BLACK MARKET DEBUTS DEVIL WEARS NADA COCKTAIL -Downtown
Starting Monday, 26th through Halloween, sports fans and cocktail enthusiasts can enjoy a Devil Wears Nada ($13). Whether spooky visitors desire a trick-or-treat, this exclusive drink hits sweet and savory notes making it very easy drinking. Bar Manager Johnny McConnon wanted to put an elegant spin on the Negroni while also giving it a hint of hocus pocus. The Devil Wears Nada features Tullamore D.E.W. XO Caribbean Rum Cask, Campari a dash of Grenadine rimmed with a smoked citrus zest which is then garnished with two devilish peppadew peppers and a skull-shaped ice-cube. Tullamore D.E.W. finishes their whiskey in casks that previously held Caribbean rum which gives the cocktail an essence of fruit while maintaining the classic Tullamore D.E.W. character. Taste the cauldron bubble during their quarantined headquarters party on Halloween night!
