Halloween has become a holiday of such popularity it seems to outsell Christmas in decorating costs. Lawns of inflated ghosts and huge animals; more witches and wizards than a Hogwarts reunion; and tons of candy to hauled away by the young. In the midst of all this hysteria, here’s a themed drink to celebrate getting past it.
1 ounce vodka
1 ounce blackberry syrup
3 ounces dry red wine
1/4 ounce lime juice
Chilled soda water.
Place 2 or 3 icecubes in a stemmed goblet. Pour in vodka, syrup, wine, and lime juice. Stir to combine. Top with chilled soda. Garnish with h an orange wedge with teeth cut into one side.
Boo! Mocktail: Replace vodka with 1 ounce of orange juice; replace red wine with additional soda.
