This Vampire’s Kiss Mocktail recipe is delightfully spooky but oh so delicious and perfect for this Halloween season. I am starting what I hope will become a regular thing here, Mocktail Mondays! I love enjoying a refreshing and delicious beverage at the end of the day but I often do not want the alcohol component so mocktails are a great option! Of course, you could always add a splash of your favorite liquor to make a tasty cocktail!

Vampire’s Kiss Recipe
Of course this mocktail recipe got its name from its vibrant red color. That redness comes from cherry juice and muddled cherries. YUM!
- 6-8 dark cherries, pitted
- .5 oz maple syrup
- 1-2oz tart cherry juice
- 1/2 lime, juiced
- Black Cherry Waterloo Sparkling Water
- Sugar for rim (optional)
If desired, rim your glass with sugar. Pit and muddle cherries in the bottom of your rimmed glass. Add maple syrup, lime juice, cherry juice and ice. Top of with sparkling water & stir.
Optional: Want to make this into a cocktail? Add a shot of vodka or bourbon into the mix and combine.
