8 Spooky Halloween Drinks
Only 10 days left until Halloween! That means Halloween parties, which also means Halloween cocktails! We’ve poked around the web for the spookiest Halloween drink recipes we could find.
Bloody Brain Shooter
Chill vodka for better smoothness. Add vodka and lime juice to a shaker; shake, then 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.

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in all your ingredients except for the grenadine. Shake it well and strain into an old-fashioned glass. Drop the grenadine over an ice cube and serve quickly so it looks like blood in the water.

Non-Alcoholic Cemetery Slime Punch
Arrange the gummy worms in a 12-compartment ice tray, letting them hang out over the edges of the tray. Fill with root beer and freeze at least four hours or overnight.
With a small ice cream scoop, fill the bottom of a one-gallon punch bowl with scoops of both frozen yogurts, using the full container of each. Very slowly fill the punch bowl with root beer, which will foam up to create the “slime.”
Float the wormy ice cubes on top of the punch. Fill each punch cup with a scoop of ice cream and an ice cube. Float additional worms on top of the punch or in each glass.

Creepy Eyeball Martini
– 4 ounces Vodka ( Ised Ciroc)
– 3 oz lychee syrup/juice (canned lychees, drained, reserve syrup/juice and lychees)
– 2 oz Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur
– 1 oz green tea simple syrupFor the Simple Syrup:

Bring water to a boil and pour into glass measuring cup. Let sit for one minute then add the green tea bag. Let steep 3 minutes. Remove the bag and add in the sugar, stir until dissolved then chill completely before using. This makes more than the drink calls for, store the remaining simply syrup in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Use it to sweeten other cocktails or even just a cup of green tea.
For the Cocktail:
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, add in all the cocktail ingredients, shake well and divide between two martini glasses. Take a couple of the lychee fruits and put blueberries in them to make the “eyeballs” either sink a couple into the drinks or skewer and rest on top. Serve drinks chilled.
