The Blackheart

  •  1 oz. Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum
  •  ½ oz. Fernet Branca
  •  1½ oz. Crème de Cacao Dark
  •  1/8 teaspoon squid ink (optional)
  •  ½ oz. Young's Chocolate Stout

Directions

Start by adding the spiced rum, Fernet, and crème de cacao to a shaker. Add the squid ink (careful—this stuff stains!). Give the ingredients a hard, dry shake (no ice). This will help thoroughly incorporate the ink. Fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously for a full 30 seconds so that the mix becomes cold and frothy. Double strain into a chilled cocktail glass and top with the chocolate stout.

  •  ½ oz. Plantation OFTD

Directions

Mix light and dark rum and brandy in a cocktail shaker, add lime juice and grenadine. Shake well and strain into a highball glass filled with cracked ice. Fill glass with orange juice, but leave enough room to float the OFTD rum on top. Garnish with a cherry and an orange slice.
