The Boy and his Poison: The Dark Knight

I'm going to level with you all, I'm fairly tense right now. In approximately 30 minutes I will be giving Anne Hathaway the opportunity to usurp the object of my adolescent dreams. Sure, I'll also be excitedly drinking in the final installment of Chris Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy (and more importantly hoping no one's noticed I've skipped out of work early) but the key thing is whether tonight I'll have to write a letter to Michelle Pfieffer to explain why, with regret, she has been relegated to my backup Catwoman.

I'm no comic book junkie but even I'm excited about this particular summer blockbuster and with so many different angles to explore it felt like a great start for a cocktail. There's the feline route, perhaps the sort of drinks I'm sure Bruce Wayne would go for, or maybe even the cliched 'bat' avenue. I eschewed all those in favour of making our own Dark Knight cocktail (preferably without having to go out and buy black vodka). A bit of research, some blue curacao and a dash of Chambord later I found a recipe as dark as our hero but with the taste of blue-raspberry slush puppies.

You'll need:
  • 50ml vodka, you won't taste it so feel free to go cheap
  • 25ml blue curacao
  • 25ml Chambord (or Cassis) 
  • Blueberries to garnish
Make it
  • Shake the ingredients over ice till chilled
  • Strain into a martini or coupe glass
  • Garnish with either blackberries or blueberries


  1. My favourite cocktail recipe ever. I especially like 'you won't taste it so feel free to go cheap'. Keeping it classy.
