This punch bowl drink is a doozy. Tink orders it during a sabacc game at a casino in Episode 10. It’s green and red and served in a gigantic glass and was a pain in the ass to make.

Why was it a pain in the ass to make?

A large punchbowl drink with a green liquid, ice cubes, and red candies.

The Green Extermination

Because none of us had glasses big enough to make this drink. I had to find a vase in the back of my closet and wash it about forty times before feeling safe about using it.

After that it was pretty easy. A ton of bright green apple schnapps, a bit of clear cinnamon schnapps, a glug of apple juice, a hearty pour of ginger ale, and then a smattering of red candies.

The Green Extermination and it’s candies

Our grocery store was out of both of our first two choices, Red Hots and Hot Tamales, but they did have some generic “hot cinnamon candy dots”. They worked perfectly… for about five minutes. Then their candy coating began to melt and started turning the old drink red.

As you can see, the red had started leaking

Because of that, we find it’s best to add the candies right before serving. The Official Tabletop Squadron Taste Testers (Nick and Hudson) found that in addition to the color change the flavor of the drink changed over time as well. It became slightly sweeter, and had more of a cinnamon bite. They both said they enjoyed this drink at all of it’s stages.

 

 

Green Extermination [serves 4-6, or 1 large Gigoran] 

12 ounces green-colored pucker sour apple schnapps
4 ounces clear cinnamon schnapps (such as Goldschläger)
8 ounces apple juice
Ginger ale
Cinnamon red hot candies

In a large punch bowl or vase combine both schnapps, and apple juice. Fill with ice, and then add the ginger ale until the container is full. Toss a handful of the red candies on top.

Serve immediately.

 

 

Simple syrups are a quick and easy way to add sweetness to cocktails. Regular, granulated sugar doesn’t dissolve well in cold liquid, and more often than not you’ll end up with a grainy drink. By creating a pre-dissolved sugar syrup you can add sugar to your cocktail without worry. 

The following are basic syrups that will appear in multiple of our recipes. They are easy to halve or double.

Keep these syrups in airtight containers and in the refrigerator. They will last at least a month.

You can see our current collection of syrups. From left to right: Ginger Mint, Honey, Demerara, Cinnamon, Vanilla, Simple, Raspberry.
