* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' has a list of dangerously potent alcoholic drinks the PC can give to Oghren (or Wynne, though Wynne prefers wine). The only drinks that ''don't'' count as gargle blasters are the watered-down ale and the wine. And the brandy. More amazingly, in ''Awakening'', Oghren is able to easily shrug off the darkspawn blood (and other mysterious-and-horrible ingredients) used for the Joining ritual of the Grey Wardens with a loud burp and a claim that it was "Not bad", while other characters either pass out and have freakish nightmares or die hideous deaths.

** ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' has Ryder encounter a krogan bartender, who's first words to Ryder are emphatically stating that no matter what Ryder says, they're not getting any ryncol (their reaction suggests the bartender's had to deal with non-krogan coming in and asking before). Not that Ryder can't find Gargle Blasters elsewhere. One side-quest has them hunting down the strongest booze on [[WretchedHive Kadara]], as a gift for Nakmor Kesh. Ryder buys her a six pack of the (very illegal) drinks... and it doesn't do a thing to Kesh.
** A background event at [[BadGuyBar Kralla's Song]] has the bartender trying to find something, ''anything'' to knock out Nakmor Drack. Eventually, she had to resort to filling a 190% proof drink with tranquilisers, which got Drack's attention. At one point, the bartender can serve Ryder a mix of angaran wine (which has a strong kick with a slow absorption rate) mix with ryncol. HilarityEnsues.

* ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'': Lord knows what happened to the wine being quaffed by the bone courtiers inhabiting the ruins during the years they've been there, but it's telling that the only beings willing to try it are skeletons. If they so much as splash any on a living human they suffer both physical and stress damage.

* 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.
