Drink This Now: The Alienist-Inspired Sara’s Evening Ritual Cocktail At Death & Co.

The iconic bar institution, Death & Co, has created cocktails to celebrate the season two premiere of the TNT network series, The Alienist: Angel of Darkness. Created by Death & Co. New York’s Head Bartender, Shannon Tebay, Sara’s Evening Ritual cocktail is inspired by the character Sarah Howard and is a twist on the classic Gold Rush with a few variations to add complexity.

The series itself shines a light on the provocative issues of the turn of the 19th century – the corruption of institutions, income inequality, yellow press sensationalism, and the role of women in society. To toast the show’s season premiere, Death & Co bartenders created ten exclusive cocktails inspired by the show, its characters, and the era itself. We suggested Sara’s Evening Ritual as the ingredients are readily available and it is easy to make at home.

We love books, movies and shows about New York in the late 1800s, which was the former golden age of cocktails and the epicenter of the cocktail world. This Sunday, we’re stepping back in time to 1897 New York City and into the world of The Alienist: Angel of Darkness. Following the work of private detective Sara Howard and her team, @thealienisttnt is a thrilling, mysterious story of deceit and corruption. To celebrate the premiere — and Sara’s affinity for bourbon — we’re bringing a piece of the Angel of Darkness universe to you. Watch Death & Co New York Head Bartender Shannon Tebay (@shannontebay) share insights into late-1800s New York, Sara’s drink preferences, and an original cocktail inspired by Angel of Darkness. Visit the link in our bio for the full video, cocktail recipes, and more from Angel of Darkness, premiering Sunday at 9pm EST on @TNTDrama. #Ad
