The Brony | MLP-Inspired Cocktail

Nerdship! It has been so long since I’ve been able to guide you through the adventurous land that is fandom-boozery… too long, in fact. Good news is, I am about to remedy it with this awesome MLP-inspired libation!

What?! MY LITTLE PONY? Are you insane? That’s like…a…a kids’ show!

…well…the jury is still out on that one. If My Little Pony is a bit too much, let me adjust those rainbow-covered beer goggles a bit and focus more on the BRONIES! Yes. That’s right. I just said BRONIES.

If you are unfamiliar with the term, let me help. A brony is “A name typically given to the male viewers/fans (whether they are straight, gay, bisexual, etc.) of the My Little Pony show or franchise. They typically do not give in to the hype that males aren’t allowed to enjoy things that may be intended for females.” (Thanks, Urban Dictonary!)

So, about this drink (now that I’ve got your undivided attention)… The Brony Cocktail, or just The Brony for short, is a cute looking drink that packs one heck of a punch – like getting kicked in the chest by Nightmare Moon.

In short, it’s a blue, citrusy drink topped with a rainbow that looks like Rainbow Dash. Fans of this drink have said that it sort of tastes like a Dreamsicle-Smarties candies hybrid. This is not your go-to drink if you’re hanging out with the DudeBros after a long day of manning about… unless those DudeBros are also Bronies and you are just hanging out with the herd. If that’s the case, then GOOD ON YA’ BRO!

*****

As with all of our cocktails, adult beverages, libations, etc… be responsible. Don’t be a stupid head with alcohol or Nightmare Moon with hunt you down and bash your skull in. True story.

 It’s dangerous being a Brony.
