Vampire fans: Here’s a Halloween cocktail for you, courtesy of Riazul Tequila. It combines Tequila with crème de cassis, raspberry liqueur that is bright red in color.

First produced by French monks in the 16th century as a cure for snake bites, jaundice and “wretchedness,” crème de cassis is perfect for celebrations with a red theme (Halloween, Independence Day, Christmas).

While those monks would not win any prizes for medicine, the delicious liqueur can certainly help make one less wretched and brighten up drinks. Perhaps the most famous cocktail with crème de cassis is the Kir and its sparkling sibling, Kir Royale.
