Party Halloween Cocktails

A important component of that party I’m having: booze. Good Halloween cocktails are hard to find because drinking is not scary. It’s what you do after drinking that’s scary. 🙂

Here are some cocktails:

Black Martini

3.5 oz black vodka
.5 oz blackberry brandy or Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur (you can also use cherry juice according to another recipe)
Berries for garnish

Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass or serve on the rocks in an old-fashioned glass. Thread raspberries and blueberries onto a cocktail skewer, and place in drink.



Black Widow

Cream de Cassis
triple sec
fresh lemon juice
Pomegranate juice
licorice strings






1 oz Hennessy VSOP Cognac
1.5 oz orange juice
.5 oz ginger ale
.5 oz Grand Marnier
orange wheel and lime twist for garnish


1. Combine all ingredients in a shaker.
2. Strain into a lowball glass over ice.
3. Float an orange wheel topped with a lime twist on top.


Eyeball Highball


14 medium radishes
7 pimiento-stuffed olives, halved crosswise
16 ounces gin or vodka
1 ounce vermouth


1. Trim stem and root ends of radish. Use a paring knife to scrape red skin from radish, leaving just enough to give a veiny appearance. With a small melon baller, cut a hole in radish, about 1/2 inch in diameter. Fit an olive half, cut-side facing out, into hole. Place radish in ice-cube tray. Repeat with remaining radishes. Fill tray with water; freeze.

2. Mix vodka or gin with vermouth; stir with ice. Divide eyeball ice cubes among four glasses. Strain martini; pour into glasses, and serve.


And don’t forget the ultimate in spooky drinks, absinthe.
