The Xander Cage: A xXx: Return of Xander Cage Inspired Cocktail

The Xander Cage is a cockail inspired by xXx: Return of Xander Cage 2geekswhoeat.com #Cocktail #MoviesWe have a secret. We love action flicks. The more explosions the better. So when we heard that Vin Diesel was returning to the xXx series with xXx: Return of Xander Cage we were pretty excited! The third movie in the xXx series, xXx: Return of Xander Cage brings back not only Vin Diesel but Samuel L. Jackson. In addition to bringing back the original cast, newcomers include Donnie Yen (of Rogue One fame) and Ruby Rose (Orange is the New Black).

When coming up with this cocktail, we really challenged ourselves because we wanted a red cocktail but didn’t want to use grenadine. With all the guaranteed explosions that come smoke, therefore, we knew we wanted a smoky base spirit. We didn’t think scotch was thematically correct so we went with mezcal. The rest, as they say, is history.

So here is the fun part for you (besides making this delicious cocktail). We are giving away 2 pairs of tickets along with a prize pack to a screening of xXx: Return of Xander Cage. The screening will be held on Wednesday, January 18th at Tempe Marketplace. Winners should arrive at 6:20 to guarantee their seat. Good luck and Cheers!
