I am very excited today my lovely readers. Because do you know what’s coming up VERY soon? No, I don’t mean my trip to Atlanta. Or Thanksgiving. I’m am so very excited for November 25th! And nope, it’s not because I’m looking for some good Black Friday deals. Have you guessed yet? If the title of this post did not give it away, or the intro blurb, then you must not be a Gilmore Girls fan.  That’s right! After 9 long years off of our televisions, Gilmore Girls is back on November 25th!!! There will be a four hour special on Netflix so we can find out what’s going on with our favourite Stars Hollow residents! And not so favourite (go away, Dean). Who else is excited?!

Bucky Barnes Cocktail (The Brooklyn Cocktail) – Marvel Cocktail Series

The Bucky Barnes Brooklyn Cocktail is the next instalment of my Marvel Cocktails Series. Bucky’s cocktail is the classic Brooklyn, an old classic that’s made a big comeback. The Brooklyn Cocktail is a delicious blend of rye whiskey, extra dry vermouth, and maraschino liqueur, it has a smooth, dry bite that will keep you coming back for more. Just like Bucky, it is less popular than it’s well known counterpart (i.e. Manhattan/Captain America) but it’s just as worth bringing back!

Bucky Barnes, where do I start?! Bucky (aka The Winter Soldier) is probably my all time favourite Marvel character. He’s just a kid from Brooklyn with greatness inside him, a greatness not even he could see, and this is true whether you’re looking at comic Bucky or MCU Bucky. Let’s look at MCU Bucky though, because I  love the arc The Russo brothers gave him and how he was depicted. Bucky, a kid from Brooklyn, grew up taking care of his chronically sick best friend who was more like a brother, and while Bucky may have been physically stronger than Steve, Bucky always saw a greatness in Steve and knew he was capable of amazing things.

Captain America Slushy Cocktail for Civil War - a red, white and blue layered slushy cocktail to celebrate the release of Captain America: Civil War and to show I am firmly #TeamCap!!

Today is the day!!! Captain America: Civil War release day! Well in the UK it is anyway, sorry America! Yep, that’s right – us little British folk get the new Captain America movie before actual America! That’s what you get for throwing our tea in the harbour! Just kidding, I love y’all really! We seem to get most Marvel movies about a week before the US, I’m not too sure why but I’m certainly not complaining. Because I LOVE Marvel and the sooner the better, especially when it’s my boo, Steve Rogers! I couldn’t let the occasion pass without a cocktail in his honour, particularly when this film is Civil War – all kinds of crazy shit is going to go down and so I’m supporting my boy the only way I know how, creating a recipe in his name! The Captain America Slushy Cocktail is me shouting loud and clear that I am firmly in the #TEAMCAP camp!

A delicious and intense cocktail inspired by Marvel’s Elektra. She’ll kick your ass, and so will this cocktail! It’s a blood orange, blackcurrant and aniseed Mezcal Margarita, made with Mezcal instead of tequila. Followed by a Mezcal shot chaser! It’s certainly not one for the feint of heart!

This post is *Spoiler Free!* That means I will not give anything away for season 2 of the Netflix series of Marvel’s Daredevil.

Whether you’ve been watching Daredevil on Netflix or not, you can’t have missed all the talk about it! Season 2 recently aired and it seems like the whole world has been binge watching it, I know I did! Season 2 introduced a couple of new characters from the comics, one of them being Elektra. I promised this post would be spoiler free so I won’t go into much detail as to why, but I wasn’t that happy with how they handled her characterisation and story arc, so I decided to make a cocktail inspired by all her awesomeness and celebrate her character, in the form of a Mezcal Margarita
