Default Cthulhu themed mead?!?!

I'm looking for ideas on a mead for a Cthulhu themed party--any suggestions? My mind is a blank on this one....



And I've already discarded the idea of sushi flavoured mead, so don't even think about it, lol

Pineapple, coconut, mandarin, wasabi, kiwi, ginger, curry?

That's kinda funny. Maybe Cthulhu doesn't want you to make a mead in his honor and is messing with your head.

Have you considered adding some herbs to alter the color of the mead to a green color? Maybe something similar to the stuff used in absinthe?

Those last four sound intriguing--maybe a kiwi/ginger mead...

Yup, and it's wormwood that's in absinthe...not sure if I actually want to go mad, especially if the world Doesn't end.


Has anyone successfully made a thallassionmel (prob. butchered the spelling, sea water mead)?

Personally, I'd go for something with a Nyarlathotep theme, mostly because Nyarlathotep ROCKS!!!!!!

Kiwi is a flavour easily swamped by others. Heat it and it's like apple i.e. it changes taste completely.

I would make a braggot with anise, wormwood, fennel and dark chocolate. And it should be crazy strong and oak aged to infinity and beyond.

For grains I'd use pale ale, some crystal, peat smoked malt. Fairly simple.

Not sure if I'd use hops, but maybe some earthy hops like Fuggles? In small dosage.

Edit: damn... I gotta remember this recipe.

Noted--don't heat kiwi. I try not to heat the fruit anyways.

That sounds good--think I'll take note of that recipe as well. Three liquorish flavoured herbs though?
