What’s mean and green and packs a powerful punch? You might be inclined to say The Hulk, the superhuman character from Marvel Comics. The answer that we’re looking for is the Incredible Hulk, a cocktail as strong as its namesake. Allegedly, this drink also goes by the name of the Green Eyed Monster, although I’ve yet to see anyone call it that myself.
- 2 oz Hpnotiq
- 2 oz Hennessy cognac
In a cocktail shaker with ice, combine the cognac and Hpnotiq. Shake and strain into a small rocks glass with ice. Serve, enjoy, and get smashed!

The Incredible Hulk is one of the most potent drinks being served today. It has a unique flavor that is very popular with the hip-hop community. The hints of fruit flavor in the Hpnotiq help to mellow the strong tones of the Hennessy. In the words of Bruce Banner’s alter ego, “ Hulk smash!” We wouldn’t want it any other way.
History of the Incredible Hulk Cocktail
The drink known as the Incredible Hulk drink was invented at Justin’s, a restaurant owned by Sean Combs, in the early 2000s. At the time, Hpnotiq was still a fairly new liqueur, and the bright blue hue was a huge turn-off to the male demographic. Bartender Victor Alvarez had the brilliant idea of combining Hpnotiq and Hennessy, resulting in a powerful green drink that appealed to everyone. Since then, Justin’s in New York has closed, but the Incredible Hulk has cemented its legacy as one of the great drinks of the modern era.
