This interesting name is an indication of two things – the drink’s connection to the city of Baltimore in Maryland, and its tendency to turn a group of people into a chaotically wild jungle. The Baltimore is an EXTREMELY strong drink – this cannot be emphasized enough. Yet, the amazing thing about the Baltimore Zoo is, that it not only has a potency equivalent to the strongest drink in the world, but it also, incredibly, not taste of alcohol at all.
The other curious thing about drinking it is that it makes you have the munchies. So if you’re planning on downing a couple of these, you should be prepared with snacks; you’re going to need them. What makes this drink dangerous is that it’s very easy to down, so it’ll be extremely hard to limit yourself to your tolerance – and with the Baltimore Zoo, it’s most likely that your tolerance will not survive past the first serving.
This cocktail has an overpoweringly fruity taste, mixed like a zoo of fruits. It is an extremely sweet drink of a very aggressive temper – a strange combination for a drink nevertheless a most welcome one. This is a favourite drink of many, particularly those who are the life of the party. Basically, in other words, Baltimore Zoo is a strong as hell party punch that, surprisingly, doesn’t even give that terrible of a headache in the morning (could this drink get any better?).
