Sunset Cocktail: Ebon Obituary



2 1/2 oz. Vilya Spirits Silvertip Gin
1/4 oz Averna
1/4 oz Butterfly Boston Absinthe

Stir everything with ice and strain into a chilled Cocktail glass.

Another easy “Blackened” cocktail to add to the list that works quite well on this bleak day. I went a little heavier on the Gin than a typical Obituary because, well, I wanted more Gin at the moment.

If I actually sell any of those Sunset Cocktails Calendars I’ll start getting ideas for next year. I may do another Sunsets Calendar, maybe  a “Blackened” Cocktails Calendar or a non-sunset Mythos Cocktails thing. I don’t know yet but we’ll see if this year’s gets some love.

I was trying to find a better name than The Black Obituary for this drink. I didn’t want to name it something too terribly harsh or dismal as the drink is quite nice and could lose the sinister charm of the original name. The Eulogy was already a cocktail name so I kept it simple.

I also didn’t want to get all political with a name like Obituary for the Nation, The Republic’s Death Note or anything after this election. You don’t have to like the fact that a molotov cocktail has been thrown into the broken system but we all have to deal with it, change is fucking painful. It’s a good thing that people are giving a shit. Remember, Anger is a Gift.
