Well, someone had to jump on the "asteroid coming, maybe going to die" theme — good thing Boston's Salvatore's Seaport restaurants are on that. 

This weekend only, the restaurants will be serving an asteroid-named cocktail, called the "2012 DA14." Featuring Grey Goose cherry noir, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup, and soda, there's a little something extra — it's served with extra "rocks" and a jaw-breaker candy. (That somehow doesn't make us feel better.) Apparently, the Salvatore's restaurant at 225 Northern Ave. was to begin serving the drink at exactly 2:25 p.m. when the asteroid was closest to the Earth because, well, that coincidence is just a little creepy to not be drinking a stiff one, no? 

The recipe to get you through your terrifying last moments on Earth: 


2 ounces Grey Goose cherry noir
1 ounce lemon juice
1 ounce simple syrup
Soda, to top


Combine all ingredients, and serve with a jaw-breaker on top
