If you love spooky and fun, we have a cocktail for you! This Black Magic (Gris-Gris) Halloween Cocktail is a fun, festive drink for adults to sip on for Halloween.
Whether you’re staying home celebrating Halloween in front of the boob-tube with your family or celebrating October 31st with a few close friends, this Halloween Cocktail will sure to put a spell on you!!
This deliciously creepy Halloween Cocktail contains Sweet Retreat vanilla liqueur, dark purple grape juice, and huge vibrant green and red grapes.
The cocktail reminds me of a potion because the grapes remind me of eyes that you may see in pot cooking over a fire in a Halloween movie.
Especially, when someone is casting a gris-gris or hex.
Just to let you know, this tasty Black Magic Cocktail recipe is for only one cocktail. Of course, if you wanted, it could easily be doubled or tripled.
We usually make a few of these cocktails because we enjoy sharing with friends.
Unfortunately, this year Halloween might look a little different!
