Día de los Muertos: A Cocktail for the Day of the Dead


In honor of the Day of the Dead, I present you with this new cocktail creation: "Día de los Muertos". Lugubriously jolly, spicy, and complex, there is a curious hint of black cherry throughout, although nothing in the ingredients suggests this. Perhaps it is an olfactory cue from the dried black cherries on a pick used as a garnish...

DÍA DE LOS MUERTOS

1 part Broker’s Gin 
 1 part Ancho Reyes Ancho Chile Liqueur
 ½ part Pama Pomegranate Liqueur
 ½ part Punt e Mes* 
½ part fresh-squeezed Seville** Orange juice 
1 part Fever-Tree Tonic Water Shake everything but the Tonic Water over ice, then add 
the Tonic and stir. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
 Garnish with three dried black cherries on a pick.

 *You can substitute Vya Sweet Vermouth for the Punt e Mes **Also known as Sour Orange

Doin' that Mortal Coil Shuffle! Oh yeah!

And if you're still in a lugubrious mood... There's a Mister Death at the Door: A Cocktail for Dark Contemplation
