So I was looking up some new cocktails to try and I now regret doing it a lot. Anyway, here is a list of some specific and more general cocktails that you find a little odd…
10. Monkey Gland
This odd-sounding drink is actually pretty normal, but it’s namesake is nothing but normal. In France in the 1920’s there was a Russian “Doctor” who popularized the grafting of monkey testes to humans to improve “virility” which almost makes all of those Chinese dudes snorting Rhino horn powder look sane.
In a hotel in the far Northern reaches of Canada you can order a very “special” type of drink… So apparently a dude lost a foot to frostbite and to mark the occasion they kept it in a jar of bourbon, sometime later someone came up with the idea of putting it in the bottom of a glass and drinking the drink, letting the “sour” toe touch the lips. Yeehaw?
8. Beer Bourbon BBQ Cocktail
I understand that sometimes the idea of combing things we love can be attractive, but this is a case of taking that a little too far. If you ever find yourself watering-down barbecue sauce to make it more fun to drink, you might want to take a few moments to reflect on some other choices that you have made recently…
Much like it’s cousin above, this drink is an abomination of several nice things thrown together to make a monstrosity – forgive me please if you think orange juice should go with finely-chopped onions, honestly…
6. Diamonds are Forever
This is actually a not-so-bad sounding drink, but it comes with $1347 price tag, which makes it, for me, more disgusting that the frostbitten toe drink.
5. Roe Your Boat
Yeah okay, this one is really just for the people who think, you know what I want with my salty, gross fish eggs? Chocolate liquor. Well, okay, here you go.
4. Bloody Mary (…and friends…)
To many the Caesar is just a variant of the Bloody Mary, but let’s get this straight, clam juice is a whole level of complexity above and beyond beef broth…
It’s cola and wine, do I need to explain this?
I got nothing.
I hope you hated this list!
