A Spontaneous Libation for your Consideration

Faceless Man

1 1⁄2 oz Singani, Singani 63
3⁄4 oz Bianco Vermouth, Dolin (clear vermouth works best)
1⁄4 oz Triple sec, Combier L'Original Liqueur D'Orange (clear triple sec works best)
1 t Mezcal, Del Maguey Vida (smoky)
Instructions

Stir with ice. Strain into rocks glass over ice. Float Mezcal.

History

This is an original drink inspired by Game of Thrones. This liquid offering is named after the team of assassins called Faceless Men, who worship the Many-Faced God (aka the God of Death).

Aesthetically, the drink is hidden in plain sight and cannot be visually identified, much like the drink's namesake. It blends into its surroundings. The clear liquid doesn't give away what's in the glass. But the cocktail is complex, yet balanced, fruity, yet smokey and a smooth sipper.

It's important that all the components be clear. The Singani and White Vermouth should be no problem, but the Orange Liqueur and Mezcal sometimes come in other colors. For the Orange Liqueur, Cointreau is ideal, but if you have Combier or Luxardo Triplum or another clear Orange Liqueur, that will work.

Because it's so smooth, light and complex, The Faceless Man is a great companion to Game of Thrones. Be sure to mix one up before you sit down to watch the show...or curl up with the book. Cheers!

Welcome to the new Kindred Cocktails

We've completely redesigned and rewritten Kindred Cocktails. Cosmetically, we've updated it to modern web standards. You'll find it much easier and more complete on mobile devices. Most every feature has been retained and a few new ones added. Some features have moved to new, more logical places. And inside almost 95% of the code has been updated or rewritten. Explore. Let us know if you find anything that doesn't work as you'd expect.

If you've contributed cocktails, you'll find that our philosophy on submissions has changed. Previously we accepted recipes that weren't in conformance with our Style Guidelines. They were not published, but you could keep them in your cocktail book. All these private cocktails weren't shared, and this ran contrary to our concept of kindred -- a community of like-minded cocktail lovers. So now we accept only three unpublished cocktails at a time. Unpublished cocktails should be improved to meet our style guidelines and re-submitted for publication. Or merged into another existing cocktail. Or even deleted if not of sufficient quality. We hope this change creates a database of high-quality recipes for everyone to enjoy.

To help you keep track of your personal variation on a cocktail's ingredients, each cocktail book entry can have custom ingredients. Use the Paste Recipe button, then customize the ingredients to your liking. When you view the cocktail's page, you can see either your custom ingredients or the official ingredients.

We hope you'll enjoy the new version. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook if you'd like.

    Using Creme of Coconut (1:1 sugar to coconut milk), this was a delicious drink. Well balanced with some funk from the dark rum and orgeat, but without the heavy marzipan some orgeat drinks can get. A great staple.

    Super funky drink, but all comes together well. Great for something different.

    Subbed the Uigeadail with Wee Beastie. Still had to double the Frangelico to be recognizable.

    The liqueur they're using here is 60 proof. Some people might want to drop the simple. Thanks, Zachary

    I find lemon juice overpowers more subtle flavors, so I dial it back to 1/2 ounce here. Tasty!
