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