It’s almost the weekend, and its almost the weekend before Halloween so you know what that means. I’ll be sipping this concoction from the comfort of my home and avoiding all of the ‘adults’ out and about partying this weekend. But if you’re hosting a shin-dig or looking to celebrate with some boo-ze try this cocktail! It’s super simple and so good and doesn’t have to be enjoyed just around Halloween.
Black Widow Cocktail
3 pints of blackberries
1/2 cup water
1//4 cup sugar
Extra blackberries for garnish
Begin by placing the blackberries and water in a blender. Blend well and strain. Add the blackberry juice and sugar and bring to a simmer. Cook until the sugar dissolves. For each drink, combine 6 ounces of blackberry syrup, 2 ounces of vodka, and ice in a glass. Stir well. Garnish with fresh berries.
You could get even spookier by adding a cube of dry ice to the glass before serving! So sinister! Note that if you are using dry ice to take the proper precautions. As always, have a safe and spooky Halloween!
