The 5 Weirdest Cocktails You Have to Try!

If you’re tired of your boring Martini or you’ve had enough of Negroni, it might be time
to mix up your cocktail regime. These surprising blends will intrigue, delight,
and maybe even disgust you! But you won’t ever forget them once you’ve tried

Whisky Steak Cocktail

This delicious blend plays off the sweet whisky flavour with the salty steak garnish, making for a tasty drink that you’ll want to enjoy again and again!
Made with Monkey Shoulder Scotch, rosemary syrup, and black pepper, the star of
the show is the slither of beef sirloin that will make your mouth water for
more. The perfect pre-meal aperitif.

Sweet and Sour Chicken Toddy

You like cocktails, right? And you like gravy? So why have you never thought to put the two together? Probably because it doesn’t sound like a combination that will work! The Sweet and Sour Chicken Toddy proves you wrong! Made with a chicken stock cube, Tabasco sauce, pineapple juice, and lime juice, this salty, fruity creation is topped with gin to make for a strangely satisfying drink.

Aunt Roberta

With a name like that, how could a drink like this possibly pose a problem? There is much more to Aunt Roberta than meets the eye! Served in an elegant cocktail glass, this mix of brandy, vodka, absinthe, gin, and blackberry liqueur is a drink you should only ever drink once! And very, very slowly!

Wasabi Martini

If you like your Martini with a bit of a kick, you’ll love the Wasabi Martini. If, however, you tend to swerve anything spicy, you might want to leave this one to the
braver cocktail drinkers out there! The typical blend of vodka, lemon juice,
and sugar syrup is supplemented with a dash of wasabi that will knock your
socks off!

Prairie Oyster

Garnishes are often the most interesting part of any drink, and this is certainly the case for the Prairie Oyster. With a whole egg yolk floating around inside your mix of cognac, tomato juice, tabasco sauce, and Worchester sauce, you might be forgiven if you feel a bit queasy before drinking this! Add a dash of vinegar and a little salt and pepper, and you have a hangover cure that will rival your Bloody Mary and make your morning far more interesting!

If you’re in the mood for something different, these cocktails will provide some
inspiration, if not the entire recipe for your unusual cocktail. Drink with
caution – who knows what these beverages will do to your stomach!
