Begin your journey as you experience the wrath of your enemies that stand in your way as symbolized by the extreme potency of the Absinthe but you need not fear because you’re a man among men as symbolized by the ruggedness of the Whiskey and Vodka. Bathe in the blood of your enemies as symbolized by the blood red color of the Grenadine. Then feel the incendiary power of Ares’ flame as symbolized by the spicy cinnamon flavor of the Goldschlager. Prepare to experience the icy depths of the deepest sea as Poseidon plunges you into the abyss as symbolized by the cooling sensation of the Peppermint Schnapps. Very soon you’ll experience the rot and decay of the Underworld as Hades readies your eternal prison as symbolized by the overwhelming APV of the Bacardi 151. Finally you’ll reach your ultimate goal as the final battle against the God of Gods, Zeus, is all that stands in your way as symbolized by the energizing kick of the Red Bull. Now stand in the glory of your victory, but as you look upon the land, know that all that transpired has come at a price for the sweetness of victory and the sourness of the consequences of your actions are symbolized by the Sweet & Sour.
As you can see, every ingredient within this drink is a step towards your journey and part of your trials set forth before you. Now Kratos, rise as the true God of War, it has been a long and tiresome journey.
