A Pungent Blood Cocktail is a consumable item in Bloodborne.


In-Game Description

Mature blood cocktail that releases a pungent odor when thrown that attracts blood-thirsty beasts.
A precious tool in sadly short supply. In Yharnam, they produce more blood than alcohol, as the former is more intoxicating.



Throw to attract beast-type enemies towards the location of its impact. Most enemies that are affected will immediately ignore everything to feed on the blood.

Susceptible Enemies[]

Susceptible Bosses[]


  • Since it is a rare, expensive item, it should only be used in dire situations.
  • Can be used strategically with Molotov Cocktails. Throw the Blood Cocktail first, let the beasts gather closely, and then throw the Molotov.
  • This item works well against the Blood-starved Beast. Even its name is a hint.


  • Serves a similar function as the Alluring Skulls from the Dark Souls series.
  • It is typically used by Yharnamites as a common drink. The Afflicted Beggar gave the Hunter 2 bottles of this as thanks.
