Beverage Monday.

Halloween Themed Drinks
Here are a few drinks to get the party started early.

Black Devil Martini

  • 2 oz. dark rum
  • 1/2 oz. dry vermouth
  • olive

Pour ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain into chilled martini glass, garnish with olive.


  • 1 oz. apricot brandy
  • 1 oz. light rum 1 oz. dark or Jamaican rum
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 2 dashes grenadine
  • orange juice
  • 1 oz. Bacardi 151 rum

Mix light and dark rum and brandy in a cocktail shaker, add lime juice and grenadine. Shake well and strain into a highball glass filled with ice. Fill glass with orange juice almost to the top. Float the 151 on top. Garnish with a cherry and orange flag.

Liquefied Ghost

  • 2 oz. vodka
  • 1 oz. vanilla simple syrup
  • 1 oz. cream
  • 2 oz. soda

Pour all the ingredients into a ice filled shaker. Shake. Strain into a chilled martini glass.

Bloody Brain

  • 1 1/4 oz. strawberry vodka or Strawberry Schnapps
  • 1/8 oz. Rose's lime juice
  • 3/4 oz. Bailey's Irish Cream
  • splash of grenadine

Add vodka and lime juice to a shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a shot glass. Using a straw, dip some Bailey's Irish Cream into the shot. Once you submerge the straw into the Bailey's put your finger on top of the straw to hold the Bailey's in the straw. Dip the straw tip into the vodka and slowly release your top finger. The Bailey's will curdle a little bit due to the lime juice and you should be able to make strands of Bailey's. Repeat the straw/Bailey's process to build a "brain" in the shot glass. Add a splash of grenadine to the concoction to add the 'blood' to the mix. Down the hatch as a shot.
