'Tiger Blood' Cocktails: Longman & Eagle's Charlie Sheen-Inspired Drink

Posted: Updated:

Despite many attempts to ignore it, Charlie Sheen's media blitz simply cannot be avoided. From #TigerBlood dominating Twitter to incessant television coverage, Sheen is everywhere. Now, his over-the-top antics have inspired a cocktail at Chicago's beloved Longman & Eagle restaurant.

Longman, which is known for its delicious cocktails, creative food and long wait times, announced via Facebook Monday that "Tiger Blood" is their cocktail of the week.

"As an Ode to Charlie Sheen's new career path the 'Sheenism' Religion, We made our 'Bi-Winning' cocktail of the week 'Tiger Blood,'" the restaurant's Facebook page said Monday afternoon.

Though its roots are disturbing, the recipe sounds delicious: Fighting Cock Bourbon, Carpano Antica, Pedro Ximenez Solera 1927 and Bourbon Barrel Aged Bitters.

This is not the first "Tiger Blood" cocktail Sheen has inspired. TY KU, the makers of Asian wine and spirits, shared their recipe with People magazine:

TY-ger Blood

3 oz. tomato juice
1.5 oz. TY KU Sake
pinch of wasabi
dash of soy sauce
squeeze of lime
