Drinks from Skyrim | How to Drink

Real world versions of drinks from Skyrim, as served by Talen-Jei at the Bee and the Barb in Riften! I used to be an adventurer, like you, but then I took an arrow to the knee.

Skyrim is a few years old now but remains hugely popular, and it boasts a thriving community of players and modders who are keeping the thing going and going and going. I haven’t played it myself in a bit, but I have thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent in Skyrim, and I’ve been thinking about making drinks from it for a long time. It doesn’t hurt that “Drinks from Skyrim” is one of the most common requests I get, so let’s do it. Looking at Skyrim there’s a few options I can go with, Skooma comes to mind of course, but since Skyrim actually has three legitimate cocktails in its setting, it seems silly to start with anything else, so I’ll have to save the Skooma for another day. I’m instead going to focus on the drinks served by Talen-Jei, the bartender and owner of the Riften bar called The Bee and The Barb. He’s got three speciality cocktails on the menu, and they all sound pretty great, so I’m recreating those here.
