Learn everything on which Vodka to choose


The backbone of many cocktails, vodka provides a neutral spirit base that absorbs and highlights the other ingredients. It's 1.5 oz here - enough to give the cocktail a kick without setting your mouth on fire like a dragon. Less, and you might as well be drinking juice; more, and you might forget you’re not Spiderman.

Blue Curacao

This vibrant blue liqueur doesn't just give the cocktail its superhero color; it also infuses a hint of orange flavor. If omitted, your drink would lose its signature hue, looking less like a Spiderman and more like a regular Joe.

Cranberry Juice

2 oz of cranberry juice brings a fruity tartness that adds depth to the cocktail. Less would make the drink overly sweet, more could turn it into a tartness overload. No cranberry? Try pomegranate juice for a similar tart kick.

Lemon Juice

0.5 oz of lemon juice is like adding a squeeze of sunshine. It's sour, it's bright, and it balances the sweetness like a tightrope walker. Skipping it would be like Spiderman without his web–it just wouldn’t swing!

This sweet and sticky syrup is your cocktail's spider-sense, alerting your taste buds to the sweetness ahead. Half an ounce is all it takes to tie the flavors together. Without it, the drink could become one-dimensional.

Ice Cubes

Ice is the unsung hero here, chilling the mixture to perfection. The amount isn't specified because it's assumed you're not an ice sculptor needing precise measurements. Too little, and the drink is lukewarm; too much, and you're in the Arctic.

Maraschino Cherry

Who doesn't like a cherry on top? It's the final garnish that adds a touch of class and a hint of cherry flavor. No cherry? No panic! A twist of orange peel could also do the trick, adding some aromatic zest.

Add your ingredients to the shaker first, then ice. Fill it up to ¾ of its capacity to ensure enough space for shaking. Hold the shaker with both hands (one on the top and one on the bottom) and shake vigorously. The shake should come from your shoulders, not your wrists.

Place your chosen strainer on top of the shaker or mixing glass, ensuring a secure fit. Pour the cocktail into a glass through the strainer, which will catch solid ingredients and ice. If double straining, hold the fine mesh strainer between the shaker and the glass.
