Halloween isn't just a favorite holiday for kiddies. Adults
should be able to get a little spooky and enjoy Halloween, too (especially with
it falling on a Friday this year)! Whether you’re going out partying,
hosting a little soiree of your own, or just enjoying an evening of tricks and
treats at home, here are a couple ghoulishly fun Halloween cocktails to help
you keep in the “spirit” of things. ;-)
Start with a Ghostbuster. It is super simple, sweet and fruity, but it looks disgusting: what more could you want in a Halloween cocktail?! You'll need:
~ 1 ounce of peach schnapps
~ 1 ounce of melon liqueur
~ 3-5 drops of Irish cream
Shake the peach schnapps and melon liqueur in a cocktail
shaker with ice. Strain into chilled cocktail/martini glass. Add the drops of
Irish cream for effect.
What fun is Halloween without candy corn? Here’s a Candy Corn Martini that'll provide a yummy adult alternative. You'll need the
~ a chilled martini glass
~ 1 ½ ounces of coffee-flavored liqueur
~ 1 ½ ounces of white chocolate liqueur
~ 1 ounce of orange colored and flavored vodka (such as UV)
~ ½ ounce of triple sec
In your martini glass, pour your liqueurs in order over the
backside of a spoon.
Most of the “brains” drinks I find are questionable
concoctions that need to be shot quickly before they curdle…no thanks. Here’s a fun
one, Zombie Brains, that is tasty to drink and look at without, you know, all of
~ 2 ounces of UV Salty Watermelon vodka
~ 1 ounce of triple sec
~ 1 tablespoon of sugar
~ 1 splash of lime juice
~ 4 large ice cubes
Combine your of your ingredients but the 4 ice cubes in a blender full of ice.
Pour over the extra ice cubes in a glass and enjoy.
One last phantasmic concoction to try this Halloween is the
lovely Vampire’s Kiss.
~ 1 ½ ounces of Midori
~ 1 ounce of blood orange vodka
~ 2 ounces of pineapple juice
~ ½ ounce of cream
Combine all ingredients except the grenadine in a cocktail
shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a cocktail glass full of ice.
Drizzle grenadine around the glass for a bloody effect.
