As it turns out the drink is intentionally black or dark-grey / black with tinge of red - obviously to match Darth Vader's shiny black armor and bright red light saber. My daughter and I made it with no condiments or accoutrements, but just to match the theme if I were to picture it, I might want to add a red straw and maraschino cherry.
Anyway, here's what you'll need to make this cloying, yet harsh, concoction:
One-and-a-Half ounces of VSOP Brandy
Three-Quarters of an ounce of Blue Curacao
Three-Quarters of an ounce of Creme de Cacao
Three-Quarters of an ounce of Raspberry Syrup
One to Two Tablespoons of Chocolate Syrup (Toriani, Hershey's, or Fox's - your choice)
Shake with Ice and Serve in a Rock Glass with ice, and as I said, maybe a Red Straw and a maraschino cherry.
I personally think it came out nicely, but there is a caution here that the chocolatey and fruity sweetness might obscure the alcohol content. So plan accordingly if you're going to have more than one.
Till next time.
