Inked Zacapa Old FashionedInked Zacapa Old Fashioned

Adapted from a recipe by Monica Berg, Aqua Vitae, Oslo, Norway

1 Demerara sugar cube

1 dash squid ink

1 dash Angostura bitters

splash of soda

60 ml (2 oz) Ron Zacapa 23

Place the sugar cube into an old-fashioned glass, and add the squid ink, the bitters, and the club soda.  Crush the sugar cube with a barspoon and stir till all is dissolved. Add ice, then add the spirit while stirring constantly.

Monica Berg

gaz sez:  This is delectable.  The squid ink is hard to detect, but if you search for a slight briny-ness you’ll find it here, and the lush sweetness of the Zacapa is the perfect foil!
