Let’s be honest here: Mercutio is tumblr’s baby. If there was a poll on favourite Shakespeare characters, he’d win by a landslide. So we had to make a cocktail for him, but we were also very specific about what we wanted to make it suit the character. It had to contain enough hard alcohol to put you in insta-party mode, but it also had to be pretty damn sweet. It had to give off a joyful and incredibly queer vibe while being colourful as fuck. We pondered and pondered, and then it hit us. Now we proudly present: The Mercutio.
Pomegranate juice (red)
Apricot juice (orange)
Mango juice (yellow)
Woodruff syrup (green)
Powerade “Mountain Blast” sports drink (blue)
Blackcurrant juice (purple)
Rhubarb juice (pink)
2 cl vodka
2 cl Bacardi Razz
4 cl Cointreau
Make ice cubes from the various different juices; obviously you can use different flavours so long as the colours match up, but these go well together. (Handy hints: the woodruff syrup needs to be mixed with water, but not too much, else it will turn out turquoise rather than green; the blackcurrant juice works best when mixed with a bit of Powerade and a bit of water, to become more purple rather than dark purple-red; if you don’t like Powerade, Curaçao is an alternative for the blue bits.)
Stack the ice cubes in a tall glass so that they make a rainbow (i.e. in the order they’re given above). Top up with the alcohol - pre-chilled, ideally, so that the ice takes longer to melt. Ta-daah! Drinkable, alcoholic rainbow. Go crash a Capulet party with your boyfriend and the Montacrew.
This man, is by far the most creative of all. He has a way to make magic out of thin air and he’s done it from the day he was born in the South Bronx to now! He makes people dream bigger then they ever knew they could (me included) and he blazes the trails, break rules and carves grooves where before him there were none!
