Spider Bite Halloween Cocktail

I know that no holiday is complete without a signature cocktail. So, in the spirit of the Halloween, I decided to whip up something special. I'm calling it a spider bite. I made it with things we already had in our liquor cabinet. It's sweet and bright, and here is the recipe. Cheers!


1 1/2oz vodka

1oz Cassis Liquor

1/2oz St. Germain (Elderflower liquor)

Juice of half a lemon

Berry flavored sparkling water

Red sugar

 Pour red sugar onto a small plate and set aside. Cut lemon in half and run the cut side of the lemon around the rim of your martini glass. Dip the edge of your glass in the sugar and set aside. Combine vodka, cassis, St. Germain, and lemon juice in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously until thoroughly chilled, and strain into prepared glass. I added a cheap little spider ring for fun. Dress it up if you like, and enjoy!
