Vampire’s Kiss Halloween Cocktail
This tart, fizzy Vampire’s Kiss Halloween cocktail featuring frozen raspberries, sparkling rose, and blood red pomegranate juice is the perfect spooky sip for your holiday soirees.
Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays – I just love any excuse to don a costume.
But in recent years, my busy schedule and the fact that I’ve become a boring adult has led me to put Halloween festivities on the back burner.
Not this year though. Becoming a mom has rekindled my love of this holiday and encouraged me to make time for all the festive fun.
This year will be both my son Caleb and nephew Hudson’s first Halloween and my sister and I have planned a pretty cute group costume with our little men. Be sure to follow me on Instagram to check out our outfits.
In addition to dressing up, I’ll be whipping up several of my favorite healthy Halloween snacks for my fam. Caleb, unfortunately, is still a few weeks away from being able to enjoy solid food but I’m sure there will be plenty of other things for him to put in his mouth (he’s chewing on everything these days!).
I’ve also created an extremely delicious and devilish drink for the adults – my Vampire’s Kiss Halloween Cocktail.
This blood-red concoction is made with five simple ingredients: frozen raspberries, sparkling rose, pomegranate juice, lemon, and a splash of agave.
The frozen raspberries add an eye-catching element to this spooky drink and a nice tart bite – or Vampire’s “kiss” I should say.
It takes about two minutes to prepare – great for busy parents whose time is better spent making sure the little ones aren’t eating buttons of their costumes.
I like this punch because it has about half the alcohol of a normal glass of wine and tons of flavor, without a lot of added sugar. While it’s fun to celebrate holidays with a festive cocktail, I don’t want anything that’s going to get me too foggy-headed to carry around my little pumpkin.
You can certainly make this Halloween drink without alcohol too! Just sub the rose for sparkling water, tonic, or even kombucha (just don’t give it to kids if you use the booch because it’s unpasteurized).
Finally, I like this drink because it’s a nutritional powerhouse! Raspberries pack a mighty dose of vitamin C – important for immune functioning, especially in cold and flu season.
