From the Perspectives’ Happy Hour Bar
Boo! How you doin’? I had trouble deciding which Halloween cocktail to post this year, so if you’re one of those people who live for Halloween, it’s your lucky day! Here’s an extra-innings spooky sipper that is strictly for adults from the fun folks at BreadBoozeBacon.com.
The colors might not look all that enticing, but this sweet and fruity drink is the total opposite of how it looks. It’s one of my favorite spooky Halloween cocktails to scare up some fun with all the guys and ghouls!
Beetlejuice is loaded with fruity liqueurs that’ll have everyone asking for another round. It is the secret combination of Midori, Chambord, Blue Curaçao and Sweet & Sour that gives this drink a bright Beetlejuice green color. Then we add some cranberry to creep it up a bit!
If you’re familiar with your grammar school color wheel, you’ll remember green and red make brown. That color combo stirred together gives this drink that creepy greenish-brown color. Perfect and totally awesome for a Halloween party!
So, turn on the juice and see what shakes loose. This ghost with the most knows what he’s talking about people! Just be careful not to imbibe too much or you’ll be saying Beetlejuice… Beetlejuice…Beetle… oops! That could have been bad.
Prep time: 3 minutes
Yield: 1 cocktail
1 ounce vodka
1/2 ounce Midori melon liqueur
1/2 ounce Chambord raspberry liqueur
1/2 ounce Blue Curacao
2 ounces sweet and sour
1-1/2 ounces cranberry juice
ChefSecret: If you like layers of creepiness, float the cranberry juice on top and don’t mix it in. It looks like blood floating on top.
Quip of the Day: “Let's turn on the juice and see what shakes loose!”
