Bloody-Fizzy Rita

I’m so excited that Halloween is on a Friday this year. Our children will be able to stay up late and enjoy trick-or-treating and the adults can sip on this sparkling cocktail.

This brightly colored brew is made with persimmon juice, blood orange soda, and combined with tequila to create a potent potion. Whether you make them on Halloween night or over the weekend, you will love this festive drink – it’s frightfully refreshing.
