One of my favorite ways to incorporate some holiday fun is in a cocktail! It’s a perfect and easy way to infuse a little spook this Halloween! But Halloween doesn’t always have to be full of ghosts or goblins. I created this midnight in the garden Halloween cocktail, that’s perfectly posh and sophisticated for the adults. It comes complete with snakes and spiders, because those creepy crawly garden dwellers should have a little fun too! 😉
This recipe uses only 4 ingredients, so it’s the perfect cocktail recipe to grab and bring with you when heading to a party or Halloween event. It’s also simple to make, so mixing up a batch for your party guests is simple! Not attending any parties this year? It’s also delish to sip and enjoy while sitting on the couch, watching scary movies! 😉
Dark and moody purple tones and fresh blackberries and basil add an earthy flavor to this drink. Plus, the fact that it’s so pretty, doesn’t hurt either! 😉
I really like using Sprite® in a cocktail because it has a crisp, clean taste and is light and refreshing. Plus, it has 100% natural flavors! It adds a fizzy little burst to this midnight in the garden Halloween cocktail, that I love, and it pairs perfectly with fun flavors of BACARDÍ® rum! Did you know that BACARDÍ® rum is also the most preferred rum? Plus, who can resist that BACARDÍ® bat for Halloween?! It’s the perfect bottle to bring to your Halloween events this year and is so versatile too.

In a small glass, muddle the blackberries and basil together.
Add the BACARDÍ® Superior Rum and the Sprite. Mix well.
