A Halloween cocktail that's just boozy enough, just fruity enough, just spicy enough, just sour enough and just sliced enough. It's like the perfect spell. I can't wait to hand out tricks and treats
while sipping on one of these and watching one of our favourite Halloween movies!
I use Farming Karma's Cherry Soda to top up a mixture of bourbon, lemon juice and vanilla brown sugar syrup. It's served over ice in a rocks glass with a sliced sugar rim. It's blissful! Be choosy in which Soda you use, this Soda is perfect because it has no additional sugar or sweeteners (and I love supporting local!). If you can't find it, I recommend unsweetened cherry juice and a splash of sparkling water, because that's all that's in the Farming Karma can.
The syrup and rim recipes makes enough for drinks with friends, the cocktail recipe is per individual drink. As always, be sure to drink responsibly!
