Mixed drink in a traditional glass? Tiny shot of booze? So very much things of the past. Those in search of the latest in adult beverages now turn to fish bowls.

R Bar and Grill in Nanticoke is serving the 20-ounce spherical glasses with flavors running the gamut from mint chocolate chip to coconut cream pie.

"You definitely get more bang for your buck with these," co-owner and manager Lauren Maga said. "And if you don't want to drink the full 20 ounces, we offer each flavor in a martini or mixer form."

There are more than 25 different types to choose from, one of which is the Black Forest Cake Fish Bowl. This provides an authentic dessert taste and is made up of both chocolate and cherry vodka, as well as cherry juice, cream and chocolate syrup. The real kicker, though, are the toppings, which almost overflow the glass: whipped cream, cherries and chocolate syrup.

Maga said the most popular bowls are the "Drink Like a Fish," which tastes like Swedish Fish, and the chocolate peanut butter cup bowl.
