The “Phantom Love Song” Sake Cocktail

This eerily romantic Phantom Love Song sake cocktail is essentially a French Gimlet that’s smoother, more delicate and perfect for an elegant Halloween party!

The “Phantom Love Song” Sake Cocktail

It’s a perfect signature cocktail for a party with guests who prefer sake to gin, and appreciate a little ghostly romance.  I know I’m guilty of celebrating seasons and holidays way too early.

Halloween starts in September for me, personally. It’s one of my favorite holidays and I just get so excited! But in this case, my ghostberry garnish is perfectly in season for October, even though it’s also called “snowberry.”

It’s not exactly edible – its not poisonous, but it doesn’t taste very nice (so you might want to warn your guests not to graze on the garnish), but it’s just so elegant that I had to add it to my Phantom Love Song cocktail.

You’ll find ghost berries at your local florists and NYC bodegas this time of year for only a little while, so grab them before they floooOOOoooat awaaaAAAaaaay with the rest of the ghosts.

It’s similar to a French Gimlet, made with sake instead of Gin. This cocktail is lighter, smoother and more delicate than a traditional French gimlet. Give it a try at your next cocktail party!
