THE VORTEX SKULL CRUSHER – Buy the Cocktail, *Keep The Glass
Satan provided the recipe for this original Vortex Signature Cocktail. Sure, it may have cost us our eternal souls, but it was totally worth it. It’s made with premium tequila, vodka, rum, bourbon, various liqueurs and we top it with sparkling peach wine – to keep it classy! Limit 2 per person, per visit. You’ll thank us tomorrow. *The Vortex Skull Crusher custom imprinted 20-ounce Imperial Pint Specialty Glass is available to purchase in the restaurant without the cocktail or here.
THE VORTEX HIP-MO-TIZER – Buy the Cocktail, *Keep The Glass
Light rum, spiced rum and coconut rum, mixed with our secret concoction of fruits and spices, make this cocktail taste just like a Caribbean vacation. For even more fun, we serve this tropical hooch in a crazy-cool porcelain tiki mug that you can take home. But beware! This potent elixir may wreak havoc on your self- control. So if you find yourself getting into trouble, you can justify any ridiculous shenanigans by declaring, “I been Hip-Mo-Tized!” *The Vortex Hip-Mo-Tizer custom porcelain tiki mug is available to purchase in the restaurant without the cocktail but is not currently offered in our online store.

TWO DOLLAR SHOT OF MYSTERY
The bartender won’t tell you what it is, because it’s a secret. It could be great. It could be hideous. Are you feeling lucky? Then take a chance. It’s only two bucks. Choose “neat” or “chilled,” and throw it back. Love it or hate it, there are no refunds.
ORIGINAL & CLASSIC SHOOTERS
Blow Job– Irish cream and Kahlua topped with whipped cream. Place this shooter on the bar, the table in front of you or, if you’re in Midtown, on our Penis Shrine the #DickOfDestiny.
