Food & Drink

Everything worth eating and drinking at Comic-Con

Right now in San Diego, an army of Batmans, Supermans, and Quailmans are geeking out at the world's largest nerd party, Comic-Con. Since they need to fuel up in between comic book signings, booths and local SD shops have created an awesome spread of themed refreshments to get them through the weekend.

You shouldn't miss out on the fun just because you're stuck at work, so we rounded up a few of the best Comic-Con foods and cocktails for your perusal. Sorry if these make you hungrier than Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael.

Nerdy-as-hell cocktails

San Diego's Searsucker mixed up a set of beautifully nerdy cocktails for the Con crowd to enjoy all week long. You can go dark with the Darth Vader or Lex Luthor, heroic with the Captain America or Green Lantern, or revive yourself from all those panels with the Walking Dead.

"Chewie" cookies

Because they're all about options, The Cravory baked a trio of cookies for Comic-Con. That green treat at the bottom is obviously The Hulkinator, while the chocolate chip (and marshmallow and caramel) cookie above it is the Chewbacca Treat. At the very top is the Kryptonite, a super chocolatey cookie that needs to be colored green to truly resemble Superman's radioactive rocks. Someone fix it, quickly!

Sharknado-style refreshment

Toast Tara Reid's finest work with The Blind Burro's Shark Bite cocktail, a blend of Espolon Blanco, Blue Curaçao, pineapple juice, lime, and shark gummy worms that'll make you more nonsensical than Sharknado itself.

Batman-based libations

If you're looking to get weird (like, hijacking school buses weird), test out Encore's Joker Juice. Or, if you prefer to fear your drinks, they have a Kryptonite cocktail.

Infinite donuts

Unlike the actual Infinity Gauntlet, wearing the Infinity Bear Claw by Donut Bar won't give you unlimited powers. But it will make you the only person at Con wearing a donut on their hand. (Probably.)

Game of Thrones-style sipper

Courtesy of the Wired Cafe, these White Walker drinks will cool you down… but hopefully not so much that you start freezing babies into evil icicle warriors.
