This is one Black Cat that you won't mind crossing your path. At first glance you may think that the flavor combination is a little strange.. Think of it as a spiked cherry cola with a cranberry twist.

If you don't have cherry brandy, a cherry liqueur like maraschino will work just fine.

This is an easy tall drink for Halloween parties.

Total Time: 3 minutes

This Black Cat is Lucky, Member stanmsak

I gave the Black Cat a try tonight and ultimately did enjoy it. This is one of those cocktails that upon reading the ingredient list I think to myself ""yeah, right"". But this did, indeed work out well. The cranberry, kirschwasser and cola combine to give a pleasing, tart, berry flavor that's not too sweet. For an interesting variant, try using Luxardo maraschino in place of the kirschwasser!
