It’s Thirsty Thursday, and Bookstr is bringing you Booze & Books, our newest weekly feature dedicated to drinking games and booze-book pairings. This week, we’ll be changing it up for all you comic book fans! Given the hype of Avengers: Endgame, we wanted a booze pairing that would get you SUPER lit. (Yes, it’s a superhero pun.) If you think you might need a drink before OR after you see the movie, this is the place to start. Friends, read up & drink up. By the end of this list, these pages won’t be the only thing turnt.
Remember: drink responsibly and read voraciously!

Ingredients: (PER GLASS) 2 ounces Lemon Simple Syrup, 1 ounce Bushmills Irish Whiskey, 1/4 cup crushed ice, 1/4 shot grenadine, lemon slice & cherry for garnish
Okay, maybe let’s change the name to ‘Billionaire Sour.’ But this really is the perfect drink for our favorite billionaire genius playboy philanthropist… a rich man with a bad attitude (and a better heart than his witticisms would let on).
2. Black Widow – Moscow Mule Mocktail

You’ll be RUSSIAN to finish this drink when you remember just how many tears Infinity War made you cry!

Prepare to get hulk SMASHED with a drink almost as powerful as Thanos himself. A few of these, and you too might be left fading from existence…

Ingredients: Orange juice, Limeade or Lemonade, Sprite (or spritzer), Cocktail rimming sugar, Tangerines (garnish)
If you didn’t get the obvious joke about Captain America never getting laid, why don’t you go back and read that drink name for us one more time? Don’t worry—Cap didn’t exactly ‘get it’ either.
7. Spiderman – Mike’s Hard Lemonade

Listen, Tom Holland is a precious baby who looks about twenty-one years too young to be let anywhere near liquor… and it sure was HARD to watch him go!
