Pokémon: Popplio

The Popplio Cocktail
Playful, energetic, and bound evolve into the Dragon-crushing Fairy Type, could Poppilo the perfect starter Pokémon for you? This cocktail is delightfully refreshing and filled with a mix of interesting flavors. Sweet berries give way to a lingering hint of licorice, and this playful concoction will give you more than enough energy to carry out your role of class clown. Make it with or without alcohol!

Cocktail:
Chill Red Bull Blue Edition before hand. Absinthe liquor is now available at most liquor stores, minus the mind-bending effects which it's so well known for. Make your little blue future-Fairy by combining the green fairy with Cool Blue Gatorade and ice in a shaker. Shake until very cold. Pour Red Bull Blue Edition into a chilled upglass and strain absinthe mixture over top. Garnish with a Poppilo red nose by cutting a slit int he bottom of a maraschino cherry to decorate the rim of your glass. Sip slowly and enjoy!

Ingredients:
2 oz absinthe liquor
1 oz Red Bull Blue Edition
3 oz Cool Blue Gatorade
Cherry for garnish

You can whip up an alcohol free version of Popplio with just a little work, thanks to a trick we learned from this recipie. Bring your water to a boil, then drop in star anise, cinnamon, and peppercorns. Stir in  sugar until fully dissolved. Pour your mixture into a jar and let chill, and place this mix and your Red Bull Blue Edition into the fridge. Remove star anise, cinnamon and peppercorn just before serving. Combine 1 oz of anise syrup and Cool Blue Gatorade and ice in a shaker and shake until very cold. Pour Red Bull Blue Edition into a chilled upglass and strain anise mixture over top. Garnish with a Poppilo red nose by cutting a slit int he bottom of a maraschino cherry to decorate the rim of your glass. Sip slowly and enjoy!
