Black Widow - Tequila Cocktail

About The Black Widow Cocktail

Don’t fear: This crimson cocktail gets its bite from bold blanco tequila, not venom. Agave nectar and muddled blackberries soften that bite with a hint of sweetness, and give the Black Widow its signature spooky hue. Don’t forget the fresh basil and blackberry garnish for the full effect. Its bite brings pleasure, not pain.
