A bartender in Grand Isle, Louisiana took inspiration from the BP oil slick in the US Gulf to come up with the new Tar Ball Shot cocktail - one part Jagermeister and one part grape Jell-O - and at $2 a shot, it's the most popular drink on the island.
Jamie Ganucheau, bartender at Doc of the Bay was inspired by the tar balls washing up on her beach, according to this article on nydailynews.com.
"I felt inspired and knew what I had to do," she said. "I can't think of a better way to commemorate this terrible tragedy than with a delicious beverage."
