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.

Bummed that DC hasn't produced any significant Booster Gold news in months? Drown your sorrows with a cocktail, specifically a Booster Gold!
Christopher Bevins posted his Booster Gold recipe on KindredCocktails.com, where the drink is described as a mixture of "Apple brandy, Pimm's No. 1 Cup, Grapefruit bitters, India Pale Ale, Lime juice, Orgeat, Grapefruit peel."
Elsewhere, Danni Danger posted her ingredients list for her Booster Gold cocktail on Twitter: "Hennessy, pineapple vodka, ginger beer, lemon twist, blueberries." Danni didn't give a complete recipe, but she did offer this picture of the finished product:
Kids, get your parent's permission before going through their liquor cabinets to make your own Booster Gold cocktails.

Last week's Teen Titans #6 introduced us to Booster Gold Coffee, sold via vending machine. Name brand coffee is only the most recent beverage venture for Booster. In addition to Sundoller Coffee, previous drinks endorsed by Booster include DC's best-selling Soder-Cola, Enlongated Man's preferred Gingold Soda, and Lit Beer. Outside of comic books, Booster has been known to shill beverages such as Booster's Super Soda seen in Batman: the Brave and the Bold video game.
For those longing to taste Booster's wares, Darkseid's Draperies has posted the following suggestion:
My friends and I just invented a drink we are calling a Booster Gold. It's amazing and tastes like a creamsicle. It's about half a can of sprite, a splash of pinnacle cake vodka, and a splash of orange juice.
As a teetotaler, I have absolutely no way to judge whether that would taste good or not. But I have to say that I think a drink named after Booster Gold is an idea too good to miss.

Late yesterday, Booster booster Morgenstern drew my attention to the following text and picture posted by Kevin Maguire (@maguirekevin) via twitter:
I'm sitting here working at Starbucks and all I can see is ass. http://yfrog.com/gzdthoaj
It seems a shame that an artist as good as Kevin Maguire has been reduced to serving coffee at Starbucks, but I guess times are tough. Kevin may only see ass, but I see something far better: Oberon and Booster Gold (with collar)! Presumably, this is work from the upcoming DC Retroactive: Justice League of America - the 90s due in August. I don't care what Kevin thinks of his own work; I like what I see.
