Thirsty Thursday: Make it a Black Devil Martini

By: Roberto Ferdman

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. Last week we stirred up a season-appropriate Autumn Colors Cocktailthis week we’re back with an ode to October.

September having come and gone, it's about time to start setting your sights on October and the year's most haunted holiday: Halloween. Pumpkin carving and costume-wearing are sure-fire ways to get started, but sip on something spooky and alcoholic to get all the ghastly good times going even sooner. With dark rum, dry vermouth, and an eerily orange-colored salt rim, The Black Devil Martini is just what the Dracula ordered.
