A Murder of Goth Chicks

Sean Enright, Tiki Lounge, Pittsburgh, PA

“This drink was originally created for a whiskey event as I had just started reading Beachbum Berry’s tiki guides. I wanted to create a non-typical tiki drink and I liked the balance of sweet and bitter in this cocktail. The name comes from ‘what would you call a group of goth girls?’ which the answer is obviously ‘a murder’… like a murder of crows.” Sean Enright

Murder of Goth Chicks22.5 ml (.75 oz) Averna amaro

45 ml (1.5 oz) bourbon

22.5 ml (.75 oz) Don’s Mix*

7.5 ml (.25 oz) orgeat syrup

6 dashes Bittermens Elemakule Tiki bitters

Guinness, as float

Pour amaro into a rocks glass. Carefully add one large ice cube so as not to disturb the amaro.

Shake over ice and double-strain slowly over the ice cube. Float the Guinness on top with spigot as close to the ice cube as possible.

*Don’s Mix: This recipe is from Don the Beachcomber: Combine two parts fresh grapefruit juice with 1 part cinnamon simple syrup. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to use. (To make cinnamon syrup, combine 200 g (1 cup) sugar, 240 ml (1 cup) water, and a 2-inch piece of cinnamon bark in a saucepan. Set over low heat for 5 minutes. Let stand overnight and then strain. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to use.)

gaz sez: Too bloody weird not to try, right? This one is just astonishing. ‘Nuf said.
