For some reason, Thespi, your post makes me think of Gatorade or some other sports drinks to represent each clan. If you put them in front of a light, they look like they're glowing.

Cherry -> Gowen
Blueberry -> Falkow
Grape -> Lawtia
...
Apple Juice? -> Refess

GunCastor... :lol: :lol: :lol: *ROTFL*

That's good!

It's pretty bad, but I could see a Gatorade/Gowen advertisement.... "Drink Gatorade, it will give you the energy to Rank Up! ;a40

oooh, Falkow.... "Drink Gatorade for that boost of Speed/Agility you need!" ;a38

Haven't actually tried it yet, but how about something like this:

The Annarose Special
1 scoop crushed ice in a wine glass (optional?)
1/3 cup Cranberry Juice
1/3 cup Merlot (other kinds of wines?)
1/3 cup 7-up/Sprite/Club Soda
wedge of lime for garnish

Personally, I think that'd be quite tasty, and you could swap out the Merlot for more Cranberry Juice for those non-drinkers out there. A (hopefully) nice and refined drink, worthy of the Chaoslady. (And just pretend you didn't notice the item's description, this won't taste like iced tea.)

I don't really think i't would be that tasty and tematicly accurate. Not to diss yo, but here a few thing:

I don't think the crushed ice is all that great, i't only purpose as far as i see is to keep the mix cold. Where i would prefer my merlot room temperature.

Cup? God i hope your making a punch i don't think i can afford that much merlot.

As for the other thwo i don't think they ehence the flavor of the merlot, i't feel as something that would cut i't.

Personnaly i think the merlot would be a lot better on i't own.

I think An Annarose special should be dark and not cut with any ice mostly to suggest an hidden depth of her secret plot.

I'm not gonna correct the recipe because i could give hint of what my lawtia drink will be. But keep trying!
I't a long process of error and trial to get a fantastic drink!

Many have asked for i't an here is the non-alchoholic version of Rafess drink.

The Lantylit (non-alchoholic):

highball glass

1 scoop of ice

1oz of peach syrup you can also use peach juice. Some come with canned peach, you can also create your own. Recipe to fallow.
1/2 oz orrange syrup or juice. I recommend juice on this one as using 2 syrups will make i't far too sugary.
1oz of apple juice.
complete with club soda.

use peach, apple and orange as garnish, With some lemon if youi are defeated.

Syrup recipe:
Good syrup is cheep to make and taste great and can be used for any number of things.

1 cup of granulated sugar.
2 cup of the selected juice.
2 table spoon of cornstarch.

get the sugar and juice to a boil. stiring constantly add the cornstarch. keep on the fire to desired consistence.

I would say you need a syrup that fairly concentrated to pull i't off.

you can also add thing as nutmeg or cinnamon to alter the taste but i prefer strait syrup.

Now the Power of the Lantylit is available for everyone!
Keep your eye pelled for my next drink!

Well, you know more about this sort of thing than me, so I'll take you at your word. I just chose three drinks that I like, that I thought might taste good together. The ice? Not really sure why I added that. So if there's a better version I'd really like to see what you can come up with. For now, I think I'll say cranberry juice and 7-Up/Sprite will be my Annarose special. Seems like there should be alcohol, and I thought a dry wine would pair well with the dry quality of cranberry juice, but either or.

(And something completely different, the last drink idea I put together before this? Neopolitan milk. Chocolate milk, with strawberry syrup and vanilla powder. Very... different.)
