Created in 1978, Raven Darkholme, better known as Mystique, is a mutant with the power to shape shift. Often in a state of moral ambiguity, Mystique has been both a member of The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants as well as the X-Men, just to name a few of her many organized affiliations. She is the adoptive mother of the X-Man, Rogue, as well as the biological mother of the X-Man, Nightcrawler and the leader of various Anti-Mutant organizations, Graydon Creed. One of the most popular Mutants in the X-Men universe, Mystique has starred in her own solo comic, appeared in every X-Men animated series, and every official X-Men film. X-Men: Apocalypse will see Raven take on a more pivotal leadership role in the X-Men, against the oldest Mutant, En Sabah Nur.
If that doesn’t warrant a drink named after you, then I don’t know what the hell does! Here is the recipe and the instructions on how to make a Mystique of your very own!
2 oz Coconut Rum
2 oz Blood Orange Vodka
1 oz Simple Syrup
2 Squirts of B’lure cocktail concentrate
2 Squirts of Lemon Juice
Pour your rum, vodka, and simple syrup into a Martini glass. Slowly add the B’lure cocktail concentrate to the glass as you carefully stir. Once the cocktail takes on a Mystique shade of blue, add your lemon juice and stir once again. The citric acid in the lemon juice will react with the B’lure and the drink will become purple.
That’s right folks this is a drink you can serve up that actually morphs like it has mutant powers. Yes, it is incredibly badass and damn tasty if I say so myself.
