A suitably spooky cocktail perfect for a Halloween celebration. Black vodka and blackberries combine in this gothic punch.


  1. Place the vodka, lemon juice, vanilla syrup, blackberry liqueur and apple juice into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake well. Pour into a cocktail glass.

  2. To garnish, cut a small hole into the lychee. Fill with strawberry jam, then stick the blueberry into the jam to create an 'eyeball'. Float the 'eyeball' in the cocktail and serve.


  • 25ml/1fl oz black vodka
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 25ml/1fl oz blackberry liqueur
  • 25ml/1fl oz fresh apple juice

To garnish

  • 1 lychee, peeled
  • ½ tsp strawberry jam
