On Black Monday, 19 October 1987, when the world’s stock markets crashed, the Dow Jones dropped by what is still the greatest percentage loss of all time – more than 22 per cent.

By the end of the month, the Hong Kong stock market had almost halved in value, Australia's was down over 40 per cent and British stocks were worth less than three-quarters of what they had been two weeks before. In case this memory is too much, we suggest a Black Rose, a soft, Sazerac-style cocktail that should take the edge off most financial anxieties.
