This week we have a scary cocktail. Behold, the Nightmare!
It looks a lot scarier in the picture. Ours just ended up looking like apple cider. Maybe we should have gotten a light for the inside of our cocktail, too.
- ⅔ jigger gin
- ⅓ jigger Dubonnet (red)
- ⅓ jigger cherry brandy
- ⅓ jigger orange juice
- Shake well with ice and strain into chilled cocktail glass.
“How is it? I’m guessing strong?”
“Hoooooo. Yes. But it’s not bad.”
The Verdict: Not Bad
From The Tasting Notes:
The drink isn’t too shabby. You can taste all of the different ingredients without one overwhelming another, but it is a little strong. Not really worth opening a whole bottle of Dubonnet for just this drink, but at least the drink has the coolest name we’ve come across so far.
