Our shimmery bat cocktail is a fun addition to any Halloween plans. It’s well-balanced with a understated sweetness and cherry-citrus flavor.

I love the touch of glamour and whimsy from the sparkly glitter which draws guests in to take a closer look – and then they notice a pair of eyeballs staring up at them from their drink! (And the eyeballs taste great, too!)

Have you ever noticed that the Bacardi Rum mark is a bat? (Right there in that red circle at the top of the label. See, I told you!)

The Bacardi bat served as my inspiration for this delicious and easy cocktail – I love the symbolism, especially with Halloween and the bat’s notorious transformations.

Here’s hoping this Shimmery Bat Cocktail transforms your night into an extra spirited evening!

Tip: I often order my liquor from Drizly because they have a quick delivery time (sometimes within 40 minutes) and no expensive mark-ups. Purchasing from them supports local retailers, too. You can order the Rum and Blue Curaçao needed for this recipe from them.
