These are both Starbucks Smoothies that I concocted with my free drink opportunities over Sakuracon 2018 Weekend. Word of Warning: the second one is based on Mortal Kombat. There is a fan theory posted after the 2nd recipe and reaction, with a bunch of external links to Mortal Kombat material. I need to post this warning because Mortal Kombat brought shock value to mainstream gaming, and they are why we have the gaming rating setting. So click them at your own risk.
Recipe: three limes, two bananas, for protein, 8 months, 6 packets of blueberry, 6 packets of freeze dried blackberry, and begin with a venti cream-based green tea Frappuccino. I honestly couldn’t tell if I could taste the Blackberry, banana, or the cream more. Of course, seeing as how I had a free drink, I figured I’d get some of my money’s worth back.
Here is a little tale of me abusing power. I had a free drink option at Starbucks, and I decided to take when it was worth. The following is a venti drinks or stuff it almost feels too then d-cups. I recommend it for date night. I initially thought to call this the Brutality because I thought my order was a bit much for the baristas, but they assured me that it was no trouble. One wonders then what they consider a troublesome order?
And when I saw these crazy kids, the sheer pandering to Mortal Kombat fans proved impossible to resist and the name stuck. By the way how do you like my Skarlet and Kotal Khan photo? Soon as I saw them worn by a couple, I immediately figured the head canon that would explain their pairing. Before her partnership w/ Reiko, Kotal marries this creation of Shao Khan, Outworld’s most celebrated ruler. Her blood tie to the throne, his own ambitions to govern for Outworld’s wellbeing, and their mutual enemy in Mileena. If he offered custody of Mileena (weighing her status as queen upon the duration of Mileena’s survival, providing centuries for torture) as a dowry to his new bride that might stabilize her enough to maintain the throne. If that sounds extreme, keep in mind this is Mortal Kombat we’re talking about… now let Let Ship to Ship Kombat Begin! Special thanks to the Gravity Ninja herself for the inspiring cosplay.
