MarGOrita – a Pokemon GO Drink

It was last Saturday that Sarah and I made our trek, a three hour trip to the boardwalks, sand, and surf at Towers Beach near Ocean City. Why take this harrowing journey? To catch Pokemon, of course. I’m pretty sure there’s no other reason to leave the house.

Behind me, Sarah is quietly claiming that we actually went to visit her family, but I assure you that’s nothing but lies. The family was merely a diversion from my true goal: to capture the boardwalk. Also Squirtles.

Alas, it wasn’t meant to be. We arrived just as her family was heading out to dinner, and though I itched to patrol the beach and finally evolve my Staryu, Sarah convinced me that real life people are somehow more important than imaginary animals.

I found the logic faulty. Somehow I wound up on the way to the restaurant anyway (which didn’t even turn out to be a Pokéstop). The only redeeming thing is that we somehow managed to get turned around along the way, giving me some time to find new fire Pokemon on the side of the road.

The issue was that we couldn’t remember which restaurant we were supposed to meet at, only that it was one of those quirky beach places with a name and menu equally as saturated with grease as innuendo. Our lostness wasn’t concerning to me until I realized that the faster we ate, the faster we could get to the boardwalk and capture the gyms.

“Can’t you call him?” I asked about her brother.

“I tried. He’s not picking up.”

“Okay, well how many places like this could there be? Can we just Google it?”

Sarah shook her head, “I tried that too, but all I can remember is that it contains the word ‘dick.'”

“Oh, oh – like that one up North? What is it?”

“Dirty Dick’s?”

“No, I don’t think that’s it – Dick Crabs?”

“Crab Dicks?”

“Dicky Dicks?”

“That’s not a word.”

“Dickerson McCrabs?”

“Not helping.”

“Hairy Dicks?”

“…”

“Hairy Crabs? Crabby Hairs? Hairy, Crabby McDickerson Crab Dicks !@#%^ a !@#% on a Downtown Road in Nebraska with a Huge, Hairy, Crabby -”

“Oh, wait,” Sarah rudely interrupted. “I remember. It’s Crabby Dicks.”

“Really? That’s it?”

“I think so.”

“Oh. We passed that place like 4 miles back.”

Sarah did not look pleased. “Why didn’t you say something?!”

“There was a Vulpix!”

Wordlessly, she made a u-turn. I tried to appear guilty so she wasn’t so mad, but it was hard to look sorry for my crime with the my Pokemon Go music playing softly through the bluetooth.

Bread Smith hummed quietly in the back seat. “Duh nuuuhh… duh nuh nah nuh nuhhhh…”

When we reached the restaurant, Sarah put the car in park and frowned at me.

“You can’t go in with the hat on.”

I gasped.

“But this is my Indigo League hat! Nobody will know I’m a serious trainer if -”

“Take it off.”

I took the hat off and looked at it, and then at Sarah’s stern face. I realized this was a make it or break it decision, a true test of friendship. I asked myself, “What would Ash do?”

And then I realized the answer was, “probably something stupid,” and so I left the hat in the car.

For all you trainers, I say this should be your go-to Pokemon Go MarGOrita to get you going.

See? What other Pokemon Go drink could withstand so many puns?

But not only is it a Pokemon Go margarita, it’s also a colorful layered margarita, and a popsicle margarita, and I hardly have as many nostalgic memories as eating something sugary for breakfast while watching Pokemon on Saturday mornings.

It fuses the best parts of childhood – cartoons and ice cream – with the best parts of adulthood – being drunk with cartoons and ice cream. We even used two flavors of ICEEs to complete the picture for you, so there’s hardly any real juice involved! Hurray! What more could you want from a Pokemon Go drink?

Oh, right! Team representation! This drink consists of a team instinct margarita (pineapple), team mystic margarita (blue raspberry), and a team valor margarita (wild cherry). Together, they make a big messy rainbow, but I’m sure you all will find a way to argue about which flavor is best anyway.
