SIP OF THE WEEK: The Berry Scary Martini

Halloween isn’t just for the kids and the Berry Scary Martini will make you want a little less trick and a lot more treat.

This spooky cocktail combines black vodka and cherry juice with fresh raspberries and blueberries. The black vodka may scare you off but don’t worry, it goes down just as smooth as regular vodka and compliments the sweet yet tart taste of the cherry juice.

The stark, eerie color the Berry Scary Martini is sure to be a hit at any Halloween Party.  With only three ingredients it’s easy to recreate this simple cocktail at home.

For a real chill, place the martini glass in the freezer 15 minutes before you start mixing. Next combine one cup of ice, one ounce of black vodka and two ounces of cherry juice in a cocktail shaker, shake hard then pour into the chilled glass.

It’s up to you if you want to drop in a few raspberries and blueberries or garnish it by threading them through a cocktail skewer, like you would with an olive in a regular martini. The berries add a sweet touch to this tart treat. To add a sour kick, simply rim the glass with sour flavored sugar rocks.

Whether you’re scaring it up at a party or passing out candy to little monsters, the Berry Scary Martini is the perfect treat for Halloween, so pass on the candy corn and pour yourself a killer drink.
