The perfect cocktails to pregame the ‘Endgame’


“Avengers: Endgame” premieres in theaters this weekend. This movie marks the last installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise’s “Infinity Saga.” The film runs for more than three hours, and Marvel fans are already preparing themselves for the deaths of their favorite characters. To gear up for the movie of the year, try one of these Avengers-themed cocktails. These recipes are obviously Tony Stark approved. Just be careful not to drink too much-you won’t want to miss a minute of this already critically-acclaimed movie by running to the restroom.

The Captain America


2 oz. grenadine

2 oz. Creme de Cacao

2 oz. blue curacao

To prepare, pour each ingredient into a glass one at a time and let them settle in order to keep the colors separate. Serve with a tiny flag or sparklers. It doesn’t get much more patriotic than this.

The God of Thunder


2 oz. lingonberry vodka

2 oz. mead

2 oz. Lillehammer Liquor

Mix ingredients and serve over ice. This drink is guaranteed to get you hammered.

The Iron Man

2 oz. Grenadine

2 oz. Drambuie

4 oz. orange juice

2 oz. scotch

Pour into chilled glass, one ingredient at a time. Let settle. The color should resemble that of a tequila sunrise. Garnish with an orange slice.

Hulk’s Gamma Radiation


4 oz. Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum

1 tbsp. of sugar

20 oz. bottle of Mountain Dew

Add the Captain Morgan to a glass with sugar, then add Mountain Dew until the mixture turns green. Be careful not to lose your temper while drinking this cocktail, though.

The Black Widow

2 Shots of Espresso

2 oz. Vodka

2 oz. Kahlua

To make, brew coffee and add the shots. Serve warm. This drink can also be referred to as a Hot Russian.

The Peter Parker


1 oz. Cherry Liqueur

1 oz. Raspberry Liqueur

2 oz. Tequila

½ packet Pop Rocks

Mix cherry liqueur, raspberry liqueur and tequila in a cocktail shaker and pour over ice. Add the pop rocks and stir. This one is sure to get your spidey-senses tingling.

And, finally, don’t forget to pour one out for all the fallen or, well, disintegrated, before you head to the theater (or after, depending how this all plays out).
