The Dark Mark Martini is a cocktail inspired by the Harry Potter movies. The dark mark appears high in the sky shaped from clouds as a colossal, glittering green light that forms a skull with a snake protruding from its mouth.

There is no snake in this cocktail, but I did achieve dark and creepy!
What is The Dark Mark?
The dark mark is the sign of Lord Voldemort and is used to summon his Death Eaters (followers). It refers to both the magically induced brand (tattoo) that every death eater has on his or her left forearm, as well as the symbol summoned in the sky by the Morsmordre spell.
The mark represents immortality and power, the two things that Voldemort wants more than anything!

🍸What does this cocktail taste like?
The first thing that popped into my head was “tutti frutti”. Blue Curaçao is an orange liqueur, Chambord is black raspberry flavored, and the Irish whiskey adds some depth.
It is a sweet drink with a definite kick to it!

🔷 Recipe Notes & Tips:
- I placed a plastic ice cube in the center of the martini glass and set the skull on top to keep it from flipping on its side.
