After a bit of a hiatus Spidey will be returning to the big screen on July 3rd for the highly anticipated “The Amazing Spider-Man.” And to welcome Spider-Man back I think it only makes sense to toast to his return with a few Spider-Man themed cocktails. Anyone up for a “Lucid’s Lawless Lizard” or the equally enticing “Marvel Mojito” made using Flor de Caña rum? If so, then you definitely don’t have to wait until July 3rd to break out the Midori, Frangelico, and a few more Lushworthy delights to whip up these cocktails dedicated to Marvel’s leading man.
