Final Fantasy Night!

May 9, 2008 | Scrollbar @ IT University of Copenhagen

banner

Scrollbar hosts the official weekly Fredagbar (Friday Bar) of IT University of Copenhagen. A number of us study games in the "Media, Technology, and Games" Masters program. In February, we made a Mario Theme Night, so the next step was of course to take the famous video game franchise, which in our opinion is Final Fantasy. So this 9th of May we hosted a big Final Fantasy Night. Not only did we decorate the bar and create unique cocktails, but the bartenders were dressed up like Final Fantasy characters.

We pooled our vast knowledge of mixing and alcohols (this is Denmark, after all) to craft fifteen unique Final Fantasy-theme drinks/shooters.

The three most popular cocktails was the Waltz on the Moon, the Summoner Yuna, and the Aerith. But all our recipes were very well-received. We encourage you to give them a try - but please credit us if you do!

(Note: "cl" stands for centiliter. Two cl approximately equals one "shot")
