Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice!

For fans of the classic Americano cocktail, this bittersweet highball was on the menu of the 2017 halloween-themed pop-up PUB Dread in Washington, DC. At the bar they make the drink with a special Twizzler Soda, but here’s how they suggest mixing your own version at home.


  • 1 oz. Aperol
  • ¼ oz. Campari
  • ½ oz. sweet vermouth
  • 1 oz. strawberry syrup
  • 1 barspoon Pernod absinthe
  • 3 oz. sparkling water
  • Tools:barspoon
  • Glass:highball
  • Garnish:red licorice


Combine all the ingredients in a highball over ice, stir, then garnish.

Strawberry Syrup:
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup strawberries (tops removed and cut in half)
1 cup water

Heat all the ingredients in saucepan until the sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool, then strain into a bottle and refrigerate.
