Drink one whenever:

  • A player on your team gets hit.

Drink three whenever:

  • Your team is scored on.
  • A player on your team takes a penalty.

Finish your drink whenever:

  • Your team gets shut out.
  • A player on your team clearly loses a fight.
  • A player on the other team scores a hat trick.
