Tiger’s Blood Cocktails

Yup it's happened. The Charlie Sheen epidemic is spreading to your cuisine. Moroccan restaurant Fifty Five in midtown says they will be serving a "Tiger's Blood cocktail with a dash of Adonis DNA." What in the hell? It's actually just a SUPER spicy Bloody Mary made with wasabi and harissa. At the Ninth Ward, they have the "Charlie Sheen" on their menu which consists of two and a half parts coca-cola and Catdaddy Carolina Moonshine (has a caramel-like taste) with of course, a powdered sugar rim around the glass. Hmm wonder what they're trying to say. If I had to create a Charlie Sheen cocktail, I think it would be 2 parts tequila, 1 part coke, a dash of hot sauce and a jigger of straight Charlie Sheen. However, if you don't have any Charlie Sheen on hand I suppose you can take the recipes from Fifty Five and the Ninth Ward..
