- Booster Gold

Booster booster Marty directed me to this image on The App That Used To Be Twitter:
The whatever-it-is that-we're-calling-tweets-now implies that cocktail menu comes from "the #BlueBeetle after party", whatever that was. As you can (barely) see at the bottom of the list, there's a drink there named for Ted Kord's best buddy, Booster Gold.
The ingredients read "Mezcal, Ancho PiÃ±a Shrub, Grapefruit, Lime, Close Honey, Angostura." Full disclosure here: I'm an absolute teetotaler. I haven't had an alcoholic beverage since the Olympic Games were held in Atlanta, Georgia. (It was a Tom Collins.) So my working knowledge of cocktails is a little rusty, and I have no idea what that tastes like, much less what some of those ingredients even are.
But my Google skills are strong. Allowing for typos — "close" should be "clove" — and a brand-sponsored tequila substitution, it seems those ingredients combine to make what Difford's Guide calls a Mercado Roma and The Educated Barfly calls an Oaxacanite. Here's a picture of a good-looking presentation of those drinks on Instagram:
It's certainly the right color.
As for whether this hints at any role Booster might play in the movie... Â¯\_(ãƒ„)_/Â¯ . I guess we'll find out when the film hits theaters on August 18.
Thanks for the drink, Marty.
