please limit your consumption to your own body's limitations and always have a designated driver. We all love to party but we must first remain safe.

FAQ

  • Many of the recipes are completely original creations of the author, some are classics with my personal twist, and others are classic recipes that fit the feel and theme of the book (horror/pulp/prohibition). There are well over 100 recipes within and with late submissions that number is growing. Do you have a cool recipe you think should be in the book. Send it to me and if I like it, I shall add it it to the collection and list you as the source.

    Last updated:
  • A hard copy is a physical copy. It does not mean a hard cover copy. The book will be printed softbound in both perfect binding and spiral binding. Backers will get to choose which binding method they prefer. While perfect binding may look better on the shelf, the spiral binding seems better on the table when preparing the cocktails.

    Last updated:
  • When calculating costs for shipping I made the mistake of looking at US shipping costs and not the costs for sending to place like the UK and New Zealand. As such I under priced the shipping by about seven dollars for most international locations. This means that whatever level you are pledging at you should add $12 not $5 to cover shipping. Thank-you
