  • 12 Fresh blackberries
  • 4 oz Vodka See Notes
  • 2 ozs Crème de Mûre Blackberry Liqueur Substitute Crème de Cassis if desired
  • 1.5 tablespoons agave nectar taste for sweetness which will be dependent on your blackberries
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Prosecco or any sparkling wine, chilled (I used an inexpensive bottle of Rosè sparkling Wine from Costco)

For Garnish

  • Blackberries and Raspberries


  • Muddle the blackberries in the bottom of a cocktail shaker.
  • Fill the shaker with ice and add vodka, Creme de Muir, agave nectar and lime juice.
  • Add the top to the shaker, and shake vigorously for 20-30 seconds until ice cold.
  • Add ice to a low-ball glass, pour mixture over ice and top with Prosecco.
  • Garnish with blackberries and raspberries.


I used Blavod Vodka which is considered 'black vodka' but is really more a deep burgundy. Yes it makes the drink darker and no, I don't think it's necessary. It's a novelty for Halloween but also a bit pricey for a mediocre vodka used more for effect.
