With apologies to the London-imported brand of organic cachaça, I give you this snippet of the Sydney Morning Herald's interview with Max Warner, brand ambassador and head mixologist for Chivas Regal:
Q What's the strangest drink you've ever been served?
A In South America, there are large and sleepy bees and the kids wrap cotton threads around them while they're asleep so they end up on a leash. I was served a drink that consisted of cachaça and champagne poured over honeycomb. One end of the string was tied around the honeycomb; on the other end was a live garnish. As the honeycomb slowly dissolves, the string releases and the bee flies away.
