Charlie Sheen's Tiger's Blood Comments Inspire a Cocktail
The quotable actor no longer drinks – but that hasn't stopped bartenders from taking inspiration from him
Charlie Sheen’s spicy – and perplexing – comments about his physical strength and his mental abilities have caused many to sit up and take notice.
TY KU has dreamed up a cocktail, called the TY-ger Blood, inspired by one of Sheen’s many quotable remarks that he’s “different.”
“I have a different constitution,” the actor has said. “I have a different brain; I have a different heart; I got tiger blood, man.”
The drink, which calls for sake and spicy tomato juice, is a play on the Bloody Mary, traditionally made with vodka.
Sheen, of course, doesn’t drink now – so he probably wouldn’t pick up the cocktail, but that shouldn’t stop you from trying it.
Check out the recipe below and, as you make it, use a steady hand and channel, as Sheen’s put it, the “magic … and poetry at [your] fingertips.”
3 oz. tomato juice
1.5 oz. TY KU Sake
pinch of wasabi
dash of soy sauce
squeeze of lime
Shake ingredients hard over ice. Garnish with celery stalk, and enjoy as you’re recovering from those night when you’re “winning!”
Sake not your style? At South Beach’s Red the Steakhouse, you can sample a drink from the “Charlie Sheen collection,” including the Two and a Half Sheets to the Wind martini or a Tigers’ Blood Mojito.
