Halloween Cocktail Recipe #1: Smokin’ Wicked Martini
- 2.5oz fig-infused vodka
- .5oz triple sec
- .5 oz orange juice
- .5 tsp activated charcoal
- fig slice for garnish
- 1 cup ice
- dry ice
- cocktail shaker
In the base of your shaker, combine the ice, vodka, triple sec, orange juice, and activated charcoal. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds or until well combined. Garnish your martini glass with the fig slice and pour the contents of your shaker into the martini glass. If using, add a piece of dry ice to the martini and serve.
Halloween Cocktail Recipe #2: Blood + Blackberry Mule
- 2oz vodka
- 2oz ginger beer
- 1oz blood orange juice
- 5 blackberries
- 10 mint leaves + extra sprig for garnish
- 1 cup ice
Start by muddling four of your blackberries and the mint leaves in the base of your glass. Smash until the blackberries are pretty much juice and the mint is smashed and oils released. Pour in vodka, blood orange juice, ice and stir everything well to combine. Top the drink off with the ginger beer and garnish with the mint sprig and remaining blackberry.
Halloween Cocktail #3: Sparkling Cauldron
- 5oz prosecco
- 1oz st. germain
- 2 fig slices for garnish
- 1 rosemary sprig for garnish
Fill your champagne flute with Prosecco. Top with a floater of St. Germain. Garnish with fig slices and rosemary sprig, and serve.
Don’t forget the sweets too! Love a monochromatic black theme for the treats.
