The Black Widow Cocktail Recipe

The Black Widow cocktail is a straightforward cranberry with a dark and mysterious addition that gives an eerie and spine chilling visual effect that will have your party guests reaching for more, more, more of these refreshing drinks.

The Black Widow is of course a reference to the spider of the same name. The female venomous spider with large venom glands full of the neurotoxin latrotoxin which causes pain, muscle cramps, vomiting and sweating. Contrary to popular belief its very rarely fatal.

The name was then also given to a powerful superhero in the marvel universe. The alter ego of Natasha Romanova. She was originally a nemesis of Iron man, a Russian spy who came to infiltrate Iron Man’s fortress. She then defected to work for the United States instead and became an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate.

This drink would be great or a spooky Halloween party or a Super Hero themed party and with its refreshing and delicious ingredients your guests will love the drinks look and taste. Prepare the drink in front of guests to allow them to see the eerie effect the black vodka has in the cranberry juice.
