This Adams Family-themed cocktail, called the Gomez & Morticia, is the perfect cocktail to celebrate your spooky and undying love during Halloween! It's a spin on a Kir Royal and combines sparkling rose wine, black cassis, and a little rose syrup. It's seductive, beautifully crimson, and full of bubbles!
Why this recipe works:
This one is based on the iconic love between Gomez and Morticia in The Adams Family. Gomez and Morticia are complete couple goals and are entirely devoted to each other. The sweet and sour flavors of black cassis, the hint of roses, and sparkling wine are the perfect flavors to honor their passionate relationship!
Black Cassis Liqueur: black cassis is a black currant liqueur made from the black currant berry. The berry tastes like a combination of grape and cherry, making the liqueur sweet and a little tart. I used this one from Mathilde.
Rose Syrup: Morticia loves cutting off roses' tops to make her budless arrangements. Including a bit of rose in this cocktail is an ode to Morticia's love for roses, and it balances well with the black currant.
Sparkling Rosè: Similar to a Kir Royal, which is a black current champagne cocktail, this is topped with sparkling wine! The wine tones down the potent black cassis and makes a wonderful festive cocktail!

This recipe is completely delicious, but a few things could be switched out based on taste and availability.
- Black Cassis can easily be switched out for any black currant liqueur or raspberry liqueur.
- If you aren't a fan of rose flavors, you can skip this and still have a delicious cocktail.
- You can also use champagne or sparkling white wine instead of Rosè
