The martini, just like other gin cocktails, has persevered in relevance more than many other cocktails. The beauty of the martini is that there are so many variations on it. Since they are gin-based cocktails, however, they often very rarely change in appearance or color. Well, enter the Black Martini.

Often associated with Halloween or a good way to switch up your martini to its “evil twin”, if you will, this is a fun way to enjoy one of the most popular tradition cocktails in the world. There are also many variations on the Black Martini, depending on your preferences.


  • 2 ounces of gin
  • 1 ounce of blue curacao
  • ½ ounce of black raspberry liqueur
  • Ice


  1. Just like most martinis, the process of making a black martini begins with pouring the ingredients, along with the ice, into the cocktail shaker.
  2. Shake properly.
  3. Strain into a cocktail glass (often chilled).


  • Cocktail shaker
  • Cocktail glass

It should be noted that some people prefer to use vodka for a black martini instead of gin, although it is traditionally a gin cocktail. One particular reason for this is because there is actually black vodka that is sold widely, whether it is an Absolut or Blavod bottle. However, for those who have their favorite brand of clear vodka, food coloring can also be used to make the martini black. Some people also use Chambord in theirs, although this is less popular. The Black Martini is a festive way to enjoy a darker version of the martini, and is a fun way to switch things up, no matter what variation you choose. Drink responsibly!
