What do Gen Zers do when they witness a movie scene involving Barry Keoghan worshipping the murky bathwater of Jacob Elordi? They create a cocktail, inspired by that very scene, of course. Saltburn contained some of the most ‘creative’ moments of 2024 and one of them clearly impacted people so much that they felt it had to be appreciated and celebrated in such a way that the internet would remember its significance forever.

What is the Jacob Elordi’s bathwater cocktail?

As someone who has seen the film and knows exactly what happens in this scene, I was dreading to witness what these cocktails were going to look like. And, as suspected, I was right to be worried.

Who wants a Jacob Elordi bathtub cocktail? 🛀🏼 If you’ve seen the movie Saltburn, then you know (apologies in advance) — But if not, then it’s probably best to be blissfully unaware. Ingredients: - 2 oz light rum - 2 oz pineapple juice - 1.5 oz cream of coconut - splash of lime juice Combine all ingredients with ice into a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. Rim your glass with cream of coconut and pour. Please slurp responsibly! 🛁 #saltburn #saltburnmovie #jacobelordi #bathtubscene #barrykeoghan #cocktail #cocktailrecipe

My personal favourite take on the drink consists of rum, pineapple juice (if you know, you know), cream of coconut (gross) and lime juice. And, while it might sound like a nice little beach mix, if you think about it too much—or if you look at the milky texture and colour of the cocktail for too long—it’s just going to feel icky to drink it. I’m all for embracing a TikTok trend, but I just don’t know if I could face this cocktail.

TikTokers, however, seem completely unfazed by the drink’s appearance. Tons of videos have begun popping up, showing netizens trying out this new craze—all using different ingredients and variations to suit different tastes:

Whether you’re a rum girl, a vodka girl, or a gin girl, there’s a bathwater cocktail for you. That being said, I might stick to tequila, lime, and sodas myself.
