Um, can anyone say "tacky"? Birds, a longstanding watering hole in Franklin Village gets our vote for the crassest cocktails in town: Two boozy bevs named "in honor" of acquitted Florida mom Casey Anthony.

The Jury dredges up the oft-used comparison to the OJ Simpson verdict (and, hey, look, OJ is an ingredient!). The Chloroform is basically a bunch of the gross stuff you haven't put together in a drink since college. Both are touted as being likely to "impair your judgement" [sic] and "render you incapable of using your common sense."

Frankly, it seems like whoever is in charge at Birds had a few too many drinks themselves and lost their sense of decorum. What do you think of these "ripped from the headlines" libations?
