Best Garnish Evar

Cachacagora spotted this quote from the Sydney Morning Herald's interview with Max Warner of Chivas:

Q What's the strangest drink you've ever been served?

A In South America, there are large and sleepy bees and the kids wrap cotton threads around them while they're asleep so they end up on a leash. I was served a drink that consisted of cachaca and champagne poured over honeycomb. One end of the string was tied around the honeycomb; on the other end was a live garnish. As the honeycomb slowly dissolves, the string releases and the bee flies away.

That is amazing, though I don't know how close I'd want bees to my face while drinking cocktails. I would try that at home, but all I have to work with is large spiders.
