Serve this Halloween Cocktail Black Widow Martini, for your grown up party only! Sip slowly or it might sneak up and bite you!
This Black Widow Martini is for all you friends out there who like something sweet. I say on here time and time again, that I prefer less sweet cocktails…heck, I even prefer appetizers over desserts! But this Halloween cocktail has a lot of flavor and I like sipping on one before switching to something like this Spinning Top Mezcal cocktail or Sweet Smokey Prosecco cocktail.
This drink certainly falls in the “martini” category as it’s mostly spirits with a hint of a “mixer.” Sip it slowly or you could find yourself getting bitten by this Black Widow! The flavors blend so well together though, I think you’ll really enjoy it.
If you can find a dry ice resource near you, drop a few pieces in the glass when ready to serve for a fabulous Halloween effect. Just make sure you don’t handle it with your bare hands (use tongs or a large spoon) and let it melt fully before drinking.
