Resident Evil

An infectious Tonic Inspired by Resident Evil

After word about the bar slowly spread, Capcom got in touch to see if we were interested in creating a drink for one of their franchises. Brainstorming followed, we dismissed the Mega Man-hattan which made a debut years later and Final Sprite 3 was vetoed. After sketching drinks based on common elements in the games (Ink ribbons, herbs, zombies) this led to a bar regular suggesting the T-Virus and after some refinement and testing, the drink concept came together, for our ‘G&T Virus’ we were going to need syringes. A lot of syringes.


  • Highball Glass
  • Ice
  • 15ml Grenadine
  • 25ml Sloe Gin
  • 5ml Blue Curacao
  • 5ml Midori
  • 10ml Gordon’s
  • 10ml Bombay Saphire
  • 200ml Sprite
  • 5ml syringes
  • lime juice


Take a highball glass and fill with ice, start the cocktail by pouring the grenadine into the bottom of the glass, add the sloe gin and stir. Carefully pour the sprite down the side of the glass (this is to help keep the Sloe nicely layered at the bottom) Next take two shot glasses and mix together Blue Curacao and Bombay Saphire in one (T-Virus) and Midori and Gordon’s (Antivirus) in the other. Fill a different syringe with each mix and balance on the glass.
