Black Mirror

¾ oz. Butterfly Boston Absinthe
¾ oz. Averna Amaro Siciliano
¾ oz. Gomme Syrup
1 splash Green Chartreuse
1 dash Hella Bitters Ginger Lemon
Sprig Chocolate Mint

Stir everything with ice and strain over crushed ice. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a straw.

Anyone sick of my cocktail filches yet? This is a filch of The Broken Mirror which was appealing on a ridiculously warm day (at least in New England) as I think it’s supposed to be made in a collins full of ice. Unlike all of the other Averna Black cocktails, this one didn’t originally have a Vermouth to switch out. Instead, I swapped out the Lime Juice.

It’s tasty but way sweeter than the name or the show it’s named after. If I was going to design a cocktail based on the themes of the show I think it would be a Negroni of Extra Bitterness, a Boulevardier of Deeper Astringency or an Eeyore’s Requiem of Acerbic Despair.
