Spiderman Inspired Mocktail; because with great powers comes great responsibilities
Alright so if you have been following along, I’m sure you remember that Spiderman is a favorite in our house. And he has been a favorite even before the tiny humans arrived and there were any big screen notions about the amazing Spiderverse.
Since Peter Parker is the first Spiderman I came to know and love, he is the first thing I think about when I hear Spiderman or Spidey. To me, Spiderman will always be red and blue Peter Parker. His relatability as a teenager just trying to get by is why he is so well known and loved and that’s not different in our house. Because well, life is hard. Spidey is my youngest’s favorite Spiderman as well so making a Spiderman inspired non alcoholic drink was a must.
Is Miles Morales as Spin or Gwen Stacey as Ghost Spider more your speed from the Spiderverse? Or, like me, do you have multiple Spiderman enthusiasts each with their own favorite? No worries, check out this Miles Morales Inspired Mocktail and this Ghost Spider inspired Mocktail to bring the web slining crew full circle.
The spiderverse is amazing and opens up so many possibilities for our favorite Marvel characters and the Marvel Universe as a whole. That being said, there is something special and maybe even a little comforting about the original too. I love that the Spiderverse allows for the original to be alongside the new generation. Even if it’s in a different format then I am used to seeing. Maybe it’s just me getting old but nostalgia always plays at my emotions!
Create a Spiderman Inspired non alcoholic drink to enjoy and pick which version of Spiderman you want to enjoy! Spiderman and his amazing friends, Spiderman as an avenger, or Spiderman in the Spiderverse. The possibilities seem limitless!
