recipe: black veil screwdriver

5 oz orange or tangerine juice
2 oz vodka
several drops black liquid food coloring

Directions:
1. Add the food coloring to the vodka to make it black.

2. To help the two liquids stay separate, pour chilled juice into preferred chilled glass then hold a bar spoon over the pitcher—so the spoon is in a ‘mound’ position—and slowly pour the black vodka over the back of the spoon.

3. Once ready to drink, make sure you give it a good stir or you will get a mouthful of vodka!

Adam’s hints:
—also try making black ice cubes with water and black food coloring. Shake and pour vodka and juice, or other mixers, over the ice for a spooky drink.
—you can find black liquid food coloring online or at any cake decorating shop.

Adam’s hints:
—This sangria shows up regularly at our house. Its just so easy and to say I love rosé is an understatement.
—Mix it up with any fresh berries you have. It’s very forgiving and is even great with chunks of watermelon.
—Try freezing them so they keep the Sangria colder longer!
