Baltimore Zoo

The Baltimore Zoo is said to have been invented in the mid-1990s at Purdue University in Indiana. This makes sense as the recipe—a Long Island Iced Tea–like cascade of six different spirits topped with, of all things, beer—smacks of collegiate immoderation. What makes less sense is why the high-octane cocktail is named after a popular Maryland attraction. One thing is certain: Drink too many Baltimore Zoos and you too could wind up behind bars.
