Looking at the drink list in 18th Amendment’s basement bar, I’m having a difficult time making a choice. There’s 46 choices in front of me, but I’m also rolling through the full list of 151 in my head.
After poring over the choices presented in this somewhat secret list, I ask the bartender, “Can I have a Charmander, please?”
Of course, when picking from a list of Pokémon shots, beginning with your go-to starter is a natural choice.
Meet Tyler Newcomb, a bartender with four years of experience who moved to the Washington, D.C., area earlier this year and happens to be a human PokéDex of nerd mixology. He’s got 46 recipes for the original 151 Pokémon from the Red and Blue versions written down and recalls the remainder from memory. He had written a full list when he first came up with the idea but lost that copy.
