the only one i could get was red snapper. I don't think that was a cocktail and i seem to remember a robot at AWS42. don't know if it's right but i'm going for fighting robot. i think alabamma slammer is also a fighting robot as i may of heard it on a robogames video on youtube.

you should have used Urine Chaser which, if my days at university are anything to go by, is both a robot and a cocktail (almost literally), but then my uni days were..... elaborately drunken
