The Commonwealth Games have kicked off in Glasgow and to celebrate the occasion a local bartender has crafted a monstrous  71-ingredient cocktail made with foods representing each of the competing countries.

Described as having ''floral notes,'' the extravagant cocktail is the work of mixologist Mal Spence from the Kelvingrove Café. Spence went through 300 different iterations before finding one that pleased his palate.

His technique? To throw everything but the kitchen sink into the mix. There's Jamaican okra, taro from Papua New Guinea, new potatoes from Isle of Man, as well as cacao from Malawi, pomegranate from the Maldives and Pakistani saffron.

Adventurous drinkers have until August 3rd to swing by the Kelvingrove Café for a taste of the unique beverage. Here's a quick clip in which Spence explains how the 71-ingredient cocktail is made:
