Who can forget the terror when T-Rex first bursts onto the screen in the original Jurassic Park films? The only thing scarier was Jeff Goldblum’s laugh and the fact that there were clearly no regulations on the opening of the dino park. Lucky for us, Jurassic is back and bigger than ever. Whether you’re a fan of the films or just like Chris Pratt, we’ve got some dino-themed cocktails that will give you all the feeling of living on the edge with none of the risks associated with Jurassic World’s inevitable downfall. Hybrid dinos may not be a good idea, but these drinks are a mixture we can endorse.
Don’t let the fun fizz fool you, there’s danger lurking beneath the surface with jalapeños that bring some unexpected spice. Like the dino that gave it its name, this drink deserves some respect.
