Badass Beverage: The Crimson Bolt For James Gunn’s SUPER

Mix up this cocktail before hitting the theater for James Gunn’s superhero weirdness, SUPER.

Super, James Gunn’s long-awaited follow-up to Slither opens in limited release today, and that sounds like as good a reason to lift a glass as any. And so we bring you a Badass Beverage tie-in, named after Rainn Wilson’s powerless superhero in the film: The Crimson Bolt.

Like the movie’s Bolt our drink had to be red, and it would be helpful if it hit you like the pipe wrench that The Crimson Bolt wields in the film. And like Super, our Crimson Bolt is sweet enough to almost make you forget how fucked up you’re getting.

The Crimson Bolt
3oz vodka
3oz cherry brandy
3oz orange juice
3 oz cranberry juice

Serve in a tall glass with crushed ice. Throw a cherry on top if you’re into that kind of thing. Drink four of these and then go see Super.
