Imbibing Mr. Boston: Black Devil Cocktail

IMG_3635-800This cocktail is somebody’s twisted idea of a Martini from an alternate universe.  Surprisingly, it works quite well.  Perhaps too well, as I was staring at an empty glass in a matter of a few minutes.

I like the idea or combining rum and vermouth.  Why not?  The black olive garnish is just plain fun and makes for an interesting visual effect.  I think that a few dashes of orange bitters, or barring that, a lemon twist would make this complete.

Black Devil
2oz light rum
0.5oz dry vermouth
Garnish: black olive

Stir with ice and strain into chilled cocktail glass. Add olive.
