7 Delicious Cocktails That Batman Superfans Can’t Miss

Anyone knows that combining drinks with your favorite things will only make things even better, and that’s why these Batman themed cocktails are the best way to enjoy a Dark Knight marathon or Arkham Knight game session.

We’ve totally got anyone sorted who’s looking for the perfect drinks menu for a Batman/comic book themed party, or just wants to take a moment to envision themselves as Bruce Wayne in the bat lair. Buzzfeed has ingeniously come up with seven themed cocktails that, with one sip, will instantly transport you over to the dark world of Gotham.

1. The Bruce Wayne

enhanced-7705-1434741778-2

    4½ oz. black iced coffee
    2 oz bourbon

    ¼–½ oz. maple syrup

    To make this, you’re going to have to let a brewed pot of coffee chill until cold. Once cool, you can measure all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with some ice and shake thoroughly until chilled and foamy. Strain into a glass over ice.

    This one’s perfect for those dark and mysterious types, who’ll no doubt sneak off on ‘official business’ before the night’s over. Combining black iced coffee with bourbon, with a sweet slither of maple syrup, this cocktail oozes the sophistication of all caped billionaires out there. Bad guys might want to back away from anyone found drinking this, they’re no doubt already onto you.

    2. The Boy Wonder

    enhanced-10895-1434741312-1

      3 oz. orange juice
      2 oz. sparkling wine
      1 oz. silver tequila
      Splash grenadine or maraschino cherry juice

      Pour the orange juice, sparkling wine and tequila into a champagne flute and stir. Tilt the glass slightly and carefully pour the grenadine or cherry juice down the side so that it settles at the bottom. Garnish with lime slice.

      This cocktail pairs up perfectly alongside the Bruce Wayne and is great for anyone ready to step up and be adventurous. Constantly on the look out for trouble and mischief, you’re ready for action at any time of the day. You just gotta make sure you get one of your five a day, as you’re still growing.

      3. The Joker

      enhanced-17815-1434741352-1

        3 oz. Jolly Rancher-infused vodka
        ¼ oz. lime juice
        Seltzer

        You’re going to need to prep a little bit for this one, but for looks and the taste – it’s so worth it. Unwrap 10-12 purple Jolly Ranchers sweets and put them in a sealable container along with 1½ cups of vodka. Shake and let this sit overnight (or at least until the candy has dissolved fully when the container is shaken) and chill until the party. Add your infused vodka to a glass along with the lime juice and seltzer, garnishing with a lime slice to finish off the look.

        Uh-oh, the Joker’s about! This is the ultimate cocktail for anyone with a mischievously cheeky side and ready to pull some fun and frolics. Pair this up with an outfit of a similar palette and your party guests will be in absolutely no doubt whatsoever that the Joker is in attendance and ready to cause trouble.

        4. The Poison Ivy

        enhanced-15438-1434741366-13

          2 oz. gin
          1 oz. St. Germain
          ¾ oz. fresh-squeezed lime juice
          3 sprigs fresh basil
          2 sprigs fresh mint

          Combine the ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake well. Open up, fill with ice, and shake again for at least 20 seconds to give the herbs chance to break up and flavor the drink. Then strain into your glass.

          Beautiful yet deadly; which of your party guests does this match up with? Looks can be deceiving and whilst this one may look stunning, it packs a secret punch – but it’ll still leave you wanting more.

          5. The Mr. Freeze

          enhanced-2204-1434741379-1

            6 oz. pineapple juice
            1½ oz. white rum
            1½ oz. blue Curaçao
            3–4 blue raspberry Jolly Rancher candies (optional)

            Another that takes a bit of pre-planning. To get the sweet taste and bright color, you’ll need to crush some raspberry Jolly Rancher candies (you might as well stock up at this point) in a bag with a rolling pin. Rub the rim of your glass with a lime slice and then roll the crushed candies on to coat. This is entirely optional, if you can’t be bothered doing this – just skip this.

            The night before making the party, divide pineapple juice into an ice cube tray and stick it in the freezer.

            To make this, get out your blender and put the pineapple ice cubes and the rum/Curaçao and pulse – blending til smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy the freeze.

            This one’s perfect for anyone who has a suave and cool attitude, but quite perhaps a villainous side too.

            6. The Catwoman

            enhanced-9665-1434741397-1

              2 oz. bourbon whiskey
              1 oz. sweet vermouth
              ½ oz. creme de cassis
              ½ oz. fresh-squeezed lemon juice
              Dash bitters

              Shake all ingredients vigorously with ice and strain into a martini glass (or serve on the rocks, if your prefer).

              Shake the ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker and strain into a glass Serve on rocks if desired.

              Advertising

              This one is sophisticated, with a dark side. Perfect for anyone ready to pounce at any moment.

              7. The Alfred

              enhanced-17681-1434741414-3

                2 cups Pimm’s No. 1
                3 cups brewed black tea, chilled
                2 12-oz. bottles ginger beer

                1 lemon
                1 orange
                6 sprigs fresh mint

                To make this beauty, slice your freshly-washed fruit into thin rounds and then add them into a large pitcher along with the Pimms and chilled tea. Once stirred thoroughly, chill in the fridge for at least an hour. When ready to serve, stir in the ginger beer and pour into glasses filled with ice.

                This one’s quietly reserved and low-key, but packs a punch… Just like a certain butler we all know. It’s a drink for the intellectual stood at the back of the room watching as the party events unfold, storing up all their new-found knowledge ready for when necessary to act upon.

                Which cocktail best describes you?

                12 Practical Tips To Stay Fit For Christmas

                12 Practical Tips To Stay Fit For Christmas

                Christmas is approaching fast, and lots of people not only tend to ruin their usual diets, but they also gain a few extra pounds. Based on studies, the majority of people tend to gain additional weight during the holiday season that starts at the Thanksgiving Day and ends with the New Year celebrations. Excessive eating is claimed to be the main cause for the additional weight gain, but it is also due to lack of physical activity and exercise.

                A lot of individuals out there tend to set aside their fitness routines during the holidays since they believe that they do not have enough time to perform their workouts. And because they feel guilty after the holiday season, most of the gyms and fitness centers are packed with fresh members. Always bear in mind that you can still enjoy the holidays and stay fit at the same time. If you want to stay fit during the holiday season, especially during Christmas and the New Year’s Eve, here are some useful tips that might help you:

                1. Eat Before Heading Out

                First, it is best that you eat something before heading out to visits, trips or family dinners. By doing so, you will no longer be tempted to eat a lot or overindulge yourself since you have already eaten. Skipping on meals is not a good idea either, because you will only be forced to eat more later.

                2. Select The Treats

                Make sure to select the treats that you eat in a wise manner. You should choose something that you can only enjoy during the holiday season and not something that is readily available all the time.

                3. Avoid Skipping Meals

                Don’t skip meals, especially breakfast! Even though it can be tempting to skip on certain meals, believing that it will make up for the treats you consumed in the previous day, don’t do it because it will only lead to counterproductive results.

                4. Drink With Moderation

                It is best to regulate your drinking since alcohol, coke or other juices will only add more calories to the ones you already eaten!

                5. Be Active

                You should still perform your fitness routine whenever possible and if you can’t do that, simply walk more, park your car some distance away from the store or just use the stairs!

                6. Get Out Of The House

                Make the holidays a family affair and plan outdoor activities where everyone is involved. Even a snowball fight in the backyard will burn a lot of calories and will keep the children entertained.

                7. Don’t Skip Your Strength Workouts

                Always remember to perform your strength training in order to maintain that muscle mass you worked hard to get. You might be tempted to use lightweights and just do some cardio, but you can burn just as many calories by lifting weights. And with all of those extra stakes you had on the holiday meals, you might even gain some extra muscle. And this is much better than gaining some extra fat.

                8. Set Realistic Goals

                You should set realistic exercise objectives. Aim for at least half an hour per day and you will be very happy when you will achieve that. If you plan one hour or more and not achieve it, you will only end up disappointed.

                9. Enjoy Yourself

                Also make sure to set realistic diet plans! Trying to restrain yourself totally from some foods will only make you eat more. Feel free to enjoy the treats that you really love, but in small portions.

                10. Drink A Lot Of Water

                This can satiate your appetite as well as keep you hydrated at all times. And it will also prevent a possible hangover if you overdo it with alcohol.

                11. Eat Less And More Often

                Distribute your meals evenly throughout the day, and do not eat everything at once.  Instead of having 2 enormous meals, have 5 small ones.  Eat your dinner earlier and have a nice walk before going to bed.

                12. Prioritize Your Workouts

                Try to do them early in the morning while everyone else is still sleeping. This way you will also avoid remarks like “Oh, come on! It’s Christmas…”

                So there you go! Twelve simple tips that will help you avoid gaining weight during the winter holidays, but will also allow you to enjoy yourself and have a great time with your loved ones.

                Happy Holidays everyone!
