So emcBlue isn’t the first place you run to for recipes, but I want to change all that…well, at least for Halloween! So while you were planning your spooky parties and gathering last minute touches to your costumes, you forgot to plan a drink menu! You have all the candy corn a person could want, but you have nothing spooktacular for your guest to drink. Don’t worry, not only am I an artsy, fashion-forward chick, I’m pretty nifty in the kitchen! So if you’re low on drink ideas, I’ve got you covered!
The first drink is the easiest! It’s called a Ghostini and not only does it’s striking white color grab your attention, the vanilla and chocolate flavors are ones everybody loves! So all you need is:
2 oz Vanilla Vodka , 1 oz White Chocolate Liqueur, Whipped Cream
Shake the ingredients with ice for a minute or two in a martini shaker. Pour into a martini glass and garnish with some whipped cream, and presto! Mm, mmm, mmmm…Casper never tasted so good.
The next recipe comes from yumsugar.com, and it’s pretty easy but very scary. It’s a Vampire Cocktail, and True Blood has nothing on it! I may be obsessed with vampires, but this drink is so good it leaves my bloodlust in the dust! (Scouts Honor!)
Strawberry Syrup, 1.5 oz Raspberry Vodka, .75 oz White Chocolate Liqueur, 1 oz Half and Half
This drink does take some minor bar tending skills, so be prepared! The first step is to rim the glass with strawberry syrup in the same way you would salt a margarita glass. Keeping your serving glass chilled will make the strawberry syrup stick. Lastly, combine the remaining ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake it like you mean it, and strain into martini glass, ta-DA! One blood-sucking cocktail!
I know every one’s not a drinker, and I totally respect that. Besides, someone needs to be the designated driver after all, right? So here’s an easy, non-alcoholic drink that is spiked with Halloween spirit! This last drink is called Frankenstein Punch, and it is incredibly easy to make.
2 1/2 Cups ginger ale, 1 Cup white grape juice, 1 Cup lemonade, optional-green food coloring
All you have to do is combine those ingredients together, and IT’S ALIVE! The drink comes out to be a muddy water color, so to make it more festive, I like to add a few drops of green food coloring. To me, it makes it pop and ten times more fun. Frankenstein may not have been the sexiest monster alive, but he knew how to make a good punch.
This Halloween, don’t bring out the lame fruit juice from a jug. Go the extra mile, and I promise you people will be talking about your party until next Halloween! Remember to drink responsibly!Tags: cocktails, Halloween, halloween drinks, halloween party, punch, vampire drinks, yumsugar.com
