Care For A Shot Of Boomer Bile?

Ever fancied yourself a nice tall glass of Boomer bile? Personally I tend to stay as far away from that stuff as possible. Apparently the guys over at OXM teamed up with a cocktail bar to create several gaming-inspired drinks that are sure to be a hit at your next LAN party. Check out the list below.

Boomer Bile

Slice up five pieces of cucumber and throw them into a glass half-filled with ice, then crush the lot with a pestle. Pour 45ml of gin, 1 oz of vodka, a dash of lemon juice and Worcester sauce. and 3oz of elderflower cordial into a shaker. Now shake until mixed and pour into the glass.

Flaming Hunter

Add into a cocktail shaker the following: 50ml Maker’s Mark. 10ml Cherry Heering, 10ml Contra and a dash of Angostura. Shake the contents well, then pour into a small glass and drop in one or two cherries to sit in the bottom of the glass.

Bum Rush

Run a lemon wedge around the rim of a cocktail glass then cover with coarse salt. Crush a few ice cubes into a cocktail shaker then pour in 50ml Arita Tequila, 22ml Triple Sec, 20ml lime juice and drop in a couple of chili seeds. Shake and pour into the glass and attach one chilli pepper onto the side.


Fill a tall glass with ice and crush with a pestle, adding to the ice until it fills the glass three-quarters full. Grab your cocktail shaker and pour in the following: 30ml Smirnoff vodka, 20ml Blue Curacao, 10ml Myrtille and a dash of lemon juice. Now pour into the glass until you fill it three-quarters full. Top the rest with champagne then add fresh blueberries and blackberries.

Spinning Piledriver

Carve off a lemon skin in a spiral shape and wrap the skin around the inside of a glass, using ice cubes to prop up the skin to the inside of the glass. Take your cocktail shaker and mix in 40ml cognac and 20ml lemon juice and pour into the mixture. Now repeat with 50ml crème de pèche and 15ml crème d’apricot, then pour the mixture slowly into the glass via the top of the lemon spiral.

Poison Arrow

Fill up a shot glass with lime cordial and add a dash of Grenadine to the top. Now very slowly pour Baileys into the centre of the shot glass until the liqueur hits the bottom of the shot. Take a straw and slowly twirl it round so the Baileys twists around the tube. Retract the straw and serve.

Now that I know what Boomer Bile is, I’m still staying far away from it. Worcester sauce? No thanks. Then again, it might make for a good drinking game. Every time you get Boomered in L4D you take a shot of Boomer Bile.
