A restaurant in Australia is mixing the margarita with the macabre by garnishing its drinks with a cow’s eyeball in a block of ice. The drink, black due to the addition of charcoal, is served in a glass rimmed with black salt. It is recommended that patrons drink the beverage as quickly as possible, to avoid any melting of the actual eyeball into the glass.
The eyeball drink is part of the overall arty vibe at Faros Tapas, a new addition to Australia’s Museum of Old and New Art in Tasmania. Guests can also sign up for an experience described by one reviewer as lying “on a bed, in an enclosed metal sphere, for about 15 minutes,” surrounded by flashing lights.
