Nothing says romance like a crazed Canadian miner slaughtering kids who just want to dance. Where’s Kevin Bacon when you need him?
Shot: Mineshaft, the well-lit but still creepy set piece for the movie’s conclusion. How “He got the shaft” was never uttered in the movie feels like a missed opportunity.
1/2oz each Canadian whiskey and coffee liqueur
Cocktail: My Bloody Valentine, after the movie, not the band. Duh. We went for a chocolate-covered cherry taste and totally nailed it. High five.
Shake over ice: 1/4 each kirschwasser and dark creme de cacao; 1/2oz Irish cream; 1oz vodka. Strain into a champagne flute or similarly narrow glass. Garnish with a luxardo cherry on a pick balanced on the rim.
Happy belated Valentine’s Day! For our thoughts on the drinks, the movie, and a whole lot more, check out our patreon.
