Witch's Hat Cocktail
Don't be fooled by this concoction's dark and mysterious color; this sip is sweet and fruity with just enough tartness to balance it all.
2 ounces black vodka
1 ounce black Chambord
2 ounces dark cherry juice
crushed chocolate wafers for garnish
light corn syrup (optional)
Yield: 1 cocktail
1. Lightly dampen the rim of a martini glass and dip in crushed chocolate wafer crumbs. Set aside. Tip: for better adhesion, dilute two tablespoons of light corn syrup with a few drops of water. Use your fingertips to apply the syrup to the rim of the glass.
2. Place vodka, Chambord, and cherry juice in a cocktail shaker filled 2/3 with ice. Shake until jet cold (about 20 seconds). Strain the cocktail into the martini glass and serve.
