First ordered in Episode 27 the Supernova packs a punch. It’s a deliciously strong combination of gin, green chartreuse, Campari, and vermouth, and has a beautiful rust-orange color.

The Supernova

Look at that color!

Sweet vermouth is also known as rosso (“red” in Italian) or rouge (“red” in French) vermouth due to its red color. Like its name suggests it brings some sweetness to the drink, preventing it from tasting like pure alcohol.

Green Chartreuse is a beautiful, naturally green liqueur made with over a hundred different botanicals. It’s hard to replicate given its unique flavor, but given its price (often $50-60 a bottle) if you wish to substitute it try a 50/50 mix of elderflower liqueur and absinthe or Jägermeister. It brings some lovely floral and herby notes to this drink and blends wonderfully with the gin.

Campari has a very bitter citrus flavor that is quite similar to grapefruit. It has a beautiful red color and adds a ton of depth to this drink.

Combine in a shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with lemon peel.

The Falling Star first appeared in Prologue 1 when Felton Mox orders one for Karma. It’s clear, very strong, and served with a cherry. Our version of the drink features pisco (a type of brandy made in Peru and Chile) with dry vermouth and bitters for depth, a bit of simple syrup to cut the bitterness, and, of course, a cherry. This drink is strong and definitely made for sipping.

Trivia Time: the name “Falling Star” also shows up in Prologue 2, but it’s given the same description as the Sparkling Star. We’re not saying our wonderful game master and Tabletop Leader made a mistake, but… wait… yes we are.



While they’re much more expensive than grocery store ‘maraschino’ cherries, we highly recommend grabbing a jar of Luxardo brand maraschinos. The difference between the two is night and day. The Luxardo cherries are slightly sour, not as cloyingly sweet, and taste like real cherries.
