Hump Day Happy Hour

Sip Your Way To Superhuman Strength

Popular in the '40s, revived in the '60s and revamped in the '70s, Green Lantern hits theaters this Friday. People's Sexiest Man Alive (and we'd agree) Ryan Reynolds stars—in a spandex suit—as the first human ever selected to join the intergalactic peace squadron known as Green Lantern Corps.

Comic book blockbusters may not be your bag, but if Reynolds isn't enough of a draw, then husbands, boyfriends and kids will likely coerce you to the theater. So get into the Green Lantern spirit with this week's "Green Intensity," a drink with enough kick to render you a superhero in no time.

Peppery basil and spicy chili make "Green Intensity," well, intense! But don't be intimidated. The gin and lime balance out the cocktail for a drink that's as delicious as Reynolds's washboard abs.

"Green Intensity"


5 basil leaves

1 Serrano chile or jalapeño, sliced

2.5 oz. Grey Goose Vodka

0.75 oz. lime juice

0.75 oz simple syrup


Muddle basil leaves and one chile slice with lime juice. Add simple syrup, vodka and ice. Shake and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with another chile slice.

"Green Intensity" was created by the mixologists at STK in Las Vegas.
