It was, perhaps, inevitable that someone would create an A-Roid cocktail.
That someone is Bonfire. It's offering the drink along with its seasonal Red Sox menu -- Francona's franks, truffled Papel-corn, Guinness "Big Frapi," etc.
What is an A-Roid cocktail, you ask? A shot of El Mejor tequila, straight up, with a "Performance-Enhancing Boost of Spicy Tomato 'Juice'" (smoked tomatoes, tomato juice, lemon juice, Tabasco, and jalapenos). It comes in a syringe without a needle; you can inject it into the shot or use it as a chaser.
Am I the only one who's actually starting to feel a little sorry for A-Rod?
