Black Magic Cocktail

-

2 1/2 ounces black vodka, see note

3/4 ounce fresh lime juice

3/4 ounce simple syrup, see note

Edible pearl dust, optional, see note

Notes: Black vodka is made by Blavod, but it can be hard to find. Make your own by adding black food coloring or gel into a bottle of vodka, a few drops at a time, and shaking until it becomes black. Or add blue, red and green food coloring or gel into a bottle of vodka, a few drops at a time, and shake until it becomes black.

To make simple syrup, boil together equal amounts of water and granulated sugar, stirring occasional­ly, until the sugar dissolves; can be stored in a clean jar in the refrigerat­or for several months.

Edible pearl dust can be found at baking supply stores or in the baking aisle of craft stores. Do not use similar products that do not specifical­ly say they are edible.

Directions: Place black vodka, lime juice and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker, add ice and shake until cold. Sprinkle edible pearl dust in bottom of a martini or coupe glass. Strain in drink. Add more pearl dust if it is not shimmery enough; stir with a bar spoon to combine it.

Serves 1.
