This week Miles Morales IS the new Spider-Man! What's the secret behind his powers, and how will he master them? What new and familiar enemies will rise to challenge this all-new Spider-Man? And will Miles live up to Peter Parker's legacy?

In a world where the X-Men never existed and mutantkind has been hunted to extinction, the few remaining mutants have banded together to make their last stand. What has led Magneto and these warped X-Men to these dire circumstances - and who can save them all? We find out next week with Age of X.

That's in Bad Taste - Whenever a character mentions that dressing as Spider-man is in bad taste, take a drink.

That's New - Any time something is massively different than you remember.  Take drink.

The Rookie

  • 2 ounces Grand Marnier
  • 1 1/2 ounces Tequila (I prefer silver)
  • 2 ounces lime juice
  • 2 1/2 ounces kiwi simple syrup [recipe below]
  • lime + fresh kiwi or kiwi berries for garnish
  • coarse salt for the rim

kiwi simple syrup

  • 4 kiwi fruit, peeled
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water

directions:

Rim the ridge of your glass with a lime wedge and dip in a mix of coarse salt. In a cocktail shaker, combine the tequila, grand marnier, kiwi simple syrup and lime juice with ice, and shake for about 30 seconds. Pour over ice and squeeze in lime slices and add a few kiwi berries or kiwi chunks.

kiwi simple syrup
Add the kiwi fruit to a food processor and blend until pureed. Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil, whisking until the sugar dissolves. Turn off the heat and let the mixture cool. Once cool, add it to the food processor with the kiwi and blend until you have kiwi syrup! This can be stored in the fridge, sealed well, for a week or so.
