“You’re in for a treat with this creepy concoction of sour cranberry juice and sweet blackberry schnapps created by Beetle House mixologist Gia Farrell.”

Serving Vessel: Highball Glass.

Ingredients

  • 2 blackberries
  • 1 slice lime
  • 1⁄2 ounce (15 ml) simple syrup (see Tip)
  • 1-1⁄2 ounces (45 ml) silver tequila
  • 1 dash angostura bitters
  • 1⁄2 ounce (15 ml) lime juice
  • 1⁄2 ounce (15 ml) blackberry schnapps
  • 2 ounces (60 ml) cranberry juice
  • Garnish lime wheel
  • Garnish blackberry

Preparation

  • 1 In a pint glass, muddle the blackberries, lime slice, and simple syrup.
  • 2 Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Then add the tequila, angostura bitters, lime juice, blackberry schnapps, cranberry juice, and the muddled ingredients.
  • 3 Shake the ingredients for about 5 seconds.
  • 4 Dump the drink straight into the highball glass and garnish with the lime wheel and blackberry.
  • 5 GO VIRGIN! This drink can be made non-alcoholic by substituting cranberry juice for the silver tequila and schnapps.
  • 6 TIP: You can make your own simple syrup by combining 1-1⁄2 cups of water with 1 cup of sugar and bringing them to a boil or until they form a syrupy consistency.
