The Bull Shot at Cipriani Dolci

Copy Link

Can’t decide if you want soup or vodka? At Cipriani Dolci, you don’t have to. This potent beverage is made with vodka, lemon, hot sauce, Worcestershire and beef consommé.

The Jalapeno Margarita at Cafe Bar

Copy Link

In theory there is nothing wrong here. The combinations are not too wacky or inherently incongruous. Excessive spice mixed with cloying sweetness, however, earned it a spot on this list.

The Ralph Macchiato at Big Daddy's

Copy Link

This boozy milkshake is made with rum, creme de cacao, bananas, coffee liquor, and vanilla ice cream. Big Daddy's could also call this One is Enough.

The Orgasm in a Bowl at Lucky Cheng's

Copy Link

Looks like Scope, tastes like Windex.

The Bacon Martini a the Double Down Saloon

Copy Link

Gout in a glass. If the bacon Martini doesn’t float your boat, this East Village bar also serves “ass juice.” According to the bar’s website, there’s only one rule: you puke…you clean. Yikes.

The Lover's Concerto at Trailer Park Lounge & Grill

Copy Link

This drink is basically a small trash can filled with alcohol. The menu describes it as a “ potent, jumbo frozen fruit margarita with special surprise.” Those special surprises are: Sauza Hornitos tequila, lemonade, Grand Marnier, strawberry concentrate, and Sauza Gold Tequila. $36. (Photo)

The Hennessy Colada at Dallas BBQ

Nothing complements Hennessy's understated elegance like blending it up in a pina colada and topping it with whipped cream. Pop in to any one of Dallas BBQ's many locations to get yours. And if you want to go full Hennessy, get the Hennessy chicken wings on the side.

Jameson Brown Sugar Banana Smoothie at Cocktail Bodega

Copy Link

Just thinking about this drink might give you a hangover. It combines brown sugar, lemon juice, orange juice, bananas, and Jameson.
