Black Destroyer

Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 26, 2020

Here is a cocktail I put together as an homage to Canadian-American writer A. E. Van Vogt, who was one of my favourite science fiction writers as I was growing up. His short story Black Destroyer (July 1939, Astounding Science Fiction)  is credited by Isaac Asimov as being the seminal story which ushered in the Golden Age of Science Fiction.

My Black Destroyer is a delicious drink which pairs Cask Strength Rye Whisky with Pot Still Jamaican Rum, and an Agave based orange liqueur. It packs a powerful wallop so I recommend limiting yourself to one serving per evening.

1 1/2 oz Alberta Premium Cask Strength Rye Whisky
1/2 oz Rum Nation Jamaica Pot Still 7 Year Old Rum
1/2 oz Patrón Citrónge (Agave based Orange Liqueur)
1/3 oz Grapefruit Juice
1/3 oz Lime Juice
a few dashes of Angostura Cocktail Bitters
1/3 oz Sugar Syrup (1:1 ratio)
Ice
Grapefruit Twist

Add the ingredients into a metal shaker with plenty of ice
Shake until the outside of the shaker begins to frost
Strain into a cocktail glass
Garnish with a twist of Lime

Please Enjoy Responsibly!
