  1. Mr. Hyde Potion via HGTV: Lavender syrup, blackberry liqueur, tarragon simple syrup, vodka & lemon juice blend together for a herbaceous sip with a sweet finish and thrilling purple hue. 
  2. The Black Heart via Minted: Guaranteed to warm even the blackest heart, this mix of black vodka, fig vodka and Creme de Cassis is darkly decadent. Don't forget the halved fresh fig placed stem-side down on the martini glass for the perfect heart finishing creepy (I mean, doesn't the inside of a fig look like a human heart cavity of what?!) yet elegant touch!
  3. La Llorona Cocktail via Taste Spotting: Pisco Brandy, lime & lemon juice, and a dash of Angostura bitters makes this drink lovely anytime of year, but the addition of dry ice* gives it the perfect spooky feel. *Please drink responsibly and know that dry ice should never be consumed in it's solid form.
  4. Black Widow via Ever Mine: Devilishly refreshing this mix of blackberry juice, simple syrup and vodka creates a deep red to purple hue that's hauntingly elegant in any style glass.
