If you're looking to commemorate this Halloween with something other than candy, here's a recipe for you. It comes from the Gallery Bar at Los Angeles' Millennium Biltmore Hotel. The Gallery Bar holds the honor of being the last place that actress Elizabeth Short, also known as "the Black Dahlia," was seen alive before her murder in 1947. Sixty years later, the murder is still a mystery, but this drink named after the actress doesn't take a detective to make.
Save this recipe to enjoy tonight after the trick-or-treaters go home.
