I’m not picky with my alcoholic beverages – anything beyond two ingredients is pretty much a soufflé. But some folks are of the more adventurous type. For those people these new “molecular mixology” recipes are not only delicious but also incredibly cool looking. They’re scientifically guaranteed to spice up any party.

The mojito is a sweet drink. But these egg-looking thingies are even better. They’re made with calcium lactate glucinate and take 24 hours to make. Check out a recipe here.

2. Inside-Out Bloody Mary

Ah, the bloody mary. Nature’s evidence that last night got a bit away from you and yes, you do plan on wearing those sunglasses during brunch because its is really bright in this restaurant. To make this cool inside-out version, freeze the BM mix in ice cube trays and then to pour the vodka over them. Check out the process here.

3. Cocktail In An Ice Sphere

This drink is made with frozen kaffir limes that have been cut like shot glasses and infused with lime tequila, making it a nice metaphor for that girlfriend of yours who really needs to slow her roll. Check out the recipe.

Some of those are quite a bit of work but would be a huge hit at parties. Still unsure about that cocktail sphere thing… do I need a mallet to drink it?
