Lucifer Fans Will Be Happy To Know The Satan's Whiskers Is A Real Cocktail. Here's What's In It

In Season 6, Episode 1 of "Lucifer," some of the characters celebrate exciting prospects that will develop throughout the season with a round of Satan's Whiskers. Because the show's called "Lucifer," like Satan before the fall. Get it?

Anyway, as Guilty Eats points out, Satan's Whiskers is not a fictional cocktail invented to fit in the show's aesthetic but an actual drink. It's also a pretty simple cocktail to make. Imbibe lists the ingredients for Satan's Whiskers as follows: gin, the orange-flavored liqueur Grand Mariner, sweet vermouth, dry vermouth, orange juice, and a dash of orange bitters. To make the drink, all you have to do is pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker and – well – shake. Imbibe does note that there is a variation to this recipe that calls for Curacao instead of Grand Mariner, but the change is more of a different shade than shaping the taste differently. 

The Spruce Eats details the alcohol level of the drink, saying that it is a relatively mild martini with only 18% ABV. However, you might still get tipsy after a few glasses. Enjoy!

Satan's Whiskers is a twist on a classic cocktail

Satan's Whiskers might sound familiar for more reasons than the show "Lucifer" or the biblical imagery conjured by Satan. As Punch details, the drink is, in fact, a variation on a venerable classic cocktail: The Bronx. Barina Craft explains that the drink dates back to sometime near 1900. According to one origin story, it's called The Bronx because a few days before Johnnie Solon supposedly improvised the cocktail in response to a dare, he had visited the Bronx Zoo. According to Kitchen Riffs, a cocktail expert claimed Satan's Whiskers got its name from a common exclamation in the 1920s.

The recipe for The Bronx, which Paste magazine provides, calls for gin, sweet vermouth, dry vermouth, and orange juice. A variant of The Bronx calls for an egg yolk to be tossed into the shaker as well. But essentially, it's Satan's Whiskers without the additional orange liqueur. Both drinks will present you with a succulent martini. However, as of writing, Halloween is steadily approaching, so you really should go for the more diabolically named Satan's Whiskers.
