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.

  • 2/3 jigger gin
  • 1/3 jigger Dubonnet (red)
  • 1/3 jigger cherry brandy
  • 1/3 jigger orange juice
  1. 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.
