The Deep Throat – An X-Files Inspired Cocktail

Season one X-Files fans, we got your favorite mystery man covered!

Hubby and I came up with this twist on a classic cocktail to honor Deep Throat, from Season One of the The X-Files. (I am going to have to rename this blog The Booze Is Out There with all of the X-Files inspired boozy concoctions we keep coming up with while we embark on an epic binge watching of one of our favorite shows!)

For those of you who are confused to all heck, the character Deep Throat (played by Jerry Hardin) was an informant in the first season of The X-Files, leaking information to FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder to aid Mulder’s investigation of paranormal cases. The creation of Deep Throat was inspired by the historical Deep Throat, Mark Felt, who leaked information on the Watergate scandal.

This creation of ours is a modern twist on a classic New Orleans cocktail, the Vieux Carre. The Vieux Carre was named after the French term for the The French Quarter – le Vieux Carré (“Old Square”).

I decided to use the main base elements of this drink for this character inspired cocktail, because I wanted to go with a complex old world style scotch and cognac based cocktail.. something you would expect Watergate-era good old boys to be imbibing in the back rooms of the Pentagon.

And no government informant back room talk is complete without dark smoky shadows, so I threw in some liquid smoke for good measure (which is a really exciting umami element I have been seeing hit the cocktail scene, and I was itching to try!).

The effect was just what I was looking for! So cheers to our favorite first season martyr! This drink is freaking tasy. But remember…. Trust no one! Try it for yourself and see! 😉


How to Make:

Half shot of Scotch Whisky

Half shot of Cognac

Half shot of Sweet Vermouth

3-4 drops of Liquid Smoke

Pinch of Sea Salt

Lemon twist for garnish

Add the scotch, cognac and sweet vermouth to a shaker with ice.

Shake and strain into a highball glass with ice.

Add the drops of liquid smoke, and sprinkle a little bit of the sea salt over the liquid.

Garnish and enjoy!

Okay folks, I am having a blast with these X-Files inspired drinks, and as long as I am not boring you guys to heck, I am gonna keep playing around with these yummy ideas!

Any ideas or recommendations for inspired cocktails? I am all ears!
