Everyone all across the country is getting ready for Halloween parties and dressing up as ghoulish ghosts and the characters from Twilight and spooky zombies. Tonight is probably the biggest party night of the Halloween season because it’s the Saturday before, so I thought it would be an appropriate time to hand over one more cute Halloween cocktail recipe for this belated-is-the-new-on-time Friday 5 O’Cocktail. And if this cute little drink isn’t your Halloween speed, try this disgusting Eyeball Martini on for size!
The Jack-o-Lantern Cocktail!
I think the biggest challenge for this drink is to track down an appropriately shaped glass, so I suggest an alternative: get some of those black plastic spiders and just float them on top of the orange in whatever shaped glasses you have – then you can just be boring and rename it the Generic Halloween Cocktail. :) Either way, you’re sure to get buzzed.
And the best part of all this is that today is National Potato Day – so a Vodka Cocktail is just oh-so clever!!!
So I found this recipe on ThatsTheSpirit.com, courtesy of SKYY Vodka and I wanted to share it with you.
Happy Halloween everyone!
1 oz. SKYY Vodka (or any vodka of your choice)
1/2 ounce triple sec
1 ounce mango juice
1/2 ounce orange juice
1/2 ounce fresh sour*
Combine all of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and pour into a goblet glass and garnish with a slice of orange and a mint leaf laid flat on top.
*Combine 1/4 oz fresh lime juice and 3/4 oz simple syrup.
