Mmm, I gotta say this list of pony-based cocktails is quite intriguing. Several of these cocktails are a little silly (and I'm not just talking about the Derpy), but I like the Luna and the Rarity (hmm, quite appropriate, and they're among my favorite MLP:FiM characters to boot):

  • Rarity — White Cosmopolitan: 1¼ oz vodka, ¾ oz Cointreau, 3 oz white cranberry juice, ½ oz lime juice. Shake well and serve in a martini glass with three blueberries as a garnish.

  • Luna — Sparkling Blue Cosmo[politan]: 1¼ oz vodka, ¾ oz blue curaçao, ½ oz lime juice. Shake and strain into a martini glass. Top with champagne, garnish with a lime wedge to represent the half moon.

I should find a bar with a skilled bartender who's willing to try new things (seeing as how most bartenders will be unlikely to have heard of pony-based drinks). :)

(Hat tip to EqD, BTW.)

I'd want to do that Rarity cosmopolitan now. I just stocked our bar for Sex on the Beaches, so I have the vodka and our kitchen normally has lime juice. Sadly, I don't think I could justify going out to get Cointreau and I only have red cranberry juice.

Ye gads though, I wanna try the Pinkie Pie. It would either be awesome or disgusting. But I want to drink it while doing the Pinkie Pie one man band thingy.

The Pinkie Pie sounds interesting, that's for sure. :) I'm a little alarmed by the nutmeg, but it might make for an interesting counterflavor (hmm, I hope that's a word). Drinking it while doing that one man band thing would be fun, too.

The Twilight Sparkle sounds interesting, too. The Trixie, OTOH, I think I'll stay away from. :) (And I think it's just a little unfair — Trixie isn't that much of a phony, now is she.)

I could probably try making the Rarity and Luna myself some time. I've got martini glasses and a shaker, and I already have a bottle of vodka and even a bottle of sparkling wine (no genuine champagne, but then Sekt should be fine)... mmm. All I'd need would be someone to drink with. :)

If it didn't cost money to buy an airline ticket and then didn't take the better portion of a day to get to Germany, I'd come out to drink pony drinks with you.

Besides, I need to practice my German while intoxicated ;)

Maybe next summer? Tim said after he graduates, I can take a summer trip to Germany, especially since I can't do the Year in Munich that WSU offers.
