Bloody Marys and Corpse Revivers fit the upcoming haunted holiday, but to celebrate, we created our own potion: the Vampire’s Kiss. Dark berry flavors blend perfectly with tart lime juice and smooth vodka, making this oxblood colored drink as tempting as it is macabre. Served up in our skull and crossbones crystal glasses and decanter, it’s fit for the most dangerous vampires and wicked witches, and certain to send a shiver down your spine. You’re certain to crave more once you’ve been “bitten”…
To recreate this frightful potion for Halloween guests and friends, follow our easy recipe:
3-4 fresh blackberries (plus more for garnish)
Sparkling blackberry juice or soda
Vodka of choice
Add 1 ounce vodka, 1/2 oz cranberry juice, a splash of lime juice, and blackberries to a cocktail shaker. Muddle berries thoroughly. Add ice, shake, and strain into a chilled glass. Top with sparkling blackberry juice and garnish with remaining berries. Enjoy!
*Note: if using unsweetened 100% cranberry juice, omit lime juice.
