As this new, and hopefully not last, season (we’re looking at you Fox and hoping that this was a test to see if folks are still interested.  Just so you know… we are!) of X-Files comes to a close… we thought it might be nice to offer up a recipe to help ease the pain.

This Black Oil Martini is as sweet as it is deadly.  Skeptical? Just give it a try.  A few of these and we’re pretty sure, that you’ll believe just about anything!

Black Oil Martini

Serves 2


  • 3 oz. black rum
  • 1 1/2 oz. crème de cacao
  • 1 1/2 cups of ice
  • black food coloring

Add black rum, cream de cacao, ice and 2 drops of food coloring to cocktail shaker and shake.

Strain into glass and enjoy!
Black Oil Martini

The perfect drink to serve next time a member of the Syndicate drops by.  And, if that member happens to be our personal favorite X-Files baddie, Cigarette Smoking/Cancer Man.  You’ll also want to make sure you have plenty of packs of Morleys on hand.

We made ours with this amazing free printable from Home Pacific.

Bottoms up!


Martini based on the Black Widow Martini by Betty Crocker!
