Published in 1895, Robert Chambers’s collection The King in Yellow is the story of a fictional play which causes people to go insane after reading it. A recurring motif is obsession with the color yellow, leaving one character to ask, “Have you seen the Yellow Sign?” Inspired by strange, more bizarre ingredients, we set out to create a spicy, sweet-and-sour mustard syrup, which we pair with smoky infused mescal and earthy parsnip juice. A perfect cocktail for those imbibers who crave a maddening, wide-eyed savory experience.
