How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: The 5-Rule Mario Bros. Drinking Game

The “1-Up” AKA “Super Mario Bros. Shot” is a half shot of Midori melon liqueur and a half shot of Malibu Rum.  Got this from the fabulous Drunken Moogle. Not a barn burner, but damn is it fun on a hot pre-summer day like today where all I want to do is play retro video...
