A rich, dessert-like cocktail fit for only the true Sith Lord. I was inspired by Star Wars when I wanted to include a rinse of Green Chartreuse, reminding me of Anakin Skywalker's green lightsaber as a young padawan. His terse, stoic manner always reminded me that of my old-fashioned Irish relatives so I felt like this espresso martini riff would allow Mr. Skywalker to lighten up, whether the setting being at a cantina on Tattooine or in his quarters on the Death Star. Notes: Anise, fennel, blueberry, apples, almond, chocolate.

Ingredients

 0.75 fl oz Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 1.50 fl oz Irish Whiskey
 2 dashes Cocoa Bitters(Angostura)
 0.50 fl oz Guinness Simple Syrup
 1.00 fl oz Fresh Espresso
 4 drops Green Chartreuse (rinse of glass)

Directions

1

Guinness Simple Syrup: A 1-1 ratio of Guinness to pure cane sugar. Bring Guinness and sugar to a simmer until sugar is fully dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool, then bottle.

2

Add cocoa bitters, Guinness Simple Syrup, Espresso, Mr. Black, and Irish Whiskey to shaker tin

3

Chill your cocktail glass

4

Once chilled, give your cocktail glass a Green Chartreuse rinse. For the best effect, use a spray bottle/atomizer to create a uniform rinse on your glass

5

Add ice to shaker. To allow for aeration of the espresso, give a short, energetic shake to the ingredients, no more than 8-10 seconds

6

Single strain into your glass and wait for drink to settle in order to allow for foamy head to form

7

Garnish with grated nutmeg and a single anise "death star"

8

Enjoy!
