Happy Hour: Black Widow

I've been on a crazed hunt for the perfect Halloween cocktail. I envisioned a black martini, but the only recipes I could find involved chocolate-flavored vodka. Don't get me wrong: There is a time and a place for chocolate vodka, but Halloween is not that time or place.

When I saw this recipe for a Black Widow, I assumed it involved chocolate, but —surprise! — it's actually dark grape juice that gives this drink a glorious hue. To get the devilishly delicious recipe I'll be making on All Hallow's Eve,

Black Widow
From 42 Below

1 part vodka
2 parts dark grape juice
1 teaspoon of raw sugar
4 slices of fresh ginger
4 blackberries
2 blackberries to garnish

  1. In a cocktail shaker*, muddle together blackberries, ginger and sugar.
  2. Add vodka and dark grape juice. Fill with ice, shake well, and strain into a chilled Martini glass.
  3. Garnish with 2 blackberries.

*To make a large batch, simply make in a big pitcher or large punch bowl.

For a Halloween twist on classic Vodka cocktails such as martini's or vodka+soda, try Blavod. It's a black vodka and the taste is not as strange as one might think.
