Brazilian festivals (such as Carnival) and major concerts. Here the drinks are exchanged for sealed cocktails Molotov. The decision to standardize the production process of the cocktails is related to the idea of the evident commodification of revolutions.

The molotov cocktails spread their scent throughout the exhibition space, thus causing a sense of impending risk of explosion. This risk is mitigated because the cocktails are prepared with a water- based solution reducing the probability of explosion.
