More complex drinks (cocktails, etc.)

Recommended Posts

To me, the biggest gap in the new cooking system is the lack of complexity and variety in drinks. Most of them are relatively straightforward, and some of those can be flavored/distilled, but... that's about it.

 

It just seems like beverages got the short end of the stick here, aside from the basic fermenting/distillation mechanics.

 

There's so much more that can be done with this!

  • Liquor cocktails
  • Non-alcoholic mixed drinks (e.g. Arnold Palmer)
  • Sangria
  • Mulled wine
  • Wassail
  • Various forms of fruit punch
  • Flavored lemonades
  • Masala chai and other more complex tea varieties
  • Horchata
  • New drink components, such as nut milks

 

I'll also take this opportunity to mention, as I did during the cooking update's development, that alcohol is still sort of broken. It still hydrates you (even though stronger liquors definitely should not), so you can't drink much before being too "bloated". This means that not only does the reed pen/measuring jug exploit still exist (taking smaller sips for the same alcohol content), it's basically required. It's hardly ideal when a system like this requires the use of counterintuitive, buggy behavior in order to function, but from a game design and player QoL perspective.

They were, but they're back in town by now, I think.

 

Back on topic, we already have cold ones. Unless by "cold ones" you mean milkshakes, which of course you do.
