The obvious question to those who haven’t tried it:
Why is it called Serial Killer?
As those who have tried this deliciously deceptive drink know that while insanely smooth, there is a menacing undertone of alcohol lurking underneath. Behind its smooth flavor lies a combination of 90 proof Genever and 110 proof Green Chartreuse, averaging at about a 100 proof cocktail. The Nonino and Maraschino add a little contrast, further personified by the lavender bitters. This is a highly drinkable smooth and light treat, that is sure to sneak up and hit you so much harder than you would expect. Recommended for all, but especially if you like diamondback and widow’s kiss. While slightly lighter in alcohol than these two boozy drinks, it also tastes so much more unassuming. Just remember it is called Serial Killer for a reason. . .
