Here is wickedly delicious black widow cocktail made with fresh blackberries , vodka and simple syrup.
Since Halloween is around the corner, I decided to make some adult cocktail. Hubby had bought some fresh blackberries from the store, so I thought maybe I can make black widow cocktail. I have seen this cocktail with tequila, and vodka. I made it with vodka.
I don’t know why this drink is called black widow cocktail. May be cause of its color which resembles to black widow spider. This is simple cocktail; you need fresh blackberry juice, lemon juice, simple syrup and vodka.
I thought adding some dry ice to get a spooky effect but didn’t get time to buy the dry ice just before making cocktail. Once you get the dry ice it needs to be used immediately, you can’t store it in regular refrigerator. So, tried to create smoke with burned cinnamon sticks I don’t think it gives the same effect as dry ice, not that spooky as I wished.
I am still baby in black photography so if you think about any tips that I can use, make please let me know. If you are planning a Halloween party then gives it a try it is delicious and easy to put together less than 10 minutes.
I am planning to make ghost bread sticks also for this Halloween. After all Halloween is a time to dress up, eat and enjoy. My kids already decided their costumes, as usual we don’t dress up. I need to get some candy to give to trick-o-treaters. I am a last minute shopper.
Coming to this cocktail, first make the blackberry lemon juice and then add vodka and simple syrup and enjoy with ice. I have made Hitchcock’s rum punch for last Halloween. This time this black widow cocktail. If you want spooky effect add some dry ice and enjoy, sure your guest will love it. It is sweet cocktail.
Blackberry and vodka did wonders here.
