  3. Shake it up: Shake the mixture vigorously for about 15-20 seconds until well-chilled. The shaker’s rhythm should resonate with the mysterious beats of the night.
  4. Strain and serve: Strain the vibrant liquid into the prepared glass filled with ice. The deep, mesmerizing hue of the cocktail is reminiscent of the midnight sky.
