Chicago White Sox

White Sox fans sample — and enjoy? — cicada-infused cocktails outside the ballpark

Gross or gastronomy?

Cicada mania has hit the South Side. White Sox super fans from Section 108 enjoyed a couple of cicada-infused Malort shots and shared a video of the insect mixology on Saturday.

Neither the shot, nor the protein-packed garnish, seemed to faze the 108ers in the moment. But maybe the drink should’ve come with a toothpick, too.

These Sox fans aren’t alone in their ingestible insect innovations. Noon Whistle Brewing in Lombard also offered cicada-infused Malort shots to their patrons for a short time earlier this year.

If you want to try the boozy bugs yourself, it should be noted that eating (or drinking) cicadas is not recommended for people who have shellfish allergies.
