This is the drink that started my love for Averna. When trying to come up with a base for a Black Horse of the Apocalypse cocktail I came across the Black Negroni which had reference to The Black Manhattan. The Black Horse is basically a Black Manhattan with Rye and an Absinthe wash and it works really, really well.

Based on The Arsenic and Old Lace Cocktail, this is another classic that seemed fit to be blackened with Averna.

A twist on the Merry Widow. I’d have called it The Black Widow if it wasn’t so obvious and there was already a shitty tequila drink with that name.

This is a filch of The Broken Mirror. 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.

Taken from The Jewel Cocktail on the Imbibe site which is an even 1:1:1 version of the Bijou and Blackened with the substitution of Averna for the Sweet Vermouth.

An easy and necessary filch of the White rat taken from Pioneers of Mixing at Elite Bars: 1903-1933. As an obsessive fan of both classic cocktails and rats I figured I had to give this one a try.

Based on the classic Obituary. I tried to find a better name than Black Obituary for this drink but didn’t want to name it something too bleak as to lose it's sinister charm.
