Drink Your Comics: Comic Character Concotions

2

hellboybeer3For this month’s Drink Your Comics, we decided to take our cue from Dark Horse. The company recently teamed with Rouge Ales to create a Hellboy inspired boozy beverage. The result: Right Hand of Doom Red Ale. Thus, I prompted our staff and contributors to create and/or share their own alcoholic concoction based on one of their favorite or least favorite comic book character. Reality-based restrictions need not apply.

The Zinda Blake

Pour a shot of whatever liquor happens to be handiest or free. Shoot it like a pro. Repeat until the bottle is empty or the bar closes. Garnish with a good-natured brawl.

Drunk Sailor Moon by Viehdieb

Amanda

The Sailor Moon with the Sailor Scouts

Gin, St. Germaine, topped with bubbly and a maraschino cherry. Served up (with a manicure!) and a cat on your lap.

Same base, sub St. Germaine and garnish for the following:
Venus: Cointreau and orange twist
Mars: Chambord and raspberry
Jupiter: Chartreuse and mint sprig
Mercury: Creme de Violette and blueberries

The Wuvable Oaf

Jalapeno vodka (lots of it), Crush strawberry soda, Cointreau, Looza cherry nectar, a dash of rosewater and….a dash of cumin on the top….. serve in a frosted pint glass/pitcher with several lime wedges. Like ten lime wedges. Enjoy entire beverage vessel while listening to The Smiths with your 27 cats. Try not to shed body hair into the drink.

Sarah

The Suzie

2 oz. bourbon
1 tsp. honey
slice of orange
dash of bitters
Serve in a tumbler with “Fat Bottomed Girls” playing in the background. Best drunk in bed with a partner and the faintest trace of cinnamon-flavored edible lube still on your lips.

Thor #1The Thor

2 parts Mead
1 part Raspberry juice
1 part elderflower liqueur
sprig of mint
Serve over rocks cracked with a mythical hammer. Warning: anyone who pronounces ‘feminist’ like a four letter word who drinks this will find it bitter to the taste and will suffer from thirst forever more.

So I have ZERO experience with actually mixing drinks, outside of maybe splashing some vodka into cider or rum into coke (I’m a poor 21 year old),  but I found this alcoholic drink tumblr that’s cute and themed around the robot comics I like.

Ginnis

Well, I am just going to link back to my favorite Red Sonja inspired drink: my roommate’s Tarim’s Blood Mulled Wine because c’mon. Enjoy post-brawl with your barbarian pals.

Share.

    3 oz. Bombay Sapphire © ® ™ LLC GmbH Inc. .biz (or any other blue gin that’s not as expensive/fancy)
    1 oz. sweet vermouth
    5 dashes of bitters
    1 orange twist, as garnish

    Lastly, as you drink it you must spend your time pondering why in a universe as vast as our own whether Earth’s humanity should ever be saved from it’s single biggest threat: itself.
    Or if you may, you can spend the remainder of your time drinking this beverage asking, “Who the hell thought it was a good idea to replace the whiskey with gin, whatever the the color is?”
