Countdown to Halloween 2/3 (Judge Death, Judge Mortis)

Let’s continue our journey towards Halloween 2019… more Dark Judges.

JUDGE DEATH

Prepare a frappe by cooling down suitable glasses in the freezer beforehand. Fill them with crushed or shaven ice, add a straw.

1 part Campari

1 part creme de cassis

Shake vigorously with ice and strain into the ice-filled glasses.

Usually frappes are immensely sweet concoctions, palatable only because they are so very cold. Sweet… well, we can’t have that with Judge Death, now can we? Cassis, of course, is sweet, but pretty much overshadowed by Campari’s bitterness.

What can I say? Being judged by Death is pretty bitter occurence; at least it’s over pretty quickly.

JUDGE MORTIS

2 parts vodka

1 Amaretto di Saronno

1 Midori

dash of water from olive jar (up to 1/2 part)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

The taste of decay… how to depict it, and still produce (at least remotely) enjoyable drink? Well, this is my take on the subject. I guess this drink evokes horror and disgust among many, but if you are a big fan of Dirty Martinis, I guess you’ll actually enjoy this – I know I did.

 

Now I’ve published namesake cocktails for all four Dark Judges. Next post is last before Halloween, and there’s going to be A Bad Guy’s Drink published… and The 200th Superhero Cocktail Recipe… who is also A Bad Guy. See you next week 😀
