Cocktails across the world are getting wackier, so let’s look at some of the craziest.
If the name of this cocktail doesn’t make your stomach churn, the key ingredient will. Created in 1973 in Canada, this has its own club and drinking rules that state the severed toe must touch the drinker’s lips. Be warned – if you accidentally swallow the toe, you will be liable for a hefty fine!
Chicken Fried Bloody Mary
This is a meal of a cocktail found in Milwaukee and involves customers creating a meal out of their drink. This meal in one is not cheap; however, it does include a whole fried chicken along with a host of other ingredients, including vodka, tomatoes, celery and cheese.
Above & Beyond
Full of innovative ingredients, including artisan coffee, oak smoke and patchouli, this is one of the most adventurous cocktails available in London. Combining rum, sherry, Fernet-Branca, crème de banane and mandarin bitters, it arrives with an inflated balloon. When popped, this balloon releases a bag of Guatemalan worry dolls and a delicious burst of fresh forest aromas!

Ridiculous Ultimate Caesar
Another cocktail food combination from Bermuda is made with vodka, Clamato, Tabasco and Worcestershire sauce. This beverage also comes garnished with Italian sausage, chicken wings, oyster, lobster claw, shrimp, mini wagyu burger, lobster tail, seared scallops and three ounces of Wagyu sirloin, so it is perfect for sharing!
Fish & Chip Shop Margarita
Found in London, this classic Mexican drink is given a twist by adding a miniature version of the much-loved British classic. With a base of Ocho Blanco tequila, sugar syrup and saline solution, ingredients including lime and pea shrub, plaice bitters from the neighbouring fish and chip shop, Balkan vodka, more tequila and sugar syrup are added with a heavy pinch of salt and pepper. To finish it off, sea salt and vinegar are added to the rim.
Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife
This secret off-menu drink served in Atlanta features some interesting ingredients. Combining rum, chocolate stout, mint-flavoured Italian liqueur Branca Menta and two kinds of bitters, the cocktail’s surprise ingredient is a whole smoked baby octopus that clings to the rim of the glass.
