7 Delicious Cocktails To Serve Anyone Who Loves Batman

These cocktails were originally mixed up for a Batman & Robin-themed "bro-dal" shower menu. You can check out the full party plan here.

1. The Bruce Wayne

Something magical happens to iced coffee when you shake it with whiskey and maple syrup: You get a lovely, creamy head of foam on top — almost like a Guinness — that disguises the dark depths below (which contain enough caffeine to power any nocturnal superhero).

Serves 1

4½ oz. black iced coffee
2 oz bourbon

¼–½ oz. maple syrup (depending how sweet you like it)

Brew a pot of coffee and let chill until cold, or dilute cold-brew coffee concentrate with an equal amount of cold water. Measure all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake thoroughly, until chilled and foamy. Strain into glass over ice.

2. The Boy Wonder

This drink, the love child of a tequila sunrise and a mimosa, makes a perfect brunch-appropriate sidekick to the Bruce Wayne. The measurements are just a guideline; feel free to add as much champagne as you like.

Serves 1

3 oz. orange juice
2 oz. sparkling wine
1 oz. silver tequila
Splash grenadine or maraschino cherry juice

Pour tequila, juice, and sparkling wine into a champagne flute and stir. Tilt glass slightly and slowly pour grenadine down the side so that it settles at the bottom. Garnish with a lime slice.

3. The Joker

Serves 1

3 oz. grape Jolly Rancher-infused vodka (see below)

¼ oz. lime juice

Seltzer

To make the infused vodka: Unwrap 10–12 purple Jolly Ranchers and put them in a sealable jar or bottle. Add 1½ cups of vodka, seal, shake, and let sit overnight or until candy fully dissolves when you shake the bottle. Chill until ready to use.

Add 3 oz. infused vodka and lime juice to a Collins glass with ice, stir, and fill with seltzer. Garnish with lime slice.

4. The Poison Ivy

This herbaceous cocktail is pretty, but watch out — it packs a punch.

Serves 1

2 oz. gin
1 oz. St. Germain
¾ oz. fresh-squeezed lime juice
3 sprigs fresh basil
2 sprigs fresh mint

Muddle all ingredients well in a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice, shake vigorously for at least 20 seconds (this will help break up the herbs and give the drink its color and flavor), and strain into a coupe glass.

5. The Mr. Freeze

Freezing the pineapple juice beforehand takes a little planning, which any super-villain could tell you is worth the effort: You'll end up with a super-thick, borderline-spoonable treat. Multiply the recipe and freeze accordingly for your number of guests; you should be able to blend a few drinks' worth at once.

Serves 1

6 oz. pineapple juice

1½ oz. white rum

1½ oz. blue Curaçao

3–4 blue raspberry Jolly Rancher candies (optional)

The night before making: Divide pineapple juice between sections of an ice cube tray and freeze until solid.

Crush Jolly Rancher candies with a mortar and pestle, or seal in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin or another heavy kitchen tool. Empty "crystals" onto a small plate. Rub the rim of a margarita or hurricane glass with a lime slice and roll it in the candy crystals to coat, then chill glass in fridge or freezer while you blend the cocktail.

Combine frozen pineapple juice cubes, rum, and blue Curaçao in a blender, pulse to break up the frozen juice, and blend until smooth. Pour into glass. Serve with a straw (and maybe a spoon).

6. The Catwoman

Black currant liqueur is the secret ingredient in a drink that's dark, sophisticated, and bittersweet enough to suit Selina Kyle.

Serves 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).

7. The Alfred

Lauren Zaser / BuzzFeed Life

The perfect low-key, low-alcohol drink to serve your employer in the afternoon if you know he'll need to be alert later. That said, you can always ramp up the booze factor with a nice British gin, if you feel so inclined.

Serves 8

2 cups Pimm's No. 1
3 cups brewed black tea, chilled
2 12-oz. bottles ginger beer
, like Reed's or Gosling's

1 lemon
1 orange
6 sprigs fresh mint
, plus more for glass garnishes

Wash lemon and orange and slice them into thin rounds. Add citrus, Pimm's and tea to a large pitcher, stir, and keep in the fridge at least one hour or until chilled. To serve, stir in ginger beer, pour into glasses filled with ice, and garnish with mint and a lemon slice.

Optional: If you'd like a boozier drink, add 1 oz. of gin to your glass before serving, and then stir in the Pimm's mixture.
