Cocktail Inspirations for Halloween

Cocktail Inspirations for Halloween

Black Magic Cocktail


1.5 oz Black Vodka
1.5 oz Cherry Juice (you want that deep red color not fake red)
1 oz Orange Juice
0.5 oz Maraschino Cherry Syrup (Syrup in cherry jar)
Pinch Wilton Pearl Dust in White (Found in cake decorating aisle of craft store.)


In the bottom of a shaker add your black vodka** (recipe below), cherry juice, orange juice, maraschino cherry syrup (liquid in the maraschino cherry jar), and pinch of pearl dust. Add in your bar spoon, the ice to the liquid line, stir your cocktail until chilled, about 10 seconds. Strain into a chilled martini glass and serve. Garnish with orange peel or maraschino cherries. We recommend make this ahead of time and test out how to set up lighting on your drink table to get the most glitter effect. In a dark room the glitter is harder to see.

How to make Black Vodka

Into a separate jar add 1 cup of vodka (plain or flavored) and 4 drops of Wilton Black Icing Color. Stir or shake until fully combined. Keep in an airtight jar in the fridge until use. Use the same portions as the recipe
