Star-Lord (Guardians of the Galaxy mocktail)
Ingredients:1 habanero Pepper 1.5 oz Ginger Beer 3 oz Strawberry Orange Juice 1 oz Pineapple Juice 
Peter Quill, the loveable badass, is the inspiration behind this drink. I wanted to make something that packed a hard punch, but was still kind of sweet and I feel the ingredients convey his character quite well. The spicy habanero plays nicely with the pineapple and the ginger, giving this mocktail a strangely satisfying aftertaste. Check out the video below to see how to make it. If you’d like to add a bit of alcohol, I suggest a shot of tequila!
