If Bruce Banner were to write a brief article for his dating profile, I think it would go something like this:
“My name is Bruce. I like long adventures in the middle of nowhere, relaxing sessions of yoga atop of misty secluded mountains, and playing with the latest science gadgets at my friend, Tony’s, place. My perfect date would be at an intimate location with some delicious Thai food or some Asian fusion. I’d prefer not to go “out” anywhere as I tend to turn into a giant green rage monster, and not in a ‘green because I’m jealous when other guys start ogling you’ way. If the waiter so much as forgets the salad dressing or chopsticks I will go Pompeii on his face (see video below). It’s nothing against the waiter, you just really don’t want to mess with the other guy. Oh, and by the other guy I mean my other half. He’s a Hulky beast but he’s a kitten in the sack. A very large, veiny, green love machine. He doesn’t say much aside from the grunts and groans, but I’m told the ladies like a ‘man’ of little words. Don’t let our bulkiness frighten you away, I will protect you – even from crashing helicopters. Yes, in the past I have put a few girlfriends into comas… but that’s because we were reenacting Chris Brown and Rihanna. Wait. Too soon? All of that silliness aside, once you get to know me – you’ll love me. I’m just a moderately laid back, shy kinda guy just looking for a little nerd girl love.“
This post isn’t about good ole’ Brucey though… it’s about the ‘jolly’ green giant. You know the one. Made famous by horrible scientific self-experimentation (Seriously, no scientist in their right mind should have done that test on themselves. Come on Bruce, you make my inner scientist twitch – and not in the ‘oh baby, oh baby’ way either.) and over-abundant anger issues.
Coming up with Hulk in libation form wasn’t too difficult. Knowing that he likes to SMASH, this drink will help you get SMASH(ed) if you know what I mean. I even added some pop rocks to the mix to give it a little more explosive ummph! It may be just me but I think pop rocks should be a staple in everyday life. Appease your inner 10 year-old!
Also, if you want to make this drink for friends, and pull a little prank on them, go ahead and mix in some green food coloring. Then watch them try to mack on that hottie in the corner with a green tongue. It’ll be fun! They may never speak to you again, but if that’s the case, they were the wrong friend anyway, right?
The lineup is as follows: sweet and sour mix, vodka (the good stuff!), sour apple pucker, RedBull, and poprocks. Assembly is easy as well, shake all the booze (sweet and sour, vodka, and pucker) in a shaker, strain into a glass with ice, fill the remainder up with RedBull and top it all off with some watermelon poprocks.
- 3oz of Sour Apple Pucker
- 3oz of Vodka
- 1.5oz of Sweet and Sour Mix
- Green Food Coloring (optional)
- Watermelon PopRocks
- In a shaker combine the first four ingredients. And shake it like it's goin' out of style.
- Prepare a glass with ice, then strain the liquid from the shaker to the glass.
- Fill the remaining space with RedBull.
- Just before drinking, add in some poprocks.
