Black Cocktails

Ho ho ho and a bottle o' vodka. This is a funny article -- They drink this stuff? from the LA Times.

The Marquis will have to enlighten me as to how widespread the phenomenon is for these "black cocktails" in the bartending scene. I'm afraid I'm not familiar with this type o' vodka. I think you should "review" it for us!

Of the recipes printed with the article, I thought this one, however, sounds like the best -- they said it was basically a black Kamikaze. Ooooh, and we all know how suicidal (do forgive the pun) THOSE are. And the name. Oh, the name. Are you sitting down, Kallisti? I think someone came up with a cocktail for vous!

It's called the BLACK PLAGUE.

Here's the recipe:

1 1/2 ounces Blavod black vodka

1 ounce triple sec

1/2 ounce fresh lime juice

1. Pour the vodka, triple sec and lime juice into a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled old-fashioned glass.

The recipe notes it's served at some SoCal club called Ghoul Skool. Melusine, as you just visited LA not that long ago, have you heard of that one? Or did you see any of these nefarious concoctions when you were gadflying about?
