Chill Drink Alert: The Raven Cocktail

So I don’t know if you noticed, but all across America, many people have been cramming themselves into bars and living rooms every weekend to watch football. 

Well today, four teams will be competing for a crack at The Superbowl. Only two will make it. Because I don’t know much about football but still feel compelled to participate in an activity most of my friends are obsessed with, I’m going to align myself with one of those teams – New York Nets!!. Okay, honestly, I hope the NY Giants Win!!

The Raven is a dark and mysterious cocktail that is adapted from other recipes. It contains ingredients that are more common in bars than those found in other Ravens. The key to this drink is the layer which is rather easy to obtain in this mix as the blue shaken mix is much lighter than the Chambord and they rarely break the layers unless stirred.

1 oz vodka
1 oz rum
1 oz blue curacao
1/2 oz Chambord
Pour the vodka, rum and blue curacao into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Strain into a highball glass filled with fresh ice. Slowly pour the Chambord over the back of a bar spoon so it floats on top.
