  1. Pour the vodka into a measuring jug and add the food colouring, a drop at a time, until you have a good black colour.
  2. Take 4 tall, narrow glasses and divide the orange juice between them. Add 1 tsp of grenadine to each glass, this creates a cool sunrise effect. Using the back of a spoon slowly and carefully pour the black vodka onto each of the drinks in turn, it will sit on the top in a neat layer. Serve immediately with a liquorice twist in each glass.
