What's in the name? Well, some say lots of fun
Quirkier the name, more fascinating these drinks appear to be. Here's a quick sneak peak into some of the wackiest names of alcoholic drinks which I have come across.

Eternal Fire Storm

Prepared by combining and mixing apple juice, Tequila, Galliano and strawberry this drink looks much like a fire storm but ironically it is served best with ice rocks on a warm day. The resultant hue, of orange and red, after mixing all the ingredients resembles the fiery inferno which led to such a strange name for this wonderful cocktail.

This is neither a dare nor a kinky fantasy of some crazy mind. This is a rather popular cocktail drink in many pubs and bars which can just titillate your imagination by its name. You can gulp down this drink as a shooter or sip on it slowly when served on ice rocks. Enjoy it on your BACK (Baileys, Amaretto, Cream, Kahlua) or SCREAMING (Vodka, Amaretto, Triple Sec, White Cream de Cacao, Light Cream). It's you call for the day, after all you decide how best you like your Orgasm.

Green Cookie Monster

If you are hungry and thinking about some green coloured cookies then this is just not for you. This mischievous sounding name belongs to an alcoholic drink, more appropriately known as a shooter. It is made by pouring Gin and melon liqueur in a shot glass in the same order and then topping it up with white rum in a shot glass. Some people also prefer making a layer of each ingredient by pouring it very carefully and gently into the shot glass.

Death in the Afternoon
This milky looking deadly combination of Absinthe and Champagne is just enough to put you trolling and spinning you into a world sans inhibitions. You might also find yourself snoozing by the noontime if you dared to drown yourself in this drink in the morning, hence the bizarreness in its name. You may also find this drink as Hemingway or Champagne Hemingway in some bars.

Sex with an Alligator
This might sound like an A rated or triple X movie, however this weird name indicates at a cocktail drink which is a concoction of pineapple juice, Midori, Jagermister and sweet & sour mix. Served in a martini glass this drink has Jagermister floating on top the glass with the bottom part filled with sweet and sour mix. Midori and pineapple juice mix occupies the middle part of the martini glass to give your taste buds a kick of sweet and sour flavour as you sip on it.

One-Balled Dictator
This drink takes you back to the German times of dictatorship, popularised by Hitler. Prepared by violently shaking German Liebfraumilch with French Champagne this drink is served over ice rocks in a glass containing candy cinnamon ball. Wonder what happened to the second ball?

Broken Heart Zombie Mai Tai

At first I thought this was some heart broken dead man, still alive to taste some Mai Tai and then reality dawned upon me. The length of this drink's name is as uncommon as its alcoholic nomenclature. It contains a concoction of various alcohols like rum, triple sec, orange juice, lime soda, grenade syrup and orange Curacao liqueur. If you are not a big fan of clarity in life then this alcoholic confusion is just what you need - Zombie and Mai Tai with a Broken Heart.

Of course, apart from these, we have some all time favourites like Slippery Nipple, Blow Job, Culture Shock and more.

Great article - really are some crazy alcoholic names out there. Just read a great piece about champagne on - even champagne names can be totally random too. Never liked the name Gosset anyway
