When my gal Heather invited me to put on my witch hat and channel my inner Halloween spirit for the #HalloweenProject, I couldn’t wait to grab my cocktail shaker and shake a little “spirit” into the festivities.
Whenever I throw a get-together, I always have a signature cocktail and La Diabla will be my signature cocktail this year. I was inspired by this recipe from Real Simple and put my stiletto spin on it. La Diabla is sweet and sassy with the flavors of raspberry and pomegranate woven throughout with a bite from the tequila and the ginger. This cocktail goes down smooth but it does pack quite the stiletto kick so you need to pace yourself when sipping this libation.
This drink couldn’t be easier to shake up – a few ingredients, a bit of a pour and a garnish with some ginger beer sparkle and some lime and raspberry accents. This sweet and sassy cocktail will have you dancing the night away. Whip up a batch of these La Diabla cocktails and watch your guests howl in appreciation!
