The Black Widow Cocktail is a dark, shimmery, and deceptively sweet cocktail. It is the perfect spooky sipper for Halloween and the next instalment of my Marvel Cocktail Series. It's made with gin, crème de mûre, and black sesame syrup. It's sweet, a little nutty, and visually awesome.

Black Widow Cocktail

A little refreshing beverage for the darker hours of the night. Easy to make, for a single drink or for a whole group of people. Use tall, short stubby or martini glassware, any of it will work! My favorite is to pour this drink over ice, so I use a Tall cocktail glass, with little sword picks to hold the blackberry.

Like a Black Widow spider, this drink might just make you lose your mind….over how tasty they are.

6 oz blackberry juice
1 oz simple syrup
2 oz vodka
Ice cubes
Blackberries on toothpick or other type food stick for garnish (frozen or fresh)

Mix all ingredients together in a shaker or just pour each ingredient over ice into the glass and stir.

To make Blackberry Juice:

3 quarts of fresh blackberries or 3 (16 ounce) packages of frozen berries
1 cup of water

Mash up blackberries, add in water. Strain mixture into bowl.

To make Simple Syrup

1 cup water
1 cup sugar

Bring water to boil, slowly add in sugar. Reduce heat to low and stir for about 2 minutes. Cool.

Refrigerate all left over juice and syrup. Juice will last about a week, syrup up to three weeks.
