About Blasphemous Cocktails
      A message from Steve Wollett... A group of friends that I have known since childhood have always gone out drinking with me on Friday nights. We enjoy role playing games and make all kinds of special drinks. During a conversation at GenCon Indy 2012 at the Marriott bar, while quite drunk, came the idea of a game book that was really a recipe book of cocktails. Somewhere along the line it became a conversation about H. P. Lovecraft and horror/pulp writers and how alcohol and drugs may have affected their stories. 
    I went home and thought about things and it all came together. Then I hooked up with several bartender friends and showed them my work. They tried the cocktails out and gave me feedback.  In the end I have come up with a book of fabulous drinks that would be a great addition to any party. 
    The book shall include drinking rules for Dungeons and Dragons d20 and Savage Worlds.  Now you will be able to have an Innsmouth Ice tea at the same time as your character drinks one and experience the life that he is living at the same time as you role play the situation.
    So now is your opportunity to show your support by purchasing a copy of my book! You will soon discover that your parties and games will take on a life of their own as people indulge in some of the most extraordinary beverages they have ever tasted. We have a world class mixologist to prepare our recipes and a dozen taste testers to try them out.
      If you have cocktails that you have designed and want to add to our book then please contact us and we will consider your recipe. If we add it you will get listed as the creator of said drink in the book.

  • .5 ounces white rum  
  • .5 ounces tequila  
  • .5 ounces Southern Comfort® peach liqueur
  • Splash of grenadine syrup

What does "Hard Copy" mean?
    A hard copy is a physical copy. It does not mean a hard cover copy. Blasphemous Cocktails will be printed softbound in both perfect binding and spiral binding. Backers will get to choose which binding method they prefer. While perfect binding may look better on the shelf, the spiral binding seems better on the table when preparing the cocktails. 

Are the recipe's original?
     Many of the recipes are completely original creations of the author, some are classics with my personal twist, and others are classic recipes that fit the feel and theme of the book (horror/pulp/prohibition). There are well over 100 recipes within and with late submissions that number is growing. Do you have a cool recipe you think should be in the book? Send it to me and if I like it, I shall add it it to the collection and list you as the source. 

Enjoy, Steve Wollett
