NotesEdit

  • Prior to patch 1.2.0.31x, atomic cocktails required an additional 1 Nuka-Cola Victory, 1 vodka, and a bottle of wine to craft.
  • The hotkey icon for this item is of food rather than a drink.
  • Despite being an alcoholic beverage, it doesn't have the risk of alcohol addiction.

Behind the scenesEdit

The atomic cocktail was an alcoholic drink served (among other places on the strip) during nuclear weapons testing in the 1950s in Las Vegas' Sky Room, where tourists could view mushroom clouds form at the Nevada proving grounds from a distance. This was a considerable tourist draw from 1951-1963 when Las Vegas was also known as "Atomic City". Las Vegas businessmen had, at the time, a penchant for marketing everything as "atomic".
