In a couple of days I’ll be leaving to Africa for a holiday. It’s gonna be nature-oriented trip, savannah safaris and jungle hikes. I’m sure it’s gonna inspire me for some cocktail ideas, in the first place I’m thinking of Black Panther and Gorilla Grodd… but let’s check out today’s recipes first.
Small and sweet, but still packs the punch; simple as that.
-1 part dark rum
-1 part Amaretto di Saronno
-3 to 4 parts of strawberry juice
Shake with ice and strain into old fashioned glass with some ice in it. Garnish with suitable candy.
As I’ve been hollering dozens of times before, concerning berry juices in cocktails… for strawberry juice use concentrate diluted with water 1:1 instead of recommendation.
This drink contains Amaretto for the same reason I included it in The Punisher: it’s sweet liqueur, but when combined with certain aromas it gives kinda “surly” taste… Katherine Pryde might seem like your average teenager at first glance, but she’s more than that.
On the other hand… she IS young, same as Peter Parker: that’s why I included “teenage favourite” strawberry juice in both cocktails.
So… easy strawberry juice, combined with surprisingly “murky” Amaretto: dark rum to give the whole shebang “a spine”. I hope you like it.
Yes, it’s supposed to look like sludge! With Hawkeye and Magneto I whined about my inability to photograph purple colour, pics ended up looking bleak and dismal… but with Parasite I succeeded: it will look like silt or something like that, and that’s the point! Let’s face it: parasites (or Parasite) aren’t the most pleasant of all things… so it’s appropriate that the drink looks as inviting as a cess pool. But make no mistake: this cocktail is delicious, among the best I’ve created!!!
-8 cl (3 oz) sweet red vermouth
-2 cl (3/4 oz) Green Chartreuse
-2 cl simple syrup
-one egg white
Shake vigorously with ice and strain into suitable glass with lots of ice in it. Absolutely no garnish: serve it as it is, monitoring people’s faces… their expressions are guaranteed to change after they’ve tasted it.
Try creating more vile looking concoctions by substituting simple syrup for different coloured grenadines.
That’s all, folks. As I said, I’ll be gone for a couple of weeks… and when I’m back I’ll bring you some Africa-inspired superhero cocktails 😀
