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

Ingredients:
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

Directions:
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
Vodka

Pomegranate juice

Jack-O-Lantern

 

Ingredients:

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

Preparation:

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

Directions

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.
