Mana Potion | Diablo

For when something absolutely, positively needs to explode into a ball of fire, every sorceress worth her salt reaches for her Mana Potions. Now you can enjoy limitless magical power too with this Diablo-inspired azure cocktail.

You’ll need

  • 1/2 oz coconut rum
  • 1 oz white rum
  • 1oz pineapple juice
  • 1/2oz lemon juice
  • 1oz blue curacao
  • Pearl lustre dust (optional)

Add all ingredients except the lustre dust to a shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously until chilled. Strain into your potion vessel. Add a few pinches of lustre dust and swirl to make it shimmer. Serve!

“If there was magic here, it’s long gone now—good thing I brought a few of these…”—The Sorceress, upon entering the Jail and finding herself low on magical power.

Out of mana? Not for long. Mana potions have had a snug little home in the backpack of any mystical adventurer in nearly every fantasy title, but there are few games I can think of that better exemplify their importance than the Diablo series.

You see, while they might have been done away with in the third installment, mana potions were the very life force of characters like the Sorceress and the Necromancer in the first two Diablos.

Looking for other kinds of potions? Try the Regeneration Serum from Vampyr, the Refillable Potion from League of Legends or even potions from The Witcher.

Playing as one of these characters and finding yourself without a set during a boss fight would often spell (haha, geddit?) disaster. No mana, no magic, no kabooms.

So I came up with this: fruity, fresh, and definitely tropical in tone, with an extra sparkle for when you absolutely, positively, must make something erupt into flames.

And one extra bonus: it uses many of the same baseline liquor ingredients as the Healing Potion from Dungeons & Dragons. Mix up a set of both and have yourself a nicely prepared adventuring party.

Once more into the undercroft, my friends!
