Rob Bresser’s Drink of the Month – June 2007

For those that don’t know, the Incredible Hulk is a Marvel Comics superhero.  This summer, Marvel is running a much anticipated story-arch, World War Hulk, that features the Hulk taking on pretty much everyone else in the Marvel U.  In honor of this event, both because we are comic fanatics and raging drunks, we present to you…The Incredible Hulk.

The drink is made by mixing equal parts of Hpnotiq and Hennessy.  Hpnotiq is a blue fruity liquer made of vodka, cognac, and fruit juices.  Hennessy is a noticeably brown cognac .  When you mix the two together, you end up with a powerful green drink that will knock your socks off.  Trust me, I know this from experience.  I’ve actually lost friends over this drink.

According to wikipedia, the drink was created at a Hpnotiq launch event by a restaurant bartender at Sean Combs’ New York restaurant, Justin’s. A Hpnotiq employee noticed many women but few men drinking his company’s liquor, because the men considered the blue, fruity drink to be too effeminate. Victor Alvarez, a bartender at the restaurant, mixed Hennessy with Hpnotiq to dilute the fruity flavor, resulting in a green beverage that quickly became a hit.

Drink with caution, Hulk will smash!
