The Inferi-tini

by Amber on November 23, 2010

For those of you living under an even bigger rock than I am, the new Harry Potter movie was just released. Which of course means that I needed to make a cocktail about it.

Ok, it’s not based on this movie. It’s based on the last one. I still haven’t seen the new movie.

Anyway. In Harry Potter 6, there was a lovely scene in a cave, where a full-fledged mob of Inferi (ie zombies) rose up out of their watery resting place to swarm Harry and drag him back into the (appropriately black) lake with them.

Sounds cocktail-worthy to me!

After a quick search on Amazon to find appropriately choking-hazard sized zombies to submerge in the beverage, we were in business. (And by “we” I mean the royal “we.” Jamye didn’t do much except talk to me on the phone while I obsessively googled “zombies” and “ghosts.”)

I went with a classic Martini this time. Simple. Elegant. Black.

Ok, the black part isn’t “classic.” But a touch of black food coloring makes it the perfect color for zombie (sorry, “Inferi”) infested waters.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present:

The Inferi-tini

The Inferi-tini

2 oz gin

1 oz vermouth

½ drop black food coloring  (no really. Go light on this stuff or you won’t be able to see the zombies. And what’s the point of that?)

garnish with mini-zombies


Warning: I wasn’t kidding about the choking hazard. Drink with care. And this particular cocktail is NOT recommended to be consumed on the later end of a night of libation.

Ok, I want one. & I wanna see those zombies! For some reason, all I could think of was the Halloween special of the Simpsons.

The PS3 is having it’s fair share of trobule. You just don’t see it as much because Sony deletes complaints from forums and as a rule they don’t publicly address their customers the way that Microsoft does. They are also harder to contact when issues come up, causing many to just throw in the towel.The developers find DVD space to small for the future of gaming was Sony’s expansion into their Blue Ray drives. The truth of the matter is that many games do not use the full DVD media. The problem that developers face is the limits of the hardware. At E3 2006, Sony used that reasoning and was embarrassed by the responses that a lot of studios gave when they stated that it was the hardware, not the media space.Game wise, the 360 s library of games is one of it’s strongest points. The number of exclusives and exclusive content is becoming unprecedented. Even though the PS3 is starting to get moving with software releases, the number if quality titles coming out is not staggering, most of them have even been out for the 360 for almost a year.As for it being a good choice, that is a personal choice that only you can make. There are some that love the PS3, and those that would laugh at you for buying it while telling you that it was dead in the water a month after it’s release. It is no better or worse technically than the 360. The only REAL issues to separate the two are the amount of games and the quality of online play. If the PS3 entertains you and gives you memorable gaming experiences, then it was a good choice.

Inferi-tini? Where’s the multi-layered? Where’s the spun sugar? Inventive name, but the drink leaves something to be desired creatively…

Inferi-tini! That looks…actually, I’m like, wow, zombies in translucent, spent motor oil. I didn’t even know that was possible. Which makes a success in my book for morbid cocktails — well done!
