Black Tie Weddings Need A Tuxedo Signature Drink

Planning a black tie wedding? Why not plan a  Tuxedo Signature Drink.

1 oz spiced rum
1 1/2 oz creme de cacao
1/2 oz Fernet Branca

(add 1/8 tsp. of squid ink but this is optional, you can use food coloring instead) Be aware...this stuff stains.

Top with 1/2 oz chocolate stout

Add the first three ingredients to your cocktail shaker.
Next add the squid ink (you can buy this at your fish market or a specialty store like Whole Foods, if you prefer to avoid this ingredient, use some black food coloring instead.) DO NOT ADD ICE. You want to be sure the squid ink/or food coloring is incorporated with the other ingredients.

Fill your cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Double strain into a chilled martini glass. Top with some chocolate stout.

Not into this? Why not try some drinks made with Black Vodka? For those who are squeamish, this may be a better option than the squid laced drink above.

"The colour of BLAVOD Pure Black Vodka is changed by adding catechu, a herb found in southern Asia and central and east Africa. Rich in tannin, catechu has no effect on vodka's flavour. However, many say it makes the vodka a little smoother." (BLAVOD website)
