In the pursuit of finding new ways to make cocktails intriguing, we've seen some crazy shit. And the latest gimmick is shocking — literally. The Eberhard, an East Henderson haunt, now offers a cocktail dubbed the Henderson Cooler, a riff on a Last Word. The hook? It's served with an optional add-on that will make your taste buds dance.
The herbaceous and spicy cocktail is kicked up a notch with the addition of a Szechuan Button, an edible flower that causes a tingling, numbing sensation when chewed. Now that's shocking.
Henderson Cooler ($10 cocktail + $3 optional Szechuan Button): Tanqueray Gin, St. Germain, Green Chartreuse, fresh-squeezed lime juice, muddled cucumber, Szechuan Button
The Eberhard, 2107 N. Henderson Ave.
