Meet the Cocktail with 71 Ingredients


PeoplemakeGLA/Twitter

And we thought a drink served in a full-size treasure chest was crazy.

That was before a bartender in Glasglow, Scotland invented this: a 71-ingredient cocktail made to commemorate the XXX Commonwealth Games, the third-largest multi-sport event in the world (after the Olympic Games and the Asian Games) now taking place in Glasgow.

To represent the 71 participating nations — including countries in the Caribbean, Asia, Europe, Africa, the Americas and Oceania — Mal Spence of Kelvingrove Café sourced an ingredient from each region. We’re talking dragonfruit from Belize, saffron from Pakistan, sweet basil from St. Lucia, new potatoes from the Isle of Man and red apple from England. The Drinks Business has the full list.

Samples have already sold out — we wonder if the Games’ most famous attendees, Prince William, Duchess Kate and Prince Harry, were among those who got to sip the bright punch — but those looking to get a taste of the Games can try this cocktail by following the at-home recipe, which is significantly less crazy but still kind of crazy (half a rambutan??). Find it here.

We’re fresh out of dandelion and burdock cordial, so you’ll have to let us know how it tastes.
