Margarita – with splash of mayo

TOKYO — When Koji Nakamura mixes up a margarita cocktail, he adds a special ingredient – mayonnaise.

“Mayogarita,” a white drink with a hint of the creamy dressing, is one of several cocktails Mr. Nakamura serves in his Mayonnaise Kitchen restaurant in suburban Tokyo, which features mayonnaise with everything from toast to spaghetti to fondue.

Thanks to Stephen Beaumont, who posted this little number in the comments over at Kaiser Penguin, we now have confirmation that the chocolate martini wasn’t the worst of it. Still need convincing? How’s this:

Mr. Nakamura’s tiny restaurant, which has fewer than a dozen tables and is decorated with cutouts shaped like mayonnaise bottles, also offers a drink called the Mayoty Dog, which tastes like the vodka-based cocktail Salty Dog but is served in a glass with mayonnaise on its rim instead of salt.

    I want reports of people actually trying these healthy drinks!

    I wonder if I could actually take a good photo of a mayonnaise-rimmed glass …

  2. An unbelievable ingredients MxMo appears to be called for after reading this little number.

    Mayo, Bullion, Animal Stock, meat products, maybe an anchovy?

    If there’s something swimming in my drink, it better be edible.

  3. I am so doing a Caesar Salad cocktail rimmed with powdered Dried Anchovy.

    I’ve heard of a mayo-rim before, but it was on a “different” kind of web site.

  5. If you haven’t seen the photo (no, not j-beau’s photo) of the drink it’s here:

  6. Ya know, I usually refrain from knocking something before I actually try it; but, that looks truly disgusting.

    The worst part is I can exactly imagine what it will taste like, and it has ruined my morning.

  7. Done.

    Okay, now I’m starting to feel a little curdly in the stomach. But it’s not entirely without merit.

  8. That sounds so wrong….. I bet it tastes good.

    Well, somebody has to think its good because it sounds like the place has made more than one of them…..
