To Twist your week, this delightfully strong libation comes courtesy of VConThe God of Mischief .

  • 1/2 oz Blavod black vodka
  • 1/2 oz blue curacao
  • 1/2 oz apple sours
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 1/2 oz mead
  • 1/2 oz cinnamon schnapps
  • Crushed ice (optional)

Take a prepared martini glass and add the Blavod. If you’d like to use the ice, add it now. Add the rest of the ingredients and either stir or enjoy as-is!

And, of course, even though I’m being a girl about it, I have to share this to Garnish your week properly:


The Grid will drop every first Wednesday of the month (potentially more if you all like!). So, again, make sure you’re subscribed to our YouTube channel!

So, until next week, geek on!
