Perfect Dark - the drink

Here we go again - invented and perfected on one intersting night celebrating my good friend Drew's engagement in Glasgow a few short weeks ago...

The Perfect Dark is not for the faint hearted!

In a long glass (it's a ladie's drink after all!) mix:

1 shot Gin
Dash of bitters
1 shot Blue Sambuca
1 shot Red Sambuca

Fill to the brim with Tonic (Lemonade if you want it sweeter), then mix.

Inspired by the game of the same name, its English, its dark, its strong and a little bit harsh. It is also perfectly clear until you add the Sambuca.

Feel free to try Black Sambuca, the bar we were in didn't have any so we improvised with Red and Blue, although I like to think that the Red signifies the violence of the game, while the Blue is the cool headed spy...
