Featured Halloween Drink: Black Martini

You probably celebrated Halloween over the weekend, instead of leaving the tricking for today, but there's no reason you can't commemorate the day with a drink!

This Black Martini is really easy to make. You can find this recipe and others on Cocktails.

This Black Martini replaces vermouth with either blackberry brandy or black raspberry liqueur (Chambord is a good choice). The drink will be dark, but not black-black, so another option is to make a Vodka Martini with Blavod, a black-colored vodka.
