Leah Hogsten | The Salt Lake Tribune Drink of the Week; Burt's Tiki Lounge's Cerebral Assassin: a a mix of Jagermeister, Old Crow bourbon whiskey and a slightly fizzy energy drink over ice, served in an over-sized shot glass, April 16, 2013.

$6 • Cerebral Assassin ($4 on Wedensdays)

Mix Jägermeister, Old Crow bourbon whiskey and a slightly fizzy energy drink over ice, lose the cubes and serve in an oversized shot glass. “It’s three nasty things that go great together,” said bartender Greg Hogan. “I’m not a fan of any of them, but together they somehow work.” And it’s the closest thing Burt’s has to that fruity drink with the umbrella, in case you were jonesing for that tiki-lounge vibe. It’s sweet, all right — have a bag of salty chips from the vending machine on standby.

Burt’s Tiki Lounge • 726 S. State St., Salt Lake City; 801-521-0572. Open Monday-Friday, 3 p.m. to 2 a.m., Saturday and Sunday, 5 p.m. to 2 a.m.
