Superhero Sours at the Blind Pig

Jane Ryan | 24/05/2016

For one week only the Bling Pig on Poland Street has created cocktails for their favourite superheroes.

To celebrate Comicon - the geekiest of festivals - the Blind Pig's bar team have created Superhero Sours in honour of all the legendary comic, cartoon, fictional, small screen and big screen superhero stars. 

These fantastically-themed cocktails are only avaliable this week (May 23-29) so dash down to Poland Street for your fix of geeky powers and a side of egg white - even superheroes need their protein shakes after all.

Jack Daniels, Mr Black Coffee liqueur, Fernet, fresh lemon juice and egg white.

Batman Geek Fact: Gotham is in Nottingham

As reported in the Telegraph the first mention of Gotham City came in Batman #4 in 1940, after writer Bill Finger saw the name Gotham Jewelers in a phone book. Recently, Batman writers have admitted the connection to the village Gotham in Nottinghamshire. It's in The Batman Chronicles #6, 1996, when a scheming villain plans to create the city that Bruce Wayne would come to inhabit, saying: “We could call it 'Gotham' after a village in England where, according to common belief, all are bereft of their wits”. 

The Flash

Skittle-washed vodka, Aperol, wham bar syrup, fresh lemon juice and egg white.

The Flash Geek Fact: Psychics can't read The Flash's mind

The Flash's body might move fast but so too can his mind which is also capable of easily outpacing a regular person's. This helps him to figure out the best plan of attack as he races into battle, but also means in the face of one of his greatest foes - Gorilla Grodd who can control minds - this fast-paced hero is safe, his mind  simply runs too fast to be read or controlled.

Fantastic Four

undefined

Gin, Blue Curaçao, fresh lemon juice and egg white.

Fantastic Four Geek Fact: The first comic is worth up to US $800,000 (£540,000)

The Fantastic Four's first appearance - Fantastic Four #1 from 1961 - depending on the condition, can be valued at anything up to $800,000. Only if graded and in top notch condition...but even ungraded copies can fetch a decent amount.
