1 oz Mezcal, Sombra
1 oz Añejo tequila, Alma
1⁄4 oz Fernet Vallet
1 bsp Agave syrup (1:1)
1 Orange peel (garnish)

Stir all ingredients, strain into chilled coupe or Nick & Nora glass. Garnish with expressed orange swath.


One of the first cocktails I made after getting a bottle of Fernet Vallet. It's incredibly inky black color infuses every drink with a rich dark hue, hence the name (and a shout out to Alex Proyas' underrated "Dark City" flick)
