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?

                Bat’s all, folks.

                8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

                On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

                Advertising

                Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

                1. Smart Door Locks

                A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

                2. Smart Kitchen Tools

                Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

                3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

                If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

                4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

                These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

                5. Nest Thermostat

                This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

                6. Smart Lighting

                Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

                7. Google Chromecast Ultra

                Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

                8. Canary

                This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
