Mixologists Rachel Kling and Sophie Szych created the “Mist of the Abyss” for ARTINI, which has top area mixologists compete to mix the best martini. As part of the competition, the “artinis” must be inspired by works in the Corcoran’s collection. Kling and Szych chose Frederic Edwin Church’s Niagara because they loved the deep emerald of the water as well as the frothy and foamy texture.Why “Mist of the Abyss”? The name refers to the board that gives tours at the bottom of the falls (named Maid of the Mist). The drink also incorporated a mist of Homericon, a liquor made from the resin of the mastic trees in Greece, as a garnish. Now, make it at home!
