It seems like we do a ton of horror related recipes. This isn’t too far from the truth. We can’t help that so many great horror films are coming out. However, this will be the last horror recipe for a while. That being said, our final recipe of 2017 is inspired by Insidious: The Last Key. The Insidious franchise is one of our favorites. Basically, anything James Wan produces is a winner with us. Instead of going for a food item, we decided to create The Further, a cocktail named directly for its inspiration from the film.
“The creative minds behind the hit Insidious trilogy return for Insidious: The Last Key. In the supernatural thriller, which welcomes back franchise standout Lin Shaye as Dr. Elise Rainier, the brilliant parapsychologist faces her most fearsome and personal haunting yet: in her own family home.”
We were super stoked to finally do a recipe for the Insidious franchise. Not only that, but the film of the series in which Lin Shaye is the lead. Lin Shaye has been in so many horror films, it is great seeing her in the spotlight! This cocktail was inspired by the visuals of The Further. Smoky and dark, we wanted this cocktail to not only taste a little smoky (thanks to the Ancho Reyes) but also look it.
