Comic-Con themed cocktail lets you drink like a superhero

Just in time for Comic-Con, Punch Bowl Social is serving up a Marvel-ous green drink that gives a nod to The Hulk. Alas, Mark Ruffalo is not included.


Consider it a form of culinary cosplay.

Every year, restaurants and bars in San Diego — especially in the Gaslamp and East Village — dress up their dishes and drinks with a Comic-Con themed flair.

One cocktail that will have you sipping like a superhero is the Dr. Banner’s Wellness Elixir at Punch Bowl Social. Named for the Marvel character that turns into the The Hulk, this appropriately green libation is made with San Diego’s own Malahat Spiced Rum, Rum Haven Coconut Rum, coconut milk, fresh lime juice, Coco Lopez coconut cream and matcha, finished off with a garnish of fresh mint.

Alas, Mark Ruffalo not included, but nice and over the top, just like our favorite pop culture convention. (For a list of other Comic-Con specialty creations, check out our roundup in The Dish.)
