Bon Appétea: Halloween Recipe

Get the Halloween party started early this October with our Spooky Berry Daiquiri and surprise your guests with this glass of fizzy fun that’s gotten a creepy lil upgrade – yummy eyeballs anyone?

Featuring one of teapasar’s bestsellers, The 1972 Clipper Tea Co.’s Blissful Berries, this cocktail packs a punch of tangy sweetness from the tea, complementing beautifully with the intoxicating rum and zesty taste of the lemon sparkling water. To incorporate a generous dash of good ol’ Halloween spirit in this cocktail, squash some strawberries and make it extra “bloody” before adding those cute lychee-berry eyeballs as the final touch.

For all the mummies and dad-culas, feel free to substitute rum with soda and let the little monsters have their go at making this berry delicious drink; perhaps their destructive talents may just increase the (mess) scare factor of the finished products!
