Please consider supporting my writing on Patreon.

With the release of the 20th Anniversary edition of Hackers on Blu-Ray, Hackers parties are popping up left and right. Help your guests get as trashed as Dade’s rights with these Hackers-inspired cocktails!

Acid Burn
Shaken and served on the rocks! 
2 oz. light rum
1 oz. lime juice
4 oz. pineapple juice
1/2 oz. grenadine
habanero bitters to taste

Crash And Burn
Shaken and served on the rocks!
2 oz. tequila
1/2 oz. mezcal
1 oz. lime juice
4 oz. orange juice
1/2 oz. grenadine
habanero bitters to taste

Zero Cool
Shaken and served up!
2 oz. gin
1 oz. green Chartreuse
1 oz. lime juice
1/2 oz. Yerba Mate syrup

Hack The Planet
Suspiciously like a Cuba Libre… served on the rocks!
2 oz. light rum
Jolt Cola
Lime wedge

Hacked Gibson
Served up, stirred, not shaken. We are not barbarians.
2 oz. gin
1/2 oz. dry vermouth
Cocktail onion*
Pour gin and vermouth into a glass. Add ice to the top. Stir until well-chilled. Strain into martini glass. Look at cocktail onion. Recognize that cocktail onions are garbage. Mumble “god” under your breath, and toss cocktail onion into the Garbage File. Congratulations, you’ve hacked the Gibson!

Serve these cocktails, and watch other party hosts mess with the best and die like the rest. Just don’t rollerblade after drinking, and remember: it’s not a hangover, it’s The Plague.

  1. So, the hacked gibson is just a martini then? Not that a gibson isn’t really a martini to begin with. Just one with a different garnish.
