The Incredible Hulk Drink

By Chef Devan


Updated on

It’s strong. It’s green. It’s the incredible hulk drink!

This wild green cocktail consists of blue Hpnotiq and Cognac mixed together which turns the cocktail a green(ish) hue. But you’ll have to mix the two alcohols in the right amount, otherwise, you’ll end up with something a little more yellow than green.

To be completely honest, I’m a bit disappointed with the final colour of this drink as I was expecting a vibrant, hulk-like green colour. The reality is more of yellowish-green colour…

Is this drink really as green as I had hoped? No.

Is it still tasty? Yes.

Was this drink an excuse to test out glowing green, low-light food photography? Yes!

When mixed with equal parts Hpnotiq and Cognac, the drink turns a little bit green but not nearly as green as in this photo. The photo was taken in the dark with a green light on a very long shutter speed to capture the glowing colour in the dark. Although it doesn’t actually glow green, it was definitely a lot of fun taking this shot!

How Does the Incredible Hulk Drink Taste?

If you like Cognac, then you’ll probably like this drink because Hpnotiq is made with Cognac, french vodka and some exotic fruit juices.

If you’re not into cognac, but love sweet cocktails, then adding extra Hpnotiq in this recipe will yield a cocktail that’s fruity and not too alcoholic.

Incredible Hulk Drink Variations

This cocktail will taste and look much different depending on which ratio you use. Here are a few options to get the perfect drink.

#1. For a Sweet and Fruity Cocktail Lover (The Most Green in Colour)

  • 1/2 oz Hennessy Cognac
  • 1 + 1/2 oz Hpnotiq

If you like sweet cocktails and/or want a more green colour in this cocktail, then add more Hpnotiq than Cognac. Personally, I find this too sweet, but probably because I’m comfortable drinking Henessy on its own. You’ll also get the greenest colour out of all variations.

#2. For the Orignal Recipe (Yellowish-Green in Colour)

  • 1oz Hennessy Cognac
  • 1 oz Hpnotiq

It will still taste quite fruity with a stronger Cognac flavour. Cognac lovers (like me!) will probably still find this a bit too sweet. The colour is more yellowish-green but hey, at least it’s still a little green!

#3. For Cognac Lovers (Yellow with a Hint of Green)

  • 1 + 1/2 oz Hennessy Cognac
  • 1/2 oz Hpnotiq

This is my favourite way to enjoy the cocktail because it’s not too sweet and I personally like the taste of Hennessy much better than Hpnotiq. Although the colour is more yellow than green, I’m willing to make that sacrifice for a better-tasting drink!

Optional Fresh Lime

Although not original, I like adding a squeeze of lime into this drink to balance the sweetness from the Hpnotiq.
