I'll have the margarita. Super-sized, please.
Metromix has a mouth-watering roundup of six massive drinks from various bars and restaurants around town.
A couple years ago, I tried the bucket cocktail at Howl at the Moon, and remember it tasting like grain alcohol mixed with a pound of sugar. I think I coughed fire (cartoon-style) after a few sips.
I've always wanted to order one of the hubcap margaritas at Nacho Mama's (pictured) on a hot summer day and plop my face in it.
That thought raises the question: Do people ever bob for apples in giant vats of jungle juice? I would. But I'd probably regret when my face melted ...
I like how the Metromix piece breaks the cost down per ounce. At first, I was surprised to see that Ra Sushi's tsunami punch was the cheapest mixed drink by the ounce. But I doubt it has the same amount of liquor as some of the others.
Big drinks like these were made for sharing, of course. But being a shameless, wasteful, overindulgent American (and an example of my spoiled generation, I'm told), I am tempted to order one just for myself and sip on it all night. Probably a bad move, though. Hiccup.
