Black lava salt, or coarse black sugar, for rim (optional)
1/2 cup apple cider
2 tablespoons pomegranate juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 ounces vodka or apple vodka
1/8 teaspoon activated charcoal for coloring (could also use black food dye) (optional)
Dry ice (optional)
1. If desired, rim your martini glass with black lava salt or coarse black sugar.
2. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the cider, pomegranate juice, lemon, vodka, and activated charcoal, if using. Shake to combine.
3. Strain into prepared martini glass. Add a very, very small amount of dry ice, if desired and be sure to wait until the ice fully dissolves to drink or serve as dry ice can be dangerous if it has yet to melt.

Mixology Lab: Artichokie? The Search & Rescue and The Boulevardier
The Search & Rescue
1.25 OZ RYE
.75 OZ RUBY PORT
.75 OZ LEMON JUICE
.5 OZ SIMPLE SYRUP
.5 OZ CYNAR
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.
Shake and double strain into a rocks glass.
Created by Blake Pope, beverage director at Kindred Restaurant in Davidson, North Carolina, this ruby port-enhanced Whiskey Sour transcends trends and seasons. “I use Quinta de Novol’s ruby port—a younger style that’s jammy and rich—which gives this cocktail loads of body,” Pope says. “The port also softens and sweetens a bracing combination of overproof rye whiskey, lemon juice and the bitter Italian digestif Cynar.” Shaken together, the cocktail is downright addictive and amazingly good with Southern food like fried chicken and country ham biscuits.
1 1/4 ounce bourbon or rye
1 ounce Campari
1 ounce sweet vermouth
Garnish: orange peel
Add all ingredients into a mixing glass with ice and stir until chilled.
Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice.
Garnish with an orange peel.
Loosely translated, a boulevardier is a man-about-town. The cocktail by the same name was created by Erskine Gwynne, the publisher of “Boulevardier,” a magazine for expats living in Paris in the 1920s. It’s a tidy story, just like the drink it inspired. Equal parts whiskey, vermouth and Campari, the Boulevardier is both adaptable and adored for its balance of bitter, boozy and sweet. Choose your ingredients wisely. The best Boulevardier, like the best Negroni, hinges on a happy marriage between base spirit and vermouth.
