You cross the threshold out into the stale, choking air of [insert city name here]. All around you, there are signs of decay on the walls and ghastly creatures waiting to cause your demise. You’ve got your [maybe I should make a dex character first?] by your side, ready to strike down the foes in your way. If any of the [whatever they call hollows in this game] stand in your way, you don’t expect to show them any mercy. But as you go deeper into the [assume there’s a castle. Lava area? Oh god, probably Blighttown], the true test of your character awaits. An enemy, seemingly ancient, hellbent on your destruction, awaits. The world is crashing down around you, and the [I assume age of fire / dark / cinder?] is ending. Are you going to save the world, or put it down for good?
In case this wasn’t immediately obvious, I am very VERY excited for Dark Souls 3 but have had a media blackout on all things related to the game for a few months now. I can promise that anything mentioned above was not a spoiler but just an assumption on what we’ll be seeing in our next foray into the Souls Universe. My only exposure has been the network test which From Software ran a half a year ago, but mostly everything in the game was blocked off. Considering how much I want to play this game first as a blind playthrough, the lack of information was for the better.
However, I couldn’t help but notice there was another estus flask available to the player. We all know of the estus flask that was so delicious in Dark Souls and later in Dark Souls 2, but what could this new shiny Ashen Estus Flask be? That is a question I actually have because, as of writing this, I am staring at the clock waiting for the game to be released. However, we can gather some hints from what we interpreted from the Estus Flask recipe and the color of the bottle and end up with another delicious drink to carry you through the many many deaths awaiting us. Pour yourself a glass and dive in!
4 oz tequila
2 oz curacao
2 oz triple sec
3 oz lime juice
1 ½ cup ice cubes
2 tsp sugar
Place the ice cubes in a blender. Pour the tequila, curacao, triple sec, lime juice and sugar on top of the ice cubes.
Blend by using the crush setting on your blender, until the mixture resembles a slushie.
Take the container you will be filling with the beverage and rub a half of a lime on the rim. Pour some salt on a plate. Place the glass rim down on the plate and cover the rim with salt.
Pour the blue drink in and enjoy.
