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

      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.

              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.
