Halloween cocktails

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be doing the first in a series of Halloween posts and it’s all about Halloween cocktails. Whether you’re having a party or you just want something fun to drink while handing out candy, these cocktails are perfect.

The first cocktail is Blood Orange Sangria and this recipe serves four to six.

What You Need:

  • 6 blood oranges
  • 2 750 ML bottles of Pinot Grigio
  • 1 cup of Club Soda
  • 1/2 cup of Brandy
  • 12 ounces of strawberries sliced
  • 1 pint of raspberries
  • 1 chopped apple
  • 1/2 cup of sugar to rim the glasses

What You Do:

  • Take one blood orange and zest it, then in a small bowl combine the sugar and the orange zest. Rub it together with your fingers until the orange zest is fragrant.
  • Then take four of the blood oranges and juice them, discarding any seeds. And cut the remaining blood oranges into pieces.
  • In a large pitcher pour in the blood orange juice, wine, brandy, club soda, apples, strawberries, raspberries and blood oranges and stir until well combined.
  • Take the orange zest sugar and place it on a plate. Get your glasses and run an orange, lemon or lime around the rim of each glass and dunk them in the sugar, making sure you coat them well.
  • Fill each of the glasses with a couple of ice cubes, pour the sangria and added some fruit from the pitcher to top it off.
  • Serve and enjoy!
  • This can be made overnight or ahead of time because it definitely gets better the longer the flavors can combine.

The second cocktail we have is Pumpkin Pie Shots. This recipe is super easy and makes four shots.

What You Need:

  • 2 ounces of Caramel Vodka
  • 2 ounces of Pumpkin Spice liquor
  • 2 ounces of Rumchata
  • Sugar to rim the glasses, but this is optional

What You Do:

  • Pour the Caramel Vodka, Pumpkin Spice liquor and Rumchata in a cocktail shaker and shake until well combined.
  • If you want to rim the glasses, dip them in corn syrup then dunk in a shallow dish with colored sugar.
  • Pour evenly into the four glasses serve and enjoy!

The second to last cocktail we have is a Ghost-tini, this is on the sweet/rich side. And this recipe makes three to four cocktails.

What You Need:

  • 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 packet of Sweet’N Low
  • 4 ounces of Whipped Cream Vodka. You can also use Vanilla or White Chocolate if you prefer them
  • 4 ounces of Rumchata
  • 1 cup of ice
  • 6 Lindor White Chocolate Truffles
  • Candy eyes and lollipop sticks

What You Do:

  • Roughly chop the White Chocolate Truffles and add them to a small saucepan with the heavy cream and the Sweet ‘N Low. Stir over low heat until the chocolate is melted, smooth and everything is well combined. Remove it from the heat and set aside.
  • Once the white chocolate mixture has cooled, put it in the blender and add the vodka, Rumchata and ice. Blend that until the ice is completely broken up and it’s all well combined.
  • Take the lollipop sticks and carefully put it through candy eyes, making sure they’re in the middle of the stick.
  • Pour the martini into the glasses and top with the candy eyes on a stick.
  • Serve and enjoy!

And the last cocktail we have is the Purple Potion and this recipe makes one drink.

What You Need:

  • 2 ounces of Vodka
  • 2 ounces of Coconut Juice
  • 5 ounces of Pomegranate Italian Soda
  • 5 ounces of Pineapple Juice
  • Purple food coloring, this is optional
  • Dry Ice

What You Do:

  • In a tall glass combine the vodka, coconut juice, pomegranate Italian soda and pineapple juice.
  • If the purple color isn’t exactly where you want it, add a drop of the food coloring.
  • To make it really potion like, add one small cube of dry ice and make sure you use tongs. Don’t drink until the dry ice has dissipated and be sure to make guests aware of this as well.
  • Serve and enjoy!
