Bompas & Parr, a company that specializes in weird cocktails and food is hosting a workshop on Dec. 15 where you can make cocktail bitters from your own tears.

Yup, your real human tears.

What are bitters?

Bitters are essentially a flavoring added to alcoholic beverages. They are made of different type of botanicals (aka herbs and stuff).
This particular one has human tears.


Well, you could argue that it's a marketing play (it's probably a marketing ploy), but the makers stated the got their inspiration from the Civil War.
“We often work from a historical point of view," a Bompas & Parr spokesperson told Mashable. "There are stories from the American Civil War where women were said to have cried into bottles and saved them for when their husbands come home. It has a sort of magic about it, saving these emotions.”
Well, we've seen bread made of yeast from a lady's... well, you know. (card by @InPlainSight) And we've heard of crazy people drinking their own pee, (yep, they claim it has health benefits). But this is just another body product you can consume.

What do you all think?! Anyone else worried that this cocktail will be salty?

Tagging all the cocktail connoisseurs I know :) @Allobaber @rodiziketan @marshalledgar

Lmao @nicolejb I can just see myself: "Uh oh, Ellen's about to bring out a kid from an isolated village in Taiwan who's always wanted to meet a real life giraffe. Time to bring out the tears jars."
@nicolejb It was a weekend, and you can't stop Us from going to the local dance spot. Instead of drinking imported beers, Somebody brought a bottle of Orphan Tears. We popped the top. We know what was in it. Yeah, we were all so stupid to sip it. Orphan Tears are so hallucinogenic. I took one drink and saw a two-headed midget.
Ahahahahahahaha this is actually awesome @kneelb4zod
Sip sippin' on orphan tears!!
