One Chicago bar is really getting behind Halloween this year. We introduce to you, the Werewolves of London cocktail that utilizes pig’s blood as a cocktail component. Pig’s blood isn’t some newfangled hipster liqueur, bitters, or tincture. We’re talking about blood. Like, erythrocytes … from a pig.
When asked about the cocktail, Kinmont’s bartender and creator of the drink Jason Brown, said this: “In an industry that’s so creative, we all need to continually push the envelope and strive to be more unique. I’ve wanted to create a cocktail using blood for some time now, and when I recently re-heard the [Werewolves of London] lyric about a werewolf drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic’s, it was the spark of inspiration I needed to make a tropical drink with a nod to the bloodthirsty nature of these creatures.”
WEREWOLVES OF LONDON
1.5 ounce of Bombay Gin
.5 ounce of Pimms No. 1
2 ounce of house-made coconut syrup
1.5 ounce of fresh, house-squeezed pineapple juice
.5 ounce of pig’s blood
Appearance on the menu each night is dependent on pig’s blood sourcing availability and will be available through Fall.
