Nothing starts a Halloween dinner party off better than a Halloween cocktail. This Elegant Gravedigger cocktail is based on the Purple Rain cocktail we had on our ribs challenge but I thought that it was too sweet and syrupy. You can make this as tart as you want with the limoncello and limiting the blackcurrant syrup to a mere dash for colour. The lime juice really brings this all together.
