Be sure to serve the following at your next Halloween party without the kiddies (their menu follows in the un-Un-Whined category below.
First one up is the Zombie: 2 oz of Light Rum, 1 oz Dark Rum, 1/2 oz Apricot Brandy, 1 oz Pineapple Juice, 1 oz Orange Juice, 2 capfuls of Lime Juice and two packets sugar. Blend all ingredients with ice, pour into a tall glass and garnish with an orange slice or cherry, whichever you prefer.
Next, try the Red Death: Combine 1/2 oz each of the following – Vodka, Peach Liqueur, Almond Liqueur, Triple Sec, Sloe Gin, Lime Juice, and Orange Juice. Blend together and serve in a highball glass. Garnish with an orange slice.
When you’re done with that try Satan’s Whiskers: Shake together 1 oz each of Gin, Sweet Vermouth, Dry Vermouth, and Orange Juice. Add to that a 1/2 oz of Orange Liqueur and a couple dashes Triple Sec. Pour into a cocktail glass and yes, garnish with an orange slice.
Now for the proverbial Bloody Mary: You got it – Pour Vodka, Bloody Mary mix, pepper, and Tabasco sauce into a tall glass, stir and garnish with an
orange slice sorry, I meant celery stalk.
Oh, for you beer lovers, try Harpoon’s or Shipyard Pumpkin Ale. And yes, this smells and tastes like pumpkins – well, what did you expect?
For the un-Un-Whined crowd try the Cafe Di Cioccolata – combine 1/2 part espresso (add more espresso if you like a stronger coffee flavor) and 1 part cocoa in a cup and add boiling water (stirred, not shaken) and garnish with a dollop of Cool Whip.
For the Halloween monsters serve them the Monster Slime Juice: 6 oz. Kool Aid or similar blueberry mix, 12 oz orange juice concentrate, and one gallon of water. In a big punch bowl combine the Kool Aid mix and the orange juice concentrate, then slowly add the water. It should start turning green and the kids will love it.
And what to have with all these drinks? Why chocolate, of course!
