Chicago Bar Makes Cocktail With Pig’s Blood



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.”

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.
