But a west London bar has managed to up the novelty stakes by announcing its latest cocktail, 'The Tod', will be served in a hot water bottle.
The drink, which has been created by the Cocktail Trading Company, was featured in this week's Time Out magazine.
The article promised the cocktail would warm chilly Londoners, but on Twitter, the beverage got a somewhat frosty reception.
'The Tod' is a whiskey-based cocktail made with apple juice, fig liqueur and rooibos tea.
It will be available to buy from 1 December, for those who don't mind sipping their whiskey from a rubber container.
Yeah...we're with Twitter on this one.
