Not every person can be a superhero, however you sure can rock Happy Hour as one with these Marvel themed cocktails. Adding a Marvel theme to your cocktails will add a powerful punch to your drinks. Everyone will approve, especially when you can make a drink that is based on their favorite hero.
Let The Games Begin
Cocktails are delicious to drink, however, they can be quite entertaining to create as well. Don’t worry, you don’t have to be an expert to assemble any of these. It doesn’t take a lot of skill to create these, you just need to know the right ingredients and how to put them together. No degree in mixology required. Starting with an underdog, this Hawkeye cocktail best served in a highball glass over ice. Begin by coating the rim of the glass with light corn syrup followed by “salting” it with black sugar. Now, taking equal parts of your favorite brands on Blue Curacao and Blackberry Vodka, mix with two parts grape juice. Serve over ice or frozen blackberries. Garnish with fresh mint if you like.
Maybe you want to go for the playboy, incredibly smart and creative Iron Man. For this you will want to use a rocks glass. You can serve this over ice or leave it dry. Either way it will be delicious. This is created by pouring a layer of UV Cherry flavored Vodka with a floated layer of orange juice on top. Very simple but still sophisticated.
It’s All In The Muscles
Ordinarily, these would all be together, in this case, though, these two are a bit of a two step process and belong in a section all their own. Captain America the name says it all, just as the drink speaks for itself. It’s America’s cocktail! This isn’t exactly a mixed drink but a fancy shot. Fill your shot glass with one part UV Cherry flavored vodka and one part UV Blue Raspberry flavored vodka. Top this with a layer of plain vodka.
If you want a drink that screams to Hulk Smash, try this Incredible Hulk themed drink. Using a highball glass, coat the edge with light corn syrup and dress it with purple sugar. Because you can’t have the Hulk cocktail without honoring his signature purple pants. Mix equal parts of Hennessy and Hpnotiq, serve over ice and you will be smashing the dance floor just as the Hulk smashes his enemies.
The Best For Last
The strong, yet quiet Black Widow is the inspiration for this final cocktail. Just as it is comparable to the character, this cocktail is quiet and when you least expect, it hits you and it’s gone. For this, it is fitting to be in a rocks glass with ice. Very simply, layer one part dark rum of your choosing, over one part Aftershock. Simple but it will get you every time.
For all super fans, check out these old school Marvel Heroes pint glasses and these Avengers shot glasses. These are perfect for decoration or a night of taking shots. Either way, these glasses will be a hit.
