This year for Halloween, I knew I wanted to go all out: a crazy costume, amazing decorations, and even Halloween cocktails!

If you’re familiar with country superstar Toby Keith, you know the man knows a good drink when he sees one. So when he shared a recipe for a Black Widow cocktail, I knew I had to try it.


Unsurprisingly, it was delicious.

Keith shared this awesome cocktail recipe on his Twitter, and I’ve gotta say, I cannot wait to try it. Blackberries, basil, lime, honey, and mezcal? Yes please!

First, muddle some blackberries with 3 basil leaves, add 2 oz. Wild Shot Silver (or any other mezcal of your choice), 1 oz fresh lime juice, and 1 tbsp. of honey.

Top with club soda, blackberries, and an orange twist, and the cocktail is done. For some extra spook, serve it in a creepy glass!

You can obviously sip on this delicious drink any time of year, but what better time than Halloween? It looks spooky, and will definitely get you in the mood for Halloween festivities.

Give this drink a “shot” yourself and you’ll fall in love with it in no time. What’s your favorite Halloween drink?
