Cocktail of the Month:
Black Widow Smash
Both delightful & chilling at the same time, the Black Widow Smash is perfect for this month’s featured cocktail! Fresh blackberries are muddled with rosemary, lemon, a dash of orange bitters, and tequila, giving you both refreshing & enchanting vibes. To give it the ultimate chill factor, try torching a sprig of rosemary as your garnish right before serving, giving that “eerie” smoky final touch. It makes for the perfect warming drink for all the chilly fall nights ahead!
How to Make:
Makes 1 Cocktail
8 fresh blackberries, plus more for topping
1-2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, plus a sprig for serving
Juice from ½ of a lemon
1-2 tablespoons of honey (or simple syrup)
1 ½ - 2 oz. tequila or mezcal
A couple of dashes of orange bitters
Sparkling water for topping
Fresh rosemary (torch sprig for smoky effect)
In a cocktail shaker or glass jar, add blackberries, rosemary, lemon juice, and honey. Muddle all of the ingredients together, squishing everything to release the juices. Add the tequila and orange bitters.
Add ice to your glass and strain the drink over the ice. Top the glass with a little more ice, pour the sparkling water over, and gently stir to combine. Garnish with fresh rosemary. Torch for a smoky effect. Enjoy!
