Burn Witch Burn

This drink is challenging. But so was being tied to a stake and set on fire. As a wise man (who loved witches) once said, you have to take the bitter with the sour.

We chose a smoky Scotch and the dark, metallic flavors of blackstrap molasses to bring back those old times in Salem. Of course, no homage to witchcraft would be complete without the herbal fragrance of Strega and a nod to the Green Fairy. Sip this one carefully.

To an iced shaker, add:

1 ounce Islay Scotch
1/2 ounce blackstrap molasses
1/2 ounce freshly-squeezed lemon juice
1/2 ounce Strega

Shake vigorously to break up and incorporate that molasses. Strain into a cocktail glass and top with a few drops of absinthe — it should spread out on the surface of the drink and form a halo.

Always drink responsibly; always drink well.

Inspired by a few things, including last weeks episode of “American Horror Stories : Coven”.

…and the name comes from a classic horror film we just love:
