The Dark Knight Rises, the third mega-blockbuster Batman movie from director Christopher Nolan opens tonight at 12:01 a.m. in theaters all over the Southland (find a theater near you here or click here for IMAX showings).
Riding this Batmobile bandwagon for all it's worth are many companies, LA Cocktails Examiners included.
Campari spirits developed the Gotham Chill, a dark n' bitter concoction that mixes port wine, Campari, and high-proof Wild Turkey whiskey. Best enjoy this after you get home from the theater, to chill you out after the sure-to-be-intense audio-visual experience starring Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Gary Oldman, Liam Neeson, Michael Caine, and Tom Hardy as the villain Bane. The port and 101-proof whiskey should be enough to soothe your adrenalized senses.
1 oz Campari®
1 oz Wild Turkey® 101
¾ oz Ruby Port
5 drops of Orange Blossom Water
2 dashes of Orange Bitters
Stir all ingredients, except orange blossom water, in a mixing glass briefly. Add 5 drops orange blossom water over ice in rocks glass. Strain liquid in mixing glass into rocks glass. Garnish with ground cinnamon and an orange half-wheel.
