If you were around for the original Nintendo NES era of gaming, then chances are good that you’re old enough to have also come to appreciate the value of an alcoholic beverage. Now there’s a way to combine your love of Nintendo with your love of drinking.
Via Nintendo Prime, Ink Whiskey has released Bartendo: a line of Nintendo inspired flasks, shot glasses, and even a bottle opener. Note that these products are not officially licensed by Nintendo, but they are very thinly disguised parodies that are bound to bring a smile to classic gamers. We particularly love the flasks, which are modeled after some of the NES’ biggest hits and shaped like old school cartridges.
After seeing these, we wish these games were real so that everyone could play Super Bar-Hop Bros, Legend of Drink, Metal Beer, Castle-vodka, Fine-Ale Fantasy, Double Flagon, Ninja Dry-Gin, Kegaman, and others. In fact, Kegaman even has its own Double Pint Glasses, which are sold separately.
If you prefer something that reminds you of the Mushroom Kingdom, there’s also a four pack of Warp Shot Glasses, which Ink Whiskey describes as “the perfect portal to another…less stressful dimension.” Sounds good to us!
Unfortunately, the Tri-Force inspired ice cube tray appears to be sold out, but the NES Zapper-like “Capper Gun Bottle Opener” is still available as well. You can find all of the Bartendo merchandise here.
