THE HULK Signature Cocktail Review
Sitting outside on The Cock & Tail Café deck, overlooking the Indian Ocean and Margate Main Beach is breathtaking! But, if you throw in the famous Hulk cocktail… It becomes minding blowing! Please enjoy this Cludd’s Divine & Dine Cocktail Review.
Oh boy, this one was a doozie of a cocktail to review, so hold on tight!
This insane creation contains Smirnoff 1818 shaken with peach schnapps, Tanqueray gin, Butlers blue Curaçao, Butlers banana liqueur and Red Bull.
This beast of a cocktail is the creation of junior manager Mathew Fenske. After being challenged by a Red Bull representative to come up with a new masterpiece cocktail for the menu, Mathew emerged with this mind bending cocktail which would come to be known as the Hulk.
The Hulk is served in a draught glass. At first glance it sent shivers down my spine. This crazy concoction has an enchanting and ominous green/ blue glow that is inviting and intimidating at the same time.
After summoning up enough courage, I took my fist swig and WOW! The Hulk truly lives up to its name and delivered a massive amount of flavour. Surprisingly, it did not have an overwhelming alcoholic flavour and the Red Bull serves as the perfect vehicle, as it enhanced all the other zests together.
The Peach Schnapps and Banana liqueur merge perfectly together creating a rich tropical fruit blend, while the Curaçao adds a citrus acidity. This is balanced out by the earthiness of the Vodka. While the Gin kicks in, it gives that final zing that has you licking your lips wanting more (and boy did I want more!)
On a closing note, the Hulk epitomizes what a signature cocktail should be and that is, fun, unique, inviting and most of all delicious. The Hulk is an all-round winning cocktail that delivers on big flavor! This is a cocktail that has earned a place on my personal favourites list…
