½ oz. Hpnotiq
1 oz. Blue Curacao
½ oz. Bacardi 151

A note from the creator:
Jace, being the most sought after Planeswalker, is one that had much thought put into his cocktail creation. Jace has control over the mind and to symbolize this I used the idea of Hypnosis, an ability to delve deep within the conscience and sometimes allow it to be manipulated. The idea of Hypnosis made me think of one ingredient, Hpnotiq. The Hpnotiq adds a very flavorable taste to the cocktail along with just enough Sweet & Sour to give it that bit of tang it needs. Given the fact also that his power is over the mind, I chose to also add some Bacardi 151 to add to its potency.
This is the first post of a series of MTG inspired drinks, created and photographed by the talented Spirit Cocktails. Check out their page for more Planeswalker cocktails, as well as more information about Jace’s character.
The McFly (Back to the Future shot set)
Tab (for 1955)
Pepsi (for 2015)
Root Beer (for 1885)
Directions: Take 12 shot glasses and put them in two rows of 6 shots. Fill the first 4 shots 1/2 with Tab and 1/2 with Whiskey, next four (4) 1/2 with Pepsi and 1/2 with Whiskey, and final 4 shots 1/2 with Root Beer and 1/2 with Whiskey. Then layer the shots with Bacardi 151 and set those shots on fire* creating the flame threads the DeLorean leaves behind after she hits 88 miles per hour. Extinguish the shots and time travel!
