Annette over at Swanky Tables posted a few days ago about Halloween cocktails she had seen on Martha Stewart. You think you would not be able to drink something black but when you read the recipes they sure do sound good. Let me know if any of you try these!
Halloween Cocktail Recipes:
Ghost in the Graveyard Cocktail:
-2 ounces black vodka
-2 ounces creme de cacao or coffee-flavored liqueur
-1 scoop vanilla ice cream
-Pinch of finely grated nutmeg, for garnish
In a glass, combine vodka and creme de cacao, and set aside. Place a scoop of ice cream in a highball glass, and slowly pour vodka mixture over ice cream. Garnish with nutmeg; serve immediately.
Screwed-Up Screwdriver Cocktail:
-1/4 cup ice
-1/2 cup freshly squeezed tangerine juice
-1 1/2 ounces black vodka
-1 black licorice twist, for serving
Place ice in a tall glass. Pour juice into glass. Pour vodka over the back of a cocktail spoon into glass so it sits on top of juice and creates a layer of black. Slice 1/4 inch off each end of licorice, and use as a straw. Serve immediately.
Berry Scary Martini Cocktail:
-1 cup ice
-1 ounce black vodka
-2 ounces cherry juice
-Fresh raspberries and blueberries, for garnish
Combine ice, vodka, and cherry juice in a cocktail shaker; shake vigorously. Pour into a martini glass. Thread raspberries and blueberries onto a cocktail skewer, and place in drink. Serve immediately.
