Creepy Cocktails

  • 6th October 2015

I love Halloween. What better excuse is there to dress up, eat lots of sweets and carve an oversized fruit than All Hallows Eve? But when you have come down from your sugar-high and emerged from your pumpkin pie coma, you are going to need something to wash it all down.

So here is a list of the most devilish cocktails we could find – perfect to serve at a Halloween party or to delicately sip on while watching a scary film. Just be sure not to spill any on the carpet – the results could be deadly.

Corpse Reviver

This cocktail is well known in bartending circles for its high alcohol content – potent enough to wake the dead. To make this punchy beverage, first rinse your glasses in absinthe. Then fill a cocktail shaker with an ounce of each of the following ingredients: gin, triple sec, lillet Blanc and lemon juice. Shake vigorously with ice and strain into the absinthe glasses. Garnish with a brandied cherry.

Bleeding Heart Martini

This gruesome-looking cocktail uses pickled baby beets on cocktail sticks to replicate a bleeding heart. You will need to chill your glass before you begin to make this cocktail, and then rinse it in two ounces of dry vermouth. Then combine eight ounces of gin in a shaker with plenty of ice cubes and pour into the glass. Place your gory garnish into the cocktail and watch it bleed!

Jack-O-Lantern

This fruity concoction is created to look like a pumpkin. Pour one ounce of cognac, an ounce and half of orange juice, half an ounce of ginger ale and half an ounce of Grand Marnier into a cocktail shaker and shake violently. Strain into a lowball glass. The garnish is what makes this drink spooky. Take an orange wheel and a twist of lime and float on top of the drink so that it resembles the top of a pumpkin.

Frog In A Blender

This super-easy cocktail will leave all your party guests wondering if you really have blended a frog. Put a cup of ice, two ounces of vodka and four ounces of cranberry juice into a blender with two lime wheels. You can also add other fruit including grapes, berries and apple pieces. Then blend for just a few minutes, so that the drink still has plenty of lumps and pour into a chilled martini glass.

Zombie Punch

The easiest way to please everyone at a Halloween party is to make a punch. And none are more appropriate than this one. First of all, you need to stir ten tablespoons of dark brown sugar in 300ml lemon juice until it has completely dissolved. Then pour into a bowl along with equal amounts of white rum, gold rum, demerara rum, pineapple juice, lime juice and passion fruit syrup. Add 8-10 dashes of bitter and stir to combine. This looks best served in a hollowed out pumpkin. Garnish with plenty of lemon and lime pieces.

And there you have five of the most haunting recipes you will find this October. Happy trick or treating!
