To make a La Brea Tar Pit cocktail, you will need a few key ingredients and some basic bartending skills. First, gather a shaker, a strainer, and a few ice cubes. You will also need a cocktail glass to serve the drink in.
To start, add a generous amount of ice to the shaker. Next, add in 2 ounces of bourbon and 1 ounce of amaretto. These two ingredients will provide a rich and complex flavor to the cocktail.
Next, add in 1 ounce of freshly squeezed lemon juice. This will bring a tangy and refreshing element to the cocktail.
Now it is time to add in the secret ingredient that gives this cocktail its dark and mysterious color. Add 1/2 ounce of activated charcoal syrup to the shaker. This syrup is readily available at specialty stores and adds a unique twist to the cocktail.
Once all the ingredients are in the shaker, give it a good shake for about 10-15 seconds. This will ensure that all the flavors are well mixed and the drink is chilled.
Now it is time to strain the cocktail into a cocktail glass. Place a strainer over the glass and pour the mixture from the shaker into the glass, making sure to leave any ice behind.
Finally, garnish the La Brea Tar Pit cocktail with a lemon twist or a cherry. This will add a pop of color and a hint of freshness to the drink.
Serve the La Brea Tar Pit cocktail immediately and enjoy the dark, mysterious flavors that this unique cocktail offers. It is a perfect drink for any occasion, whether you are hosting a party or simply relaxing at home.
