A delicious halloween beverage for adults! Serve with a straw and plastic fangs over straw! I make this every year in a beverage server or punch bowl for my annual Halloween bash, and it always goes over good. Delicious and tastes somewhat like a sangria!

O.M.G.!! This is one of the best drinks I've had in a long time. I thought it would be really sweet but it's not. Flavor is that of the cabernet but the schnapps and juice cut the heaviness and make it pop. Reminds me of a Kir (white wine and crème de cassis) but made with ingredients that compliment red wines and a splash is a matter of interpretation so a little or a lot is your preference. Perfect in a tall glass over ice. Careful because it goes down real easy. Buy a cabernet you like. You can get great cabernets for under 10 (IMO). (recipe made for RECIPE GROUP ). I know I'll make this often as it is already a favorite. Thanks MARIGOLDDESIGNS for this "Spootacular" drink recipe!! Read More

This is my recipe and I serve it every year at my annual Halloween party. You can see in the creepy clown picture above that I put it into a carafe with a pour spout. For a fun Halloween effect add glow in the dark fangs plastic eyeballs or little skulls to the punch. This year I called it "tears of a clown" for a CarnEvil theme! Delicious Delicious Delicious!!!

Recipe Group Selection: 25 October 2014 I bought the ingredients to make this for our Halloween dinner with my parents brother and SIL. I'm not a wine drinker but I tried it. Let's just say I loved the cranberry and raspberry schnapps mixture....the wine part not so much. My dear SIL (the wine lover) on the other hand LOVED it and this review is based on her tasting. She thought the 3 ingredients went well together. Thought a splash of the schnapps and juice was the perfect amount for a wine changer. When she left I sent the rest of the wine bottle home with her....I will be making my own concoction with the remainder of the cranberry juice and raspberry schnapps. Thanks MARIGOLDDESIGNS for sharing your recipe. Read More
