Black Lagoon CocktailPrint Recipe
- 1.8l water
- 3 tablespoons fennel
- 3 to 6 drops black food coloring
- 240 ml vodka
- 120 ml fresh lemon juice
Bring the water and aniseed to a boil in a saucepan.
Remove from heat, and let cool for 30 minutes.
Strain through a fine sieve (and discard solids), then stir in the food colouring.
Pour into ice cube trays (preferably square), and freeze.
Combine vodka and juice in a cocktail shaker.
To serve multiple cocktails, multiply and mix the vodka and lemon juice in a pitcher. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve up to 3 hours.
Pour mixture into glasses over licorice ice cubes.
The drink is clear when first poured, but starts to blacken as the ice cubes melt.
