We created this cocktail recipe as a nod to Día de los Muertos and the classic, colorful sugar skulls that are so much a part of the celebration of honoring the dead. If you can’t find blackberry juice, you can easily swap that ingredient for cranberry juice.
- 4 oz lemon-flavored vodka
- 4 drops orange-flavored bitters
- 8 oz blackberry juice, Club soda, Blackberries, Ice
- Dell Cove Spices’ Midnight Black Cocktail Rim Sugar, simple syrup (for moistening the glass rims for sugar garnish)
Rim your chilled bar glasses with Dell Cove Spice Co.’s Midnight Black cocktail rim sugar. Fill glasses with ice, then set aside.
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine vodka, blackberry juice and bitters. Shake vigorously, and then strain into rimmed glasses. Top glasses off with club soda and garnish with berries.
