It’s a Halloween Happy Hour!

This blackberry bourbon cocktail was developed for maximum taste and spooky color without using any food coloring or hard-to-find coloring ingredients.

It’s perfect for your Halloween festivities – whether you’re walking trick-or-treaters around the neighborhood, passing out candy to costumed kiddos, or watching your favorite scary movie. 

Makes 1 cocktail

2 oz bourbon
1 oz honey syrup
0.5 oz ginger liqueur
2 dashes orange bitters 
4-5 blackberries 
0.5 oz fresh orange juice*

Muddle blackberries and orange juice in a cocktail shaker until all of the blackberries are crushed.

Add 3-4 ice cubes to the shaker.**

Add honey syrup, bourbon, ginger liqueur, and orange bitters

Shake well. 

Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a glass. (Be patient here! With all those fresh blackberries in your shaker, this step will take longer than usual.)

Enjoy! 

Tips on Blackberry Bourbon Cocktails

  • Fresh squeezed orange juice is important in this recipe! Buy the fruit, not the bottle of juice (no matter how fresh or fancy it is!).
  • You need just enough ice to chill your drink. Don’t load the shaker with ice or it’ll take even longer to strain your cocktail. There’s a lot of blackberry pulp in there!

Snack Pairing
