Eye Can't Even

You have to wonder how Hawkeye keeps up. I mean, Tony has the best toys, Steve has the Serum, Thor’s an alien, Bruce has anger issues, and even Natasha had super-Soviet-spy indoctrination (and in some portrayals, some biotech augmentation).

He must be a health nut. We ran with the HawkEYE angle. After all, long-range shots require long-range sight. Plus, even in the Avengers Clint needed an eyeball, (talk about tunnel-vision).

It was time to look for an vision-focused libation. (not Vision focused, just… we’ll cover him later). Carrots were the obvious jump, juice being a more manageable format. Despite not actually providing superhuman eyesight, beta-carotene and Vitamin A from carrots can help prevent vision degeneration, which is better than nothing. Other eye-friendly ingredients included berries and green vegetables.

Raspberry syrup and muddled blackberries, along with the famous “cucumber gin”, Hendricks, rounded out the themed ingredients. The blackberry doubles as a garnish ties back to his connection with Black Widow.
