It’s Friday the 13th, a date many associate with bad luck. But here at Spec’s we believe in making your own luck, so why not celebrate? After all, a Friday is still a Friday.

So stop by your nearest Spec’s to stock up on the ingredients you’ll need to make these superstitious sippers. But just to be safe — try not to walk under any ladders on your way.

Black Cat
1 oz Blavod Black Vodka
1 oz Blue Curacao
3 oz lemon lime soda
1 oz cranberry juice
½ oz freshly squeezed lime juice
Lime twist for garnish

Fill a shaker halfway with ice. Add curacao, vodka and lime juice and shake. Add soda and stir. Pour cranberry juice into a tall glass. Over the back of a spoon, gently strain the mixed ingredients over the cranberry juice, being careful not to completely mix the two for presentation. Serve with a cocktail stirrer and a lime twist for garnish.
