Justice Society, part 1 (Stargirl, Wildcat)

JSA is one bunch of superheroes I haven’t paid much attention… sure, there’s The Atom, Dr. Fate, Hawkman etc. but I didn’t design them JSA especially in mind.

So, next few posts are about JSA members and their adversaries. After that, they’ll end up as a handy compilation among the rest in recipes and downloads.

STARGIRL

6 parts white rum

4 parts Passoã

2 parts Luxardo Maraschino

6 parts pineapple juice

(small dash of Grand Marnier, see below)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass, add one ice cube. Garnish with red cherry.

Mary Pickford is one delightful cocktail, one of my Prohibition Era favourites: I decided to use it as a basis for delightful character, Stargirl. I restrained myself for not straying too far from the original, I wanted to preserve that pert taste; also reminded myself that the final cocktail should not be too complex to make.

Anyway, here is Stargirl The Cocktail. It’s brisk, perky… as lively as Courtney Whitmore would ever be.

About Grand Marnier… I personally love how pineapple, Maraschino and rum collide in Mary Pickford and I wanted to retain that feature… even though I know some don’t quite enjoy it. Small splash of Grand Marnier will soften up the clash… but beware: it also “dulls” the cocktail. So: just a small splash, if any.

WILDCAT

2 parts mezcal

2 parts gin

1 part Heering

1 part Kahlúa

dash of Tabasco sauce

(black food colouring, not pictured)

Shake with ice and strain into a shot glass.

Ted Grant is a tough guy, so I guess his namesake drink should be as like.

Mezcal and gin; nasty combo, balanced with Heering and Kahlúa… which, gentle liqueurs as they are, jumble up the drink to such a level it should be taken as a shot: larger glasses (original idea) are not recommended.

And to your surprise… Tabasco sauce actually makes this shot more manageable (as long as you don’t overdo it): vinegar and chili, while adding more “wild” into the Wildcat, also round up the overall taste.

You approve “mean feline drink idea” but can’t quite stomach Wildcat? Please check out eg. Hellcat.

Hope you enjoy these 🙂
