RAVEN'S WING Pomegranate Orange Halloween Cocktail


A couple of Halloweens ago I wrote a little horror poem, "THE HALLOWEEN VISITATION, A Cocktale of Horror and Vodka", about ravens knock, knock, knocking at my door begging for my Crystal Head Vodka. For some reason I didn't create a cocktail to accompany that Edgar Allan Poe parody. Time to correct that right now.


I wanted a dark cocktail with a purple cast to it, like raven feathers, and something fruity but tart. Something ravens, and people, might like their Crystal Head Vodka with. Maybe if I named a cocktail after them those darned birds would leave my nightmares alone.
