Sparkling Vampire Bite Cocktail


This cocktail spiked with tequila is perfect for celebrating Halloween, but so wickedly tasty you’ll make it all year long! Try it for a new twist on Cinco de Mayo!

What You Need

  • 1 cup frozen cherries
  • 1 1/2 cups Trop50® Black Berry Cherry
  • 1/2 jalapeño pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 12 oz tequila
  • 2 cans (12 oz each) Aquafina® Sparkling Black Cherry Dragonfruit
  • Garnish: 8 jalapeño pepper slices


  1. In small saucepan set over high heat, combine frozen cherries, juice and jalapeno; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool completely.
  2. Pour cherry mixture and lime juice into blender. Purée until smooth; strain. Refrigerate or freeze until thoroughly chilled.
  3. Divide cherry mixture evenly among 8 (5 oz) champagne coupe glasses. Top each with 1.5 oz tequila and sparkling water. Garnish with jalapeño slices.
  4. For a very smooth cocktail, strain cherry and jalapeño mixture after puréeing.

Serve cocktail over ice in highball glasses.
