Painkiller

Were still scratching out heads about this one.  It all started with our confusion about the title, and got worse from there.  This week were reading the surreal Manga parody, Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo.  Try getting your spell check not to freak out over that combination of letters.

  • 2 oz Navy or Dark Rum
  • 4 oz Pineapple Juice
  • 1 oz Cream of coconut
  • 1 oz Orange Juice
  • Garnish with Nutmeg

Shake the shit out of it, and then strain in to a glass.  Garnish with Nutmeg.

Bryan Dedicated this tiki cocktail to Adam, in hopes it would take all the pain from this book away.

Satan's Whiskers

Were taking out our first Manga this week with Death Note, written by Tsugumi Ohba and art by Takeshi Obata,.  An epic cat and mouse game between a brilliant teen who can easily kill just by writing down a name, and the detective determined to catch the killer.

  • .5 oz Gin
  • .5 oz Sweet Vermouth
  • .5 oz Dry Vermouth 
  • .25 oz Grand Mariner
  • .5 oz Orange Juice
  • 3 dashes of Orange Bitters

This is a very old cocktail, and not nearly as bad ass as the name implies.

Bombed Out Manhattan

This week we enter the Demilitarized Zone, AKA the DMZ, AKA Manhattan.  The story takes us thru a war torn New York in the center of a second American Civil War. Vertigo presents DMZ, a tale from expertly written by Brian Wood with beautiful Art by Riccardo Burchielli.



  • 1/2 oz Vodka
  • 1/2 oz Gin
  • 1/2 oz Light Rum
  • 1/2 oz Tequila
  • 1/2 oz Triple Sec
  • 1 oz Orange Juice
  • 1 oz Pineapple Juice
  • 1 oz Cranberry Juice
  • 1 oz Sweet and Sour

Add all the ingredients into a shaker with ice.  Shake until cold, and then strain into a glass of your choice.  

Adams cocktail is a variation on the Long Island Iced tea, and is likely to get you bombed while you read DMZ.

Bad Day At Work

Matt Fraction brings us a new take on Clint Barton - aka the self-made hero Hawkeye. With ex-Young Avenger Kate Bishop by his side, this thriller spans the globe. The stylistic art from David Aja and Javier Pulido brings Matt Fractions globe trotting romp to life.



1 cup sugar
1 ½ ounces Bluecoat or other high-quality gin
4 ounces clementine orange juice (from about 3 to 5 clementines)
Generous splash of seltzer

 

PREPARATION

  1. Fill a tumbler with crushed ice and set aside.
  2. Make simple syrup: In a small saucepan, mix the sugar with 1 cup water. Simmer over low heat until sugar dissolves. Set aside to cool, about 5 minutes.
  3. In a shaker, combine the gin and orange juice with 1 teaspoon simple syrup. (Remaining syrup can be refrigerated for up to 1 week.) Shake well, and pour into the tumbler. Top with a splash of seltzer, add a stirrer and serve.

Ok, so I got this recipe form the New York Times.  So the making your own simple syrup thing may be a bit over kill. Especially if you truly have had a bad day and this cocktail quickly.

The Wonder Woman

This week we are discussing 2002 Wonder Woman: The Hiketeia. From Greg Rucka and J.G. Jones, this book would begin Rucka’s long run writing Wonder Woman.  We changed up the format a little this week.  In part one we do a spoiler free intro to the book, then in part two we step thru the plot of the book and explore this gem.  Let us know what you think of the format change on our website, or any of our social media outlets.  Next week we are reading Hawkeye: My Life as a Weapon.  A modern take on what an Avenger does when he has no suit, no powers, and isn’t Avenging.



2 oz. Midori melon liqueur
2 oz. Peach Schnapps
2 oz. Cranberry Juice
3 oz. Orange Juice
1 oz. Pineapple Juice

 

Fill hurricane glass with ice. Add ingredients in order listed. Don't stir! Should have three layers; green, orange, and red. Garnish with a cherry.

If done right your glass should look like Wonder Woman.  If you do it wrong, You still have a tasty beverage.
