Fancy a shot of stomach contents? What about a glass of urine? No? You should – it’s not as bad as it sounds. Or looks.
These cocktails were made by mixologist James Dance. His day job is running Loading, a gaming bar in Falmouth. His other job is creating ghoulish cocktails for events. These six drinks were made for Eat Your Heart Out, the world’s first anatomically correct cake show.
ABOVE: Anyone for a Stool Sample cocktail?
There’s Stool Sample: a mixture of cocoa, coffee liqueur, vodka, and cream liqueurs, strawberry syrup and fudge pieces (it’s all about the consistency, apparently); Sanitizer, a palate-cleansing mix of lychee liqueur, cherry brandy, grenadine, vodka and white rum; Urine, made with whiskey, brandy and limoncello, which comes in its own sample tube and Stomach Contents, a vile-looking tipple, made with vodka and filled with chocolate pieces and Skittles.
ABOVE: Wow your date with this Charred Remains drink
The two most “normal” cocktails are Fat – Kahlua, caramel rum, hazelnut syrup and white rum topped with a set layer of white "fatty" chocolate – and Charred Remains, a spicy Bloody Mary, garnished with bacon.
ABOVE: The Urine cocktail. Mmm, delicious...
James started out creating gothic cocktails to complement gaming events two years ago and was introduced to the team at Eat Your Heart Out last year. “These cocktails are creative – it’s good fun to make them and I like having a side line to running the bar,” says James. “Yes, they’re supposed to be show stopping but they also taste good. Although I don’t put them on our bar menu!”
