If you’ve had the pleasure of a night out at Warwick, one of LA’s hottest bar makeovers, then chances are you’ve come across the Black Dahlia. Sinister as it may sound, this cocktail will keep you coming back for more. Something about the enchanting cocktail- perhaps the stunning presentation, perhaps the sweet, tart, tropical, brooding flavor profile, seems otherworldly. It haunted us long enough, we knew it had to be ours. And now it is. Good luck.
