If you're a cocktail fanatic, you may have come across a number of revolting cocktail names. These weird cocktail names do not necessarily affect the taste of the cocktail but they may stop you from choosing the drink. So, get to know your cocktail recipe before you pass judgment on the name.


Swamp Gas

This cocktail has its roots in Cobalt, New Orleans. It isn't stinky as the name may falsely imply, as it is simply a mixture of blue Curacao and melon liqueur.



Buzzard’s Breath
Buzzard’s Breath is a milk minty cocktail made with peppermint schnapps, amaretto almond liqueur and coffee liqueur.


Brain Tumor

A mixture of cherry brandy, peach schnapps, Bailey's Irish Cream, and a splash of grenadine syrup give this drink its bloody appearance.


Duck Fart
This cocktail is the result of a combination of Irish cream, coffee liqueur, and Crown Royal.


Gorilla Milk
The Gorilla Milk cocktail gets its name from its components: crème de banana and milk. Though it might sound unsavory, it is quite delicious.


Salty Dog

This salty dog gets its name simply because it is the saline & gin version of the ever-so-popular "dog" cocktail, the greyhound. This drink contains gin, grapefruit juice, and a salted rim.


Sewer Water
This cocktail recipe doesn’t have sewer water in it, although the color of the cocktail is muddy brown. It is a fruity flavored cocktail that contains a mixture of: rum, gin, melon liqueur, lime juice, grenadine, and pineapple juice. 


Although the names of these drinks may be off-putting, the drinks themselves actually taste great! Which one would be your pick?
