This multicolor cocktail is easy to make and infuses your Halloween with delicious fun, giving you a great excuse to try black vodka!
Ingredients for 1 cocktail:
1/4 c ice
1/2 c orange juice
1 1/2 oz. black vodka
1/2 oz. triple sec
1 orange wedge, for garnish
1.In a cocktail shaker, combine the orange juice, triple sec, and ice.
2.Shake vigorously and strain into a glass.
3.Slowly pour the black vodka over the convex side of a spoon so that the vodka sits on top of the orange juice, settling in slowly and creating a mysterious, cloudy swirl.
4.Dip one edge of the orange slice into the vodka to give an eerie, dripping dye job, and slip it onto the rim of the glass.
Dr. Jekyll’s Secret Potion
Dr. Jekyll’s Secret Potion is full of blackberry and lavender flavor, and Halloween spirit. This Halloween cocktail is chilled with dry ice, which is an optional spooky touch. If you do decide to use dry ice, please remember to be careful and not to let the ice have direct contact with your skin, and do not swallow it.
Ingredients for batch of 4 cocktails:
8 oz. vodka
4 oz. parfait amour liqueur
1 oz. blackberry liqueur
2 oz. simple syrup (infused with tarragon, if you can)
1 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 oz. lavender syrup
4 lavender sprigs
1.In a cocktail shaker, combine the vodka, syrups, and liqueurs with ice.
2.Shake the mixture well until it becomes very cold, which should take about 20 seconds.
3.Pour the mixture into beakers and add a small piece of dry ice to the beaker, if you’d like. Do not drink the cocktail until the dry ice has COMPLETELY dissolved.
4.Garnish with lavender sprigs and blackberries. You can also garnish with purple sanding sugar by wetting the rim of the empty glass, spreading the sugar on a plate, and swirling the glass rim in the sugar.
