It doesn’t matter if you’re superstitious or a little-stitious, Friday the 13th makes everyone feel a little… off. There’s a chill in the air and a chill down your spine. You’re suspicious of black cats and careful with mirrors. Luckily, you only have 24 hours to dodge bad luck. So keep our fingers crossed and a salt shaker nearby until you make it back to your house where you can hole up with your best friend and one of these cocktails.
Combine over ice in a highball glass. Stir and serve.
This cocktail is a throwback to the cherry cola of your younger years. Add cherries to your glass and let them soak up the cocktail flavors as you sip away. Bonus points if you read Pet Sematary while you sip.
THE BROKEN MIRROR
Add Absinthe to a snifter. Fill with sparkling wine.
Counter any bad luck you’ve accrued throughout the years with one sip of this interesting, flavorful cocktail. Lightly green and bubbly, this will dispel any previous notions you had about Absinthe.
THE SALTED SHOULDER
Salt half the rim of a glass, add ice and set aside. Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain into the prepared glass.
