Bug Juice 

A Nasty-sounding drink actually tastes pretty good.

Hawk bartender Rock Hopson celebrates Masturbating Mosquito Monday with his tropical-flavored drink tonight. It's made with Malibu rum, vodka, Midori, pineapple juice, and a splash of ruby-colored grenadine that sinks to the bottom. To him, the dark-green tint of the mix makes the concoction — with its, um, pulsating colors — look like a mosquito sucking blood out of a glass. "One of my customers taught me how to make it on my first day," he says. "I was like, Are you serious? That's a drink?" With four kinds of liquor, the cocktail can flatten even the most professional drunk. Warns Hopson: "If you're new to drinking, one or two of these would push you over the edge."
Mon., June 26, 5-9 p.m.
