Try These Six Game Themed Cocktails at your New Year's Party

They're painfully pun filled but delightfully booze filled.

Do you love videogames? Do you love drinking? Now you can do both! Okay, you could always drink while playing videogames but these game themed cocktails are still pretty sweet.

The Guardian UK put together a list of game themed cocktails courtesy of bartender James Dance and they're definitely good to go for your next party. They're all themed around the big games of 2011, both in ingredients and appearance.

The coolest among them are the 'Portal 2' themed orange and blue drinks and "Elderflower Scrolls: Skyyrum" which is themed completely around 'Skyrim' puns. You've got to hand it to them for that one.

If you're looking for flashy though, you'll want to go with "Uncharted 3: Drinks Deception." It's a drink that includes Goldschlager, ginger beer, overproof rum and - wait for it - fire. Light the shot, drop it into your ginger beer and drink. We're going to advise that this is a drink you make at the beginning of the night, what with the fire and all.
