Death & Co creates Alienist-inspired cocktails
New York bar Death & Co has partnered with broadcaster TNT to create a cocktail menu that celebrates the release of the second series of The Alienist: Angel of Darkness.
To mark the return of the hit show, which stars Dakota Fanning, Daniel Brühl and Luke Evans, Death & Co has created 10 exclusive cocktails inspired by the drama, its characters, and the 19th century.
Cocktails created by the team include Matron of the Arts, which is made with Scotch whisky, vermouth, creme de cacao, Peychaud’s Bitters and Campari, and the Kreizler’s Glass (pictured), which combines Bourbon, apple brandy, vermouth, amaretto and Angostura Bitters.
The menu also features Moores Lemonade, made with gin, lemon juice, earl grey tea and sparkling wine, and the Superior Sleuth, which combines Bourbon, coffee liqueur, maraschino, Chartreuse and Angostura Bitters.
Alongside the new cocktails, Death & Co has created two videos featuring head bartender Shannon Tebay, which provide insight into The Alienist and the characters from the show. Each video covers the history and culture of drinking in New York during the 19th century, and walks the audience through one of the whiskey-based cocktails inspired by the show’s characters.
The first video features the Sara’s Evening Ritual Cocktail and can be viewed below.
