Our Halloween cocktail is a spooky twist on a dark and stormy, with rum, ginger beer, a squeeze of fresh lime and cherry juice and grenadine for that bright red color. These are perfect for your next costume party, and they're easy to make!


Units Scale
  • 4 oz dark rum
  • 4 oz unsweetened tart cherry juice
  • 1 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 1/4 oz grenadine
  • 6 oz ginger beer


  1. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add rum, cherry juice, lime juice, and grenadine to the shaker and shake well.
  2. Pour into a glass filled with ice and top with ginger beer. Garnish with a lime wedge.
  3. (Optional): Make eyeball ice cubes for your cocktail, using lychee and blueberries. You can find canned lychee in the Asian foods section of your grocery store. Place a blueberry in the opening of each lychee fruit, place in an ice cube tray, fill with water and freeze.
