Halloween Cocktail : The Black Beard
Lets make this Halloween fun and…alcoholic !
30 ml Spiced Rum
15 ml Fernet Branca
45 ml Crème De Cacao
1/8 tsp squid ink (optional) – if you don’t have or don’t like to use squid ink replace it with black food coloring
15 ml chocolate stout
Chilled Martini glass
Start by adding the spiced rum, Fernet, and crème de cacao to your shaker.
Next, add the squid ink. You can find squid ink at your local fish market. You can also try a grocery store with a good fish counter. If you’re squeamish, feel free to substitute black food coloring.
Give the ingredients a hard, dry shake(no ice). This will help thoroughly incorporate the ink.
Fill your shaker with ice and shake vigorously for a full 30 seconds so that your drink becomes cold and frothy.
Double strain into a chilled cocktail glass and top with the chocolate stout.
