Organizations (Court of Owls, Hydra)

Now and then I’ve thinking about this… drinks not just about the characters, but the groups they work in, or against?

Designing these was kinda fun… and evil societies are more interesting than the good ones – maybe I’ll do more organization cocktails in the future πŸ™‚

THE COURT OF OWLS

2 parts gin

1 part vanilla-flavoured vodka

1 part Strega

1,5 parts Luxardo Maraschino

0,5 parts creme de cassis

2 parts lemon juice

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

Whoa, this is a handful; all sorts of aromas zooming around in your mouth… well, nothing less could be expected from secret society that manages to keep Batman stumbling in the dark; there’s gotta be kwazillion backup plans and all sorts of weird stuff the keep him off your trail.

And naturally links to Bat-cocktails… My first take on Batman, actually the second drink from first ever blog post ever – luckily I’ve evolved as cocktail designer 😐

The second try is much better but if you hate bitter cocktails, please check out my third version. And there’s even the mocktail version!

HYDRA

4 parts Strega

4 parts tequila reposado

2 parts vodka (regular works, but please try with vanilla)

6 to 8 parts brown energy drink

Blue Curacao, for adjusting colour to green

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass, add couple of ice cubes.

Okay, this is a weird one… with all that energy drink you might think that this would go to highball category, but make no mistake: this is too strong for that.

Same basic idea as with Court above: all sorts of aromas twirling around, like the tentacles of the octopus… I wanted to make slightly milder cocktail than Court (alcohol-wise, that is) and I thought the bitter taste of energy drink would fill the “one more strong taste”-niche.

Relevant cocktails? Red Skull, naturally. My first version of The Cap… and three more, all in the same post!

Well, I hope you like these. Next time we’re closing Midsummer’s Eve, so it’s going to be summer time party drinks! See you in a week or so πŸ™‚
