Mixologists are always innovating and some of their creations leave cocktail aficionados dumbfounded. There are many drinks inspired by certain cities, seasons of nature, places, events, and even perfumes. But here comes an extraordinary effort by mixologists - they have been inspired by daily makeup products! 

This innovation happened for a marketing event for a cosmetic brand but made for tasty drinks. And don't worry, none of the cosmetic supplies were used in making any of the drinks! The drinks simply imbibe the essence of each make-up wear, and they are super delicious! Check out the zany cocktails created after everyday makeup products. These cocktails not only display the variety of ingredients and flavours mixologists experiment with but they also transport you to places where the key recipe component originates from.

Check out the unconventionally inspired cocktails below:

Assembly Hall/HereAfter (HereAfter Margarita)

This margarita variant is inspired by a key make-up component loose powder! Loose powder is used to set any makeup look in place. It can set foundation and concealer for all-day wear. It helps in naturally mattifying the skin to create a soft-focus, flawless finish. This make-up component has inspired the Assembly Hall/Here After Margarita. The delicious drink is made using Cazadores Reposado Tequila, Triple Sec, agave nectar, fresh lime juice, and a touch of fragrant lavender, with a hint of sugar.

Futur:st (Sunkissed Sour)

Sunscreen! This forever product is not just a make-up component but a daily wear wear. The drink inspired by sunscreen is a matured version of Sour Patch Kids candy, albeit the saccharine.

The Green Door (The Makati Iskrambol)

Lip tints are a girl's best friend and we cannot have enough shades of it! The Juicy Punch! lip tint has inspired the yummiest cocktail based on a make-up product. It's a vodka-based drink with ube flavour topped with skimmed milk and burnt marshmallow - a clear tribute to the Iskrambol!

Tambai (Bloody Margarita)

The perennial beauty trend of lip tint has inspired a delicious cocktail. The lip tint is a cosmetic product used to colour the lips. It comes in the form of a liquid or gel. It usually stays on longer than lipstick by leaving a stain of colour on the lips. The cocktail inspired by Ink-licious lip tint is called Tambai or Bloody Margarita. If you like sweet and sour flavour combinations, you will fall in love with this drink. Tambai is made using a splash of citrus and tang with the tequila.

While it's great to learn about making cocktails and alcoholic beverages, it is important to consume alcohol moderately.

If you know anyone who has trouble controlling their alcohol intake, please refer them to a professional immediately.
