Here I present the first video in a series where I make video game and geeky foods!
I had originally intended to make the recipe for Nuka Cola contained in the official Fallout cookbook published by Bethesda. I thought it would be a great way to start off my series, with a signature drink every gamer instantly recognizes. But upon reading the ingredients, I realized that both my husband and myself would both die of a diabetic coma three sips into the finished product. And as much as I’d like to stay authentic to the vision of the actual game makers, I don’t have a respawn point IRL.
So I hit the internet in hopes that I would find something I could modify, and I’m happy to say I did. Not only for the basic recipe of Nuka Cola, but an entire list of every variation I could ever dream of.
With this basic recipe (which also ended up being loads cheaper than the one in the cookbook), I was able to come up with a more diabetic friendly version of Nuka Cola, which my husband inhaled in a few short days.
A couple of words of warning, though. The bubbles don’t last long so don’t plan on making a large batch of this. It doesn’t have a very strong flavor, but the finish is sweet and creamy. Overall, the blend is pretty tasty!
I also had fun making a special Nuka Cola tumbler using my Cricut, and I included it in this video. The label is not my original design, just something I found on Google.
So here’s the video, and I hope you enjoy it!
