TORONTO, Oct. 28 (UPI) -- A Toronto cocktail consultancy said it created the Cheeseburger Cocktail, which contains meat, for Flor de Cana rum's National Sandwich Day event.
Flor de Cana, based in Nicaragua, sought submissions from beverage experts for Nov. 3 National Sandwich Day and the most protein-filled concoction was the Cheeseburger Cocktail, which contains a beef stock reduction, Roma tomatoes and fresh iceberg lettuce water, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.
The drink is garnished with aged cheddar frico and a kosher dill pickle.
"Carnivorous cocktails are becoming the meat lover's libation," said Trevor Burnett of Tipicular Fixin's, which created the cocktail. "It's like a meal in a glass."
"You can pair it with something else meat based," Burnett said. "It's one of those cocktails you would indulge in if you were eating steak and fries."
