The Brain Bleed, Cat's Eye Pub( Jazmine Johnson / Baltimore Sun / October 9, 2013 )
Manager Terri Rychlak created the Brain Bleed shot for our -- and your -- inner mad scientist.
The appearance will send chills up your spine, as it looks like a bleeding brain floating inside the glass. Rychlak said the drink is perfect for Halloween because of its gory vibe, but is not so strong that you won't remember the night.
The peach schnapps and grenadine mix to create a sweet flavor that won't overpower your palate, while the Baileys adds a gooey texture that makes you think you're eating an actual brain -- but in the best way possible. The chilled peach schnapps produces an almost scientific feat, making the Brain Bleed cool in the mouth, but immediately providing a warm sensation as it hits your chest.
But the Brain Bleed isn't the only thing that makes Cat's Eye perfect for Halloween. According to Rychlak, the pub is haunted. "We've had things jump off walls, glasses jump off shelves. We've heard footsteps upstairs and the sound of stools moving when no one is touching them," she said. She has also felt a cool breeze on the back of her neck even with the heat on, what many consider to be a clear sign of a ghostly presence.
Maybe this Brain Bleed is actually made to appease the ghosts. We're on to you, Terri.
