Chicago Cubs mania is high this season, but are you such a devoted Cubs fan that you would try a bizarre cocktail to benefit Jon Lester's Never Quit charity

How bizarre you ask? Well, the "Never Quit" cocktail from Virgin Hotels in Chicago is a Jon Lester-inspired cocktail being billed as a "boozy baseball game in a glass".



Still on board to try it? Let's see what happens when I give a bit more of the drink's description from the Virgin Hotels' website:


The “Never Quit” is a vodka infused leather cocktail with peanut syrup and leaf alcohol that smells of fresh cut grass. Top it off with a splash of Old Style, and you’ve got yourself a true Wrigley taste sensation.



Umm...I'm sorry, but that sounds nasty. It's a darn good thing that $1 from each of these drinks sold benefit Jon Lester's charity that helps the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation, or I'm guessing lots of Cubs fans would be staying far away from this glass of grass and leather on ice.

What do you think? Would you try it...for the kids?


I think I'll just cure my cravings for peanuts and beer with this yummy muffin recipe from Susan Tyler...
