Negronis are a very popular herbal drink served around the world. Let’s taste what the underworld is sipping on. This riff on the classic swaps Gin for Jagermeister and delivers a darker, deeper licorice flavor.

Dark Of Night

How do you capture the darkness of night into a cocktail? Double the darkness with your ingredients. First, we have lemon vodka dyed black from forbidden rice. Then the Blue Curacao and Grenadine will infuse deep purple hues. The lemon is to brighten this up, but only in flavor.

To make the Black Vodka: Soak one cup of Forbidden Rice per bottle for up to 5 days. We got a good black color after 3 days, but your results may vary.

Simply mix all your ingredients, shake, and pour into a chilled coupe or martini glass. Don’t forget to sugar that rim first!

  • 2.5 oz Black Lemon Vodka
  • 1 oz Blue Curaco
  • 0.5 oz Grenadine
  • 0.5 oz Lemon Juice
  • Sugar Rim

Transylvania Tonic

Transylvania Tonic Burbon Jagermeister Grenadine Tonic Water

This cocktail is dark, woody, and packed with loads of complex flavors. Licorice from the Jagermeister, Bourbon, combined with the cherry will send your tastebuds on a wild ride. Tonic on top adds some unique sour and a delicious fizz to bring back around.

Simply pour the Bourbon, Jagermeister, and Grenadine over ice, then top with tonic. Dash with bitters then garnish.

  • 1 oz Bourbon
  • 1 oz Jagermeister
  • 0.5 oz Grenadine
  • Tonic Water
  • Angostura Bitters
  • Mint Garnish

What would be more devilish than sipping on a perfectly purple tipple on Hallow’s eve? Nothing really, that’s why you need to try the Hello My Sweet. This witchy brew is a mix of three simple ingredients which makes it easy to make and delicious to sip!

Mix ingredients in a shaker over ice, stir, then strain into a martini glass. The Blue Curacao and Grenadine will come together into a perfect purple. To get the purple rim, wet the edge with purple food gel color and then tap into sugar. This can get messy so be careful.
