Originally, I wanted to create a drink with lots of delicious botanical-inspired ingredients and black vodka… but it was impossible to get my hands on it! So I decided to whip up something strong and sinister with ingredients that were a bit more accessible. We’re calling it “The Dark”.

This one’s the easy kind. You don’t even need a shaker, simply pour the ingredients together over a large ice cube (the kind real whiskey drinker’s use) and stir. Garnish with edible flowers if you can get ’em.
