This high-octane drink combines the clear, robust flavors of vodka with the citrus notes of orange liqueur, all energized by the sweet and tart taste of an energy drink. The resulting mixture produces a lively and refreshing experience, typically served in a highball glass to accommodate its generous volume. The color scheme of the cocktail, while not necessarily green as the name might suggest, plays into the theme of the drink, often taking on a hue from the ingredients that can mirror the glowing power of its namesake's ring. This cocktail can be a great conversation starter at parties, especially among fans of the superhero genre, due to its name and striking appearance.
