"No matter where you go, there you are."


I made a Black Yukon Sucker Punch from Twin Peaks

We have just had season 3 of Twin Peaks, but way back in the fifth episode of the second season Agent Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) tried the Black Yukon Sucker Punch.

Why am I telling you this? Well, 31Dover got in touch to share their Fictional Drinks Top Trumps. You can see the cards at the bottom of the post. Here is what they had to say about that.

Countless works of fiction have incorporated the existence of alcoholic beverages into their stories. Whether it’s in the form of a beer, cocktail or crazy intergalactic space ale, booze has always served to flesh out a world and create an immersive setting that the audience can understand and relate to.

More importantly, fictional drinks have helped to shape some of our most beloved fictional characters. James Bond (Vesper), Tyrion Lannister (Westerosi Wine), and Homer Simpson (Duff Beer) are just a few examples of seasoned imbibers that we couldn’t – or wouldn’t want to – imagine without their favourite beverage in hand.

However, there’s always been one big issue facing fictional drinks… They’re fictional. The result of writers raiding the imaginary liquor cabinets of their minds. Although we desperately want to try some of these weird and wonderful tipples we fall at the very first hurdle, their existence (or lack thereof).

In an effort to bring a selection of these fictional beverages within the confines of reality, we decided to delve a little deeper into their stories, creating some fantastic Top Trump-esque cards for your enjoyment.

They asked if I fancied making one of the drinks. Obviously, I said yes and went for the Black Yukon Sucker Punch. They very kindly sent over a bottle of bourbon and a bottle of Blue Curaçao. Getting the other ingredients together, I followed the instructions put together by Cocktail Chemistry and this was the result.

While it looked a bit odd with the blue topping it was a damn fine drink and surprisingly tasty. I recommend giving it a try as it was fun to put together, but as always make sure you drink responsibly.

Thanks to 31Dover for the booze and you can check out the Fictional Drinks Top Trumps below. What other drinks would you include?
