From July's OXM, these drinks were put together by Adam Wyatt-Jones of the Graphic Cocktail Bar in Soho,

London. I added a few details, namely describing what some of the brand-name spirits are in case you don't
have a lot of dough to blow:

FLAMING HUNTER (inspired by Left 4 Dead)

Add into a cocktail shaker the following: 1.5 ounces of Maker's Mark bourbon whiskey, 1/3 ounce Cherry
Heering (Danish cherry liqueur), 1/3 ounce Contra, and a dash of Angostura (bitters). Shake the contents
well, then pour into a small glass and drop in one or two cherries to sit in the bottom of the glass.

BOOMER BILE (Left 4 Dead)

Slice up five pieces of cucumber and throw them into a glass half-filled with ice, then crush the lot with a
pestle. Pour 1.5 ounces of gin, 1.5 ounces of vodka, a dash of lemon juice and Worcester sauce, and 3
ounces ofelderflower cordial into a shaker. Now shake until mixed and pour into the glass.

POISON ARROW (inspired by Lord of the Rings: Conquest)

Fill up a shot glass with lime cordial and add a dash of Grenadine to the top. Now very slowly
pour Baileys(Irish cream liqueur) into the center of the shot glass until it hits the bottom of the shot. Take a
straw and slowly twirl it around so the Baileys twists around the tube. Retract the straw and serve.

BUM RUSH (inspired by Condemned 2: Bloodshot)

Run a lemon wedge around the rim of a cocktail glass, then cover with coarse salt. Crush a few ice cubes
into a cocktail shaker, then pour in 1.5 ounces Arita tequila, 2/3 ounce Triple Sec, and 2/3 ounce lime
juice, and drop in a couple of chili seeds. Shake and pour into the glass and attach one chili pepper onto
the side.

PLASMID (inspired by BioShock)

Fill a tall glass with ice and crush with a pestle, adding to the ice until it fills the glass three-quarters full. Grab
your cocktail shaker and pour in the following: 1 ounce Smirnoff vodka, 2/3 ounce Blue Curacao (citrus
liqueur), 1/3 ounce Myrtille (blueberry liqueur), and a dash of lemon juice. Now pour into the glass until you
fill it three-quarters full. Top the rest with champagne, then add fresh blueberries and blackberries.

SPINNING PILEDRIVER (inspired by Street Fighter IV)

Carve off a lemon skin in a spiral and wrap the skin around the inside of a glass, using ice cubes to prop up
the skin to the inside of the glass. Take your cocktail shaker and mix 1.3 ounces of cognac with 2/3
ounce lemon juice, and pour into the mixture. Now repeat with 1.5 ounces creme de peche and 1/2
ounce creme d'apricot, then pour the mixture slowly into the glass via the top of the spiral.
