Larry Trask / Monday, Feb. 11, 2013 @ 11:56 a.m. / Cocktail


Tuesday night, we'll be featuring this beautiful and tasty drink for The Cocktail Hour (6pm-7pm). It's classy, impressive and delicious and the recipe comes from the Gallery Bar and Cognac Room at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles.  

In a shaker, combine

3 ½ oz. of citrus vodka
¾ oz. Chambord raspberry liquor
¾ oz. Kahlua.
Shake with ice and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with orange zest.

This cocktail pairs excellently with the novel The Black Dahlia by James Ellroy (available at Arcata's Northtown Books). For more about the Black Dahlia murder case, check Wikipedia.
