As promised, here’s the other cocktail I made up with Drink of the Week. It’s called Deadly Nightshade. Muhahaha!

The drink is a mix of black current juice, current liqueur, and bourbon. We also added some grapes in the glass for a creepy garnish. It’s a bit more manly tasting than the Blood Orange Margarita, but both drinks would be great at a Halloween party. Recipe:

Deadly Nightshade

Ingredients:

    1 1/2 oz bourbon
    2 oz black currant juice
    1/2 oz simple syrup
    1/2 oz. creme de cassis (current liqueur)
    club soda
    8 or so grapes to garnish


Directions:

Shake bourbon, juice, syrup, and liqueur over ice and strain into cocktail or old-fashioned glass. Add some ice and a small handful of red or black grapes. Top off with club soda. Enjoy.

Happy Halloween!
