4. A Short Trip to Hell

5.  Voodoo
There are several variations of this tropical drink, yet none are remotely scary ( except for the wild  combination liquors) and more often the only curse you’ll experience is viewing the bottom of the glass. This version of Voodoo combines mint, mango vodka, and mango nectar.

6. Mikey’s Breakfast Banger 
As dangerous ( and curious) as this drink sounds it’s more similar to a mimosa than ‘A Short Trip to Hell.’ This combination of club soda, orange juice, and Amaretto Di Saronno liqueur is the perfect brunch accompaniment.
