Your Name (optional)
Your cocktail recipe.
I am head bartender of Michael Symon’s Roast in Detroit and this is one of our most popular cocktails. Certainly, the name Skeleton Key was the first thing that popped into my head when considering a Halloween themed cocktail. In addition to the name, this cocktail has a very aggressive taste at the beginning because of the bitters and then finishes extremely balanced with a soft finished. The bitters, have a dark fall spice, is a perfect fit of Halloween!
Tips and Tricks
- All ingredients poured over ice in a Collins glass
- Garnished with a heavy portion of Angostura Bitters (About 8 dashes floating on top)
- Try drinking without straw to get the full effect from the bitters
