Equipment You’ll Need
Pretty much the only equipment you’ll need is a pitcher and something to measure with. If you have a shot jigger then great! However, regular measuring cups will work as well. You can’t forget to use a fun and spooky cup. The ones I used are from Walmart and cost less than $3 each!
Ingredients You’ll Need
Can of Dark Cherries:
I used a 15oz can of dark cherries. You don’t want to drain the cherries. Use all that good juice. This can also act as a simple syrup.
Dark Cherry Cranberry Juice:
The dark cherry cranberry juice will be on the juice aisle like everything else. It’s just like a Cran-grape juice. I think Ocean Spray makes it.
You’ll want to use a high-quality light tequila. I am partial to Patron, but any will work!
I garnished with rosemary. Totally optional and makes the drink look pretty.
Just another dark component to the drink! Totally optional, but a delicious garnish.
You’ll need ice for each individual drink and the pitcher.
