If you want your shindig to stand out, you should ditch that traditional booze, morph yourself into a cocktail alchemist and one-up your friends and coworkers with science...

The Ouya isn't your standard liquid cocktail. It's served as liquid-filled beads formed using a technique known as reverse spherification, a fancy term for turning liquids or liquefied foods into gel-covered, liquid-filled spheres that pop in your mouth.

Ingredients:

Sobe Pina Colada
Gatorade Fruit Punch
G2 Gatorade Blueberry-Pomegranate
1 Part Whipped Cream Vodka

Start by filling glasses to the brim with ice then pour the drink with the highest sugar content into the cups (Sobe Pina Colada) and fill them approximately one third full. For the second layer pour the second drink with the lower sugar content slowly (Gatorade Fruit Punch) through the ice to fill approximately the second third of the glasses. Finish with the sugar-free drink (G2 Gatorade Blueberry-Pomegranate) and top each glass with vodka. The vodka will sit on top of the creation. Be careful, this drink can be very strong!
