Halloween party guests will love sipping this cocktail, which is made with a combination of light and dark rum, pomegranate juice, a lime wedge, and simple syrup. Coat the rim of each glass with black sanding sugar for a frightening finishing touch.
To create the licorice spider, loop a 36-inch-long black licorice lace around three fingers four times. Remove fingers and wrap long end of lace around middle of bundle three times. Tuck loose end under last wrap and pull through to secure. Cut through the ends of the bundle to create dangling legs on each side.
