Hocus Pocus Fizz Drinks

Here's another Halloween-themed drink for you! This time, this is McCormick's recipe. I added a little bit more yellow and red food color to make it a bit more red. I loved how it came out! A nice little bubbly drink for the adults for Halloween! And check out my red velvet cake batter milkshakes if you missed those from last week.

To make black sugar for the glasses, put 2 tablespoons sugar in small resealable plastic bag. Add 10 drops McCormick® Black Food Color and close up the bag and squish around with your hands until the black is evenly distributed.

To make it for the kids, don't use rum and increase pineapple juice to 1 1/2 cups and use a bottle sparkling white grape juice instead of the sparkling white wine.
