  • Cocktail shaker


For the sugared rim

  • 3 tablespoons black sparkling sugar
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup

For the drink

  • 3 ounces raspberry vodka
  • 2 ounces black raspberry liquor such as Chambord
  • 3 ounces cranberry juice
  • 2 ounces ginger ale


  • black plastic spider
  • mint leaf


  • Prepare the glasses. Pour the corn syrup and black sugar onto separate small plates. Lightly dip the glasses in the corn syrup, then the sugar. Don't let too much syrup get on the rim, or it will drip down. Fill the glasses halfway with ice.
  • Mix the cocktail ingredients. Add the vodka, black raspberry, cranberry juice, and Sprite in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake well. Pour into the glass.
  • Garnish. Add a plastic spider and mint for garnish, if you'd like.
