Welcome to Candace cocktail hour!
In my former life I was a bartender for something like eight years. I made tons and tons of fancy drinks but never tried most. So, I decided every Saturday night to try a new drink. (I started doing these in November, so I will post one a day until we're all caught up here!)
This week's drink—The Black Widow.
Inspired by: My love of all things spooky. “She mates and she kills.” Guest tasters: The old man and the bartender.
What you need:
Rosemary (few springs)
What you do:
Muddle together the blackberries, lemon juice, and honey.
Add 2oz tequila and 2 dashes of orange bitters.
Strain and pour mixture over ice.
Add mineral water to fill.
Add a sprig of rosemary for decoration.
Ratings: The old man: 3 out of 5 stir sticks, (not a fan of mineral water) The bartender: 3 out of 5 stir sticks (could be sweeter, but refreshing)
