BLEEEEECH! Week continues...

Keeping with the running theme, I have two more disgusting cocktails to pass along. The first comes compliments of "Zerlesen." Apparently, this one is a favorite of PJ O'Rourke.

THE CHICKEN SHOT

2 oz. Chicken Bouillon (Cold)
2 oz. Beef Bouillon (Cold)
1/2 oz. Lemon Juice (Fresh)
Tabasco Sauce (To taste)
Worcestershire Sauce (To taste)
Pepper (To taste)
Celery Salt (To taste)

Wait...huh? No booze? I checked three different recipes and they were all non-alcoholic. Since when is O'Rourke a teetotaler? OK, fine, he merely mentioned this drink in one of his books but who knows? He could be chugging four of these with lunch everyday.

EMERIL'S OYSTER SHOOTER RECIPE

2 3/4 cups tomato juice
4 ounces pepper vodka
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon freshly grated horseradish, or prepared horseradish, drained
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
Pinch salt
Pinch freshly ground black pepper
2 dozen small-sized shucked oysters

(serves six)

I've never done an oyster shooter. I won't do one in a boat. I won't do one on a goat. I won't do one in the Caspian Sea. I won't do one in a field of...peas. OK, I got nothing.

While I'm sure there's far more disgusting drinks out there, I can't name one. Oysters? In a drink? WHY?!! If you're going to go that far, why not toss in a sardine, a tentacle and a little bit of seaweed that has sat on a beach for a few weeks, just for good measure?

All I have to say is BLEEEEECH!

Coincidentally, the Portland Not-Quite-Daily rolled out a series of odd drink recipes in a post yesterday. Click here to read all about Green Russians, Whiskey Dews and something called the Bloody Lawnmower.
