American Horror Story is baaaaack! If you think your nerves might be a little shaky for the frightful premiere Wednesday night, maybe a cocktail will take the edge off.

Here’s just the thing to help you keep your cool and have fun too. Los Angeles mixologist Rob Floyd (of Bar Centro, in PEOPLE hot spot the SLS Hotel) has created a drink called the Living Shadow that combines the tartness of red grapes and lemon juice with spicy Basil Hayden’s bourbon. To honor the show’s disturbing tone, the libation is topped off with an eerie red wine float.

To make your own, check out the recipe below. American Horror Story airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on FX.
