If Metal Songs Were Mixed Drinks (These Would be the Ingredients)
There's nothing more synonymous with Metal than booze, so we've concocted some adult mixed beverages whose ingredients were inspired by some of our favorite Metal songs. Since no one on staff is a licensed bartender, we asked actor and metal aficionado Steve Sharkey, who moonlights as a bartender at the infamously rowdy karaoke bar The Gaslite in Santa Monica, to help make these drinks drinkable. Cheers Metalheads!
I'm Alive (Artist: Anthrax)
Play on: Cherry Berry Bomb
A drink containing a jolt of energy.
1 shot cherry vodka
1 shot of blueberry vodka
Served with Redbull in a glass with no ice.
"It will hit harder than the Jaegar bomb and keep you running all night long," Sharkey says.
Piss (Artist: Pantera)
Play on: Monkey Wrench
Tastes just as awful as it sounds but douchebags will love being able to order "Piss on the Rocks".
1.5 oz white rum
4 oz grapefruit
Head Crusher (Artist: Megadeth)
Play on: Skippy
A guaranteed hangover drink.
12 oz Budweiser
2 oz citrus vodka
4 oz Lemonade.
Serve in a tall glass and hold onto your ass!
"The vodka throws you in the drunk and hungover end of things and the lemonade's sweetness guarantees it," Sharkey says.
White Trash Millionaire (Artist: Black Stone Cherry)
Play on: Paris at night
A drink containing VERY expensive ingredients mixed with really CHEAP ingredients.
Hennessy and Coke
Built to Fall (Artist: Trivium)
Play on: The Truth
A drink that will knock you off your feet.
1/3 Bacardi 151
"It is a shot that once you take you know that tonight will be blurry and tomorrow will be painful," Sharkey says.
96 Quite Bitter Beings (Artist: CkY)
Play on: Blood and Sand
Tastes quite bitter and sour.
1 oz. scotch
3/4 oz cherry liquor
3/4 sweet vermouth
1 oz Orange Juice

A cheap drink you'd buy for someone you don't really like.
