If you’ve already mastered expert-level cocktails at home and are looking for even more of a drinking adventure, then you have to try these weird and wacky libations. We’re talking about drinks that are infused with insect venom, mixed with cough syrup and even garnished with frozen eyeballs. If you’re looking to get weird at your next happy hour, visit one of these five bars to try some of the more bizarre drinks on Earth.
Bull’s Eye Margarita
If the dissection experiment in middle school biology made you squeamish, then run in the other direction immediately. Faro Tapas, the restaurant in Australia’s Museum of Old and New Art, serves a black Margarita that is literally eye-popping. The gothic libation is made with tequila, mezcal, lime and charcoal, which gives it its brooding color. The glass is rimmed with black salt and garnished with a frozen bull’s eye. The staff at Faro Tapas instruct guests to sip the cocktail as fast as possible because they don’t want the eye to start melting its eyeball flavors into the drink. How’s that for an aperitif to whet your appetite?
