Halloween Cocktail, Black Widow Martini


When Halloween rolls around, I’m in the mood for a sultry drink that is both devilish and angelic.  I created this recipe using two of my favorite new liqueurs, a chocolate and Mexican chili infused tequila called Patron XO Cafe Incendio, and an orange infused tequila called Patron Citronge.  With a splash of (good) coffee and cream, it’s sweet, spicy and packed with depth and flavor.  The best part is, like all my cocktail recipes, it’s easy! Four ingredients and a simple shake, that’s my kind of drink! If you want to elevate any drink, rim the glass.  I mixed raw brown sugar, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper.  Just a little pinch goes a long way, but, wow, does it make a difference.  This drink is a sophisticated addition to an adult Halloween party, give it a try and let me know what you think.


Halloween Cocktail, Black Widow Martini


  • 1.5 oz Patron XO Cafe Incendio Liqueur
  • .5 oz Patron Cintronge Liqueur
  • 2 oz fresh brewed and chilled coffee
  • splash of cream
  • ice
  • shaker


  1. In a large shaker add all the ingredients.  (A note about coffee.  I used a French Press to make my coffee, it makes a huge difference in the coffee flavor.  I also added a fat pinch of cinnamon while brewing.)  
  2. Fill the shaker with ice, give it a vigorous shake and strain into a cinnamon, cayenne, sugar rimmed martini glass.  
  3. Enjoy!
