A New Geek Drink - The Green Arrow!

I got inspired to try mixing a few things yesterday evening after being introduced to The Drunken Moogle. And somewhere along the line, I made this.

I elected to name this The Green Arrow.

Why? Three reasons.

1. It is a dark, forest green color once mixed properly.
2. It is sharp shot. *rimshot*
3. Because Oliver Queen deserves to have a drink named after him too!

Seriously. I did some research on-line and discovered that there are five drinks called a Green Lantern, one drink called a Poison Ivy and at least two drinks called a Swamp Thing while discussing what to call it with a friend on Facebook. Give the archer his due!


1 oz. Orange Juice
1 oz. Jack Daniels
1 oz. Peach Schnapps
1 oz. Blue Curacao

Pour into shot glass in equal amounts. Stir. Severed straight.


  1. I rarely talkg about roleplaying with the non-roleplaying people, but I feel the need to share this collection of drinks I assembled for a night's gaming. The Green Arrow fits in perfectly.
    And I might well use it for a later post if I may?

  2. You may.
    It's ironic - I was trying to find a Black Canary recipe too after deciding what to name this one and couldn't find one. I was going to make my own using Black Velvet as a baseline.
    And when did I ever give the impression I'm a non-roleplaying person? I know I've written about Silver Age Sentinels vs. Mutants and Masterminds on here at least once.

  3. And the bar in your post makes me chuckle because I came up with The Green Arrow by modifying one recipe for the infamous Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster.
    Maybe I should get some Green Curacao for next time?

  4. ... Oh Honey No.
    Though part of me wants to suggest ... goldshlager in a black Canary.. though.. perhaps something involving champagne... hrmmmm

  5. Like I said above - Black Velvet (champagne and stout) but without the stout. Maybe black vodka?
    Also... why the protest over my drink being a Green Arrow? Because if you're going to say it's too fruity, you should see the Green Lantern recipes.
