Halloween Drink Recipes: Dreadfully Delicious Drinksposted on 6/20/13
Last week we talked about a few of our favorite Halloween drink recipes for your spooky party. If you haven’t had a chance to check, take a quick look at the article. I shared two delicious Halloween drink recipes: the Black Devil Cocktail and Bloody Brain Shots. Today I’ll tell you about two more Halloween drink recipes that are so good I don’t even think my boss would be upset if I drank them Mad Men style during the middle of the day.
Heads in Cider
Ah, Martha Stewart. Don’t ever stop coming up with delicious Halloween drink recipes that make any party go from simply okay to fabulous. This recipe is simply to die for. Your guests will be happily surprised when they wander over to the punch bowl and see some floating heads waiting for them. Best of all, those heads will add some delicious spice to your cider. To start, preheat your oven at 250 degrees. Set aside a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Mix together 2 cups of lemon juice and 2 tablespoons coarse salt in a medium bowl. Peel eight Granny Smith apples and cut them in half through stem. Be sure to remove the core and seeds. On the round side of the apple, carve out whatever scary face you’d like! Transfer your apples to the lemon mixture then place them on a paper towel to dry. Once they have drained, place the apples, rounded-side up, on the parchment paper and bake them for 90 minutes. When the apples have thoroughly baked, place cloves in the eye sockets. Next, combine two gallons apple cider with 2 twelve-ounce cans of thawed lemonade concentrate, and two cups of spiced rum. Float the apple heads on top and enjoy! This recipe is so delicious it might be my favorite of our Halloween drink recipes series.
Vampire Bite Martini
A drink that requires props? Sounds good. Count me in. This is a delicious twist on your average vodka martini from Cooking With Sugar. The best way to start is by rimming a martini glass with sugar and strawberry syrup the night before your party. Freeze the glasses overnight. When you’re ready to serve drinks, drizzle a little syrup inside your glass. Pour 3 ounces of chilled Pinnacle Vanilla Vodka in a cocktail shaker with ice. Splash a little syrup in the shaker and shake well for a few seconds. Pour your cocktail into your martini glass and garnish with some vampire teeth. Bonus points if the teeth glow in the dark!
Writing about all of these Halloween drink recipes is making me thirsty. I’m going to go pour myself a drink.
