Halloween Cocktails: The Raven

063 Happy Halloween folks and in celebration and in the continuation of my Halloween cocktails mini-series, here is the Raven cocktail.  This delicious blackberry cocktail is a twist on your basic mojito, but evil enough to ladle out of a cauldron at your Halloween fete this weekend.  See after the jump for ingredients and recipe.

  • fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tablespoon turbinado sugar
  • 6 blackberries
  • 1 1/2 ounces white rum
  • 1/2 cup sparkling cranberry juice

  1. In a cocktail shaker, using a muddling stick, muddle the mint and sugar.  Add the blackberries and muddle to get the juice out, but not so much that they are completely mushed. 
  2. Add in ice and white rum.  Shake.
  3. Pour into glass.  Add in the sparkling cranberry juice. 
  4. Garnish with mint sprig and enjoy!

 PS.  Don't forget that today is your last day to shop my Home Mint collection here. Remember you get a special surprise with purchase!
