* While visiting Hengsha in DeusExHumanRevolution Adam has the option of buying some [[http://deusex.wikia.com/wiki/Cocktails drink cocktails]] from a local club called The Hive. He can only ever get one of each, but given their descriptions he probably just decided to stop before he ended up in a coma.

* In ''VideoGame/WolfensteinIITheNewColossus'', Horton Boone's moonshine. One shot loosens BJ Blazkowicz's lips [[spoiler:even in his new SuperSoldier body]]. Two shots and he's shouting, arguing, and ranting [[spoiler:about his own surprisingly right-wing views]]. Three shots and he's on the ground. [[spoiler:Boone says most people are out after one shot.]]

** There is but one drink that can beat a Serra Madre Martini... the awesome Large Wasteland Tequila. At 100 survival skill it gives you +9 strength, +3 charisma, and -9 intelligence. (The maximum stat level is 10 and the minimum stat level is 1.) It makes you as strong and as ''stupid'' as statistically possible\\
\\
However if you have Cass, and her Whiskey Rose perk which negate the bad effects of alcohol, it'll turn from a GargleBlaster into a SuperSerum. She can also make Moonshine if the Courier provides the ingredients: two mutfruit, yeast and... a fission battery.

** In the backstory, the [[OurElvesAreDifferent Bosmer (Wood Elves)]] are bound by the Green Pact, an agreement they made with the patron deity of their forest homeland to never harm the plant life within. As a result, the Pact limits their ability to produce alcohol from fruit or grain, so they've invented alternatives. Jagga is fermented pig's milk, similar to real life Mongolian Airag (replacing horses with pigs). There is also Rotmeth, created from fermented meat rubbed with the organs of Thunderbugs, which takes years to brew. It is an essential drink to have at all Bosmer weddings.

*** The player can enter into a drinking competition [[spoiler:with a man who turns out to be Sanguine, the Daedric Prince of debauchery]]. The brew is apparently strong enough that the Dragonborn wakes up on the other side of Skyrim with no memory of the previous night, having experienced all manner of wacky adventures.
*** Talen-Jei, the waiter at the Bee and Barb inn, dabbles in making cocktails. The Cliff Racer, a blend of Firebrand Wine, Cyrodiilic Brandy, Flin, and Sujamma, fits this trope closest, but the Velvet [=LeChance=] deserves an honorable mention for being garnished with Deadly Nightshade (albeit a nonlethal quantity).
*** Also in Skyrim, with the Dawnguard expansion. They introduced Redwater Skooma, in a Skooma house. Which immediately knocks the drinker out, only to be dragged down to the basement to become a Vampire's Thrall. Interestingly your companion is locked up with you, despite not drinking any.

** A quest in ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'' sees Geralt and his witcher buddies improvise a few alarming cocktails to reach appropriate levels of sloshed despite their super-efficient metabolisms.

* ''Videogame/LeagueOfLegends'': Gragas' brews might already qualify, considering the barrels he tosses around; the brews inside are strong enough to significantly slow down ''any'' champion, from mere human to abomination, and the stronger varieties are explosive enough that they can be used as actual ordnance. Oh, and they can get ''him'', a giant of a man who has been drinking extra-potent brews his entire life, drunk. Just not quite as drunk as he wishes. Hence, his ultimate goal is find a way to brew a definite Gargle Blaster that will finally get him absolutely smashed.

** Banana Infused Rum is something you can make if you study Way of the Brew in Pandara and max out the skill. It requires not only bananas and rum (of specific brands) but Witchberries, a silkworm Pupa, and Black Pepper. Drinking it actually turns you into a Hozen Pirate for thirty seconds. (Remarkable in that Hozen are monkey-like humanoids.)

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', Ancient Dagoth Brandy can be found, and its effects include semi-permanent reductions to both intelligence and willpower, with no benefits to show for it. Considering the drinks have likely been fermenting in the presence of plague-infested evil for a few hundred years, its potency is understandable.

* From the ''VideoGame/MortalKombat'' series, the contents of [[DrunkenMaster Bo Rai Cho's]] gourd. Outworld is comparable to Asia, so perhaps it's a variation of Baijiu, the stronger versions of which are called 'Chinese Lighter Fluid'. Regardless, whatever it is it's extremely flammable, can even cause Bo Rai Cho himself to spew and is lethal if imbibed by anyone else. Indeed one of his fatalities in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'' involves him force-feeding his opponent liquor, causing them to vomit forth their own intestines.

* ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'' allows the player to engage in a drinking contest, with the final round (before the opponent passes out) being a beverage known only as scurrd. It is, from a game-rules perspective, statistically ''impossible'' for any normal human being to imbibe scurrd without losing consciousness; it requires a Constitution score one point higher than what a first-level character is capable of having. A character with magically-enhanced or dwarven constitution can safely drink the scurrd, which results in the opponent passing out, and earns the PC massive respect from his buddies. If you successfully drink it, it temporarily doubles your hit points. It's the game world spontaneously recognizing the sheer {{Badass}}ery of your feat.
