Silver Bullet Recipe

The Silver Bullet is a drink from the 1920s. Kummel Wolfschmidt and gin have a silvery taste when mixed, so we took it a step further and added an element of real silver.
SIlver Bullet Recipe

"Werewolves, beware: it tastes silvery."

Servings: 1
Prep time: 35 minutes
Total time: 35 minutes


for the colloidal silver:
3 1/3 ounces filtered water
2 pieces of solid silver wire

for the Silver Bullet:
1 1/4 ounces gin
1/2 ounce Kummel Wolfschmidt liqueur
1/2 ounces colloidal silver


1) For the colloidal silver, place the water in a glass and cover with cling film. At opposite ends of the glass, push the silver rods through the cling so that they are half exposed and half submerged. Attach a 6-volt battery to the exposed ends of the rods and set a timer for 30 minutes. Remove the battery and rods once time is completed and store water in a vacuum-sealed bag. Make sure silver used is solid and not plated silver.

2) Combine the gin, Kummel Wolfschmidt, and colloidal silver in a bottle and store in the fridge to chill before service. Serve the mix directly from the bottle in a chilled large liqueur glass with hairy stem.
