Movie cocktails: Joker (2019)

Why so serious? You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight? I'll incapacitate the beast with my trick confetti!

The Joker has been subject to more than a few different interpretations over the past 50 years, and now as Joker hits cinemas, we have one more reason to celebrate the Clown Prince Of Crime, the Ace Of Knaves, the Harlequin Of Hate, etc.

Of course, Joaquin Phoenix’s new take on the character is grounded, gritty and down to earth, which is absolutely great for a compelling take on the character, but not fun for a cocktail. So I’ve decided to tackle the character as a whole in this homage, basically leaning less into Joaquin, and more into Cesar (if you don’t know what I mean, search for Batman ‘66 and look for a moustache underneath all that white make-up).

So here’s a purple and green drink set against the backdrop of a bat signal in the sky, because that’s really all it takes.

Mr. J

2oz Boe Violet Gin
3/4oz Limoncello
3/4oz Lime Juice
1/4oz Blue Curacao

Method: Shake the Limoncello, Lime Juice and Blue Curacao with ice and strain into a tall glass filled with more ice. Top up with soda and then add the Violet Gin. Garnish with a flower that may or may not shoot water/Joker Venom.
