With Halloween right around the corner how many of you have been trying to craft the perfect cocktail?  With all the candy options out there don’t you think it’d be a GREAT way to add crafty fun to your cocktails?

Sisters Flannery and Katherine Good  definitely thought so from the fun blogging site, “Fashionably Bombed.” And they’ve recently released their first Candy Cocktail book.

Rim a martini glass with lemon juice and the sprinkles and set aside. Shake the rest of the ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker and then strain the mixture into the glass.

Black Licorice Widow (page 128)



2 ounces black vodka

1 ounce Jagermeister

1 ounce blueberry pomegranate juice
