Updated: Oct 15, 2022
It's Friday y'all so I am here with a new Halloween Inspired cocktail recipe for you to try!
You guys! This one is DEFINITELY one of my faves! It has everything a perfect cocktail should, a little sour, a little sweet, and a tiny kick of spice. ::chef's kiss:: Bellissimo! I found the original recipe on Pinterest, so I left a link to that at the bottom of the page. If you try it don't forget to tag me in it! Have fun and enjoy responsibly! xo
Ingredients Ginger Simple Syrup 1 cup water
1 cup sugar
2 'knots' of fresh ginger, peeled and cut into pieces
Cocktail 1-2 ounces of white rum (per cocktail)
Fresh Mint Leaves
2 limes cut into wedges
brown sugar (to rim the glass)
Blood Orange Soda (the recipe calls for Pellegrino, I accidentally grabbed 'blood orange/raspberry ones instead of plain Blood Orange flavor and it still turned out great!)
a splash of pure cranberry juice
Simple Syrup Combine water, sugar, and ginger in sauce pan. Simmer until sugar is dissolved. Let cool.
Cocktail 1. Combine 2-3 lime wedges (depending on how sour you want your drink), some fresh mint leaves about 2-3 tbs, and 2 tbs of the simple syrup in a glass.
