The Heart of Darkness cocktail
Posted: 07 July 2017
We're always on the lookout for fun new food and drinks trends. And lately, inky dark cocktails have been popping up, coinciding perfectly with our July 2017 #HLBWIssue – if you're looking for an explosion of monochrome inspiration, get your copy in stores or online now. Bartenders have been experimenting with activated charcoal, squid ink (not to be used if you have seafood allergies), toasted black sesame seeds and black walnut hulls to produce dramatic drinks. Here's one to try making yourself: the Heart of Darkness cocktail, originally created by Courtney Colarik for Pouring Ribbons in New York.
