Watchmen Inspired Cocktails, Including the “Full Frontal Manhattan”

So after years of development hell Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ “unfilmable” timeless graphic novel, Watchmen, is now a major motion picture. You’ve waited for this half your life, and Zack Synder has delivered and delivered well. Maybe it’s time you get off the Internet message boards and take a moment to celebrate. James Sime over at Isotope comics plans to do just that, and as a toast, he’ll be drowning his joy in a bevy of Watchmen-inspired cocktail recipes. Like a true alcoholic (just kidding, James), he shares with us his pop culture comic booky recipes that includes everything from Silk Spectre to a Full Frontal Manhattan:

Full Frontal Manhattan

Those who have already seen the movie or read the book will want to start their boozing off with this tribute to Dr. Manhattan’s… (ahem)… full-frontal blueness!

2 oz Bombay Sapphire Gin
1 oz Hiram Walker Blue Curacao
1/2 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
3 dashes Regan’s Orange Bitters

Shaken and served up. The Isotope staff prefers this cocktail to be served with a little backlighting for best blue glow effect.


The Comedian

Here’s a great follow-up to that blue-hued cosmic adventure… a drink of pure nihilism! But be warned, this one is sure to rough you up a bit, just like the drink’s namesake, The Comedian.

2 oz Yukon Jack Canadian Whiskey
Dr. Pepper

Fill a tall glass with ice and feel free to go heavy on the Yukon Jack. Top off with as little Dr. Pepper as you dare. Garnish with a slice of lemon and a drop of blood in honor of that Watchmen smileyface button you’ve been bootlegging.


Silk Spectre

Sweet, spicy, and packing a punch. What more could you want from the lady in vinyl?

1 1/2 oz Patron XO Cafe
1/2 oz Hiram Walker Creme De Cacao Dark
1 oz heavy cream

Combine the Patron XO Cafe and Hiram Walker Creme de Cacao Dark with ice and shake. Pour over ice, top off with heavy cream, and finish with a dash of cinnamon.


To see more Watchmen-inspired cocktails, head on over to Isotope Comics, and if you’re ever in San Francisco, drop by and say hello to James.
