The 'Revenge' cocktail: How to mix a Black Dahlia


November 16, 2011|By Curt Wagner | RedEye

If fans of ABC's "Revenge" feel like making a drinking game out of watching the soapy series, they now have a drink of choice: the Black Dahlia.

In Wednesday's episode, "Treachery," the real Emily Thorne--I'll call her Amanda (Margarita Levieva) to make things easier--mixed up a few Black Dahlias for herself and bar hunk Jack (Nick Wechsler). I looked around the web for the drink and found many versions of it. But not the "Revenge" version. So here's the recipe as Amanda said it:


  • 3 ounces of vodka
  • 1 ounce Creme de cassis
  • "A little" blackberry liqueur
  • Add ice and shake

She finished it off with a flirty smile and the decision (spoiler alert!) to not fly to Paris and get out of Emily's hair. Instead, she's opting to become a Jack stowaway. Get it? He runs the Stowaway Tavern?

Sorry. I've had a few Dahlias myself. One tip: Never drink these with someone carrying a tire iron. I'm talking about you, stripper girl!
