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. 

The Dark Jack Rises


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


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.
