Welcome back everyone to another pre-release drink series! This time, we’re covering the (absurdly large) main cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Short and (bitter, really) sweet, we ask ourselves, what would Ultron drink?
NO STRINGS (ULTRON)
- 1 jigger (2 oz, 1/4 cup, or 50 mL) wormwood-gentian grand bitters (Braulio Amaro preferred)
- Set out a 2.5 oz shot tumbler
- Pour jigger
- That’s it this time.
Everyone creates the thing they dread.
Ultron, as unleashed by Tony Stark, is a pure and undiluted force of human hating. In a case of Zeroth law gone wrong (warning: TVTropes link), that guy has all of Stark’s paranoia and pragmatism and jaded bitterness, with absolutely none of the compassion. Which means for the human race, this guy is angry, bitter, and out to hurt, with nothing in the way.
If served with the End of the Path, it should be made with the same amaro/bitters, so as to be clearly derivative. It’s worth noting in their homeland, all amaro are drunk neat, so this is actually still pretty good if you have a craving for bitter on your palate.
