Hookah smoke in a glass on a grey background with hookah tube

 

I love Halloween and apart from  carving pumpkins and baking spooky treats. I love to decorate my home with Halloween decorations and mix up a frightful cocktail or two.

The Witching Hour

This cocktail may be best enjoyed at the witching hour, but be warned one sip and you’ll be bewitched.

Ingredients

  • 1jigger calvados
  • 1tsp grenadine
  • 2jiggers blackberry vodka
  • Martini glass to serve

 

Cocktail shaker

Ice

strainer

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Place the calvados, blackberry vodka and ice into a cocktail shaker. Shake rigorously
  2. Strain the drink into a martini glass.
  3. Pour 1 tsp of grenadine syrup, about an inch from the surface of the drink – the grenadine should sink to the bottom, creating a “bleeding” effect.
  4. If you frost the rim of your martini glass before pouring in your drink it is most effective.
