Delicious Drinks!

Halloween Inspired Drinks
What you'll need:
5 oz black vodka such as Blavod (or vodka + black food coloring)

1/2 oz Pernod

Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add black vodka and Pernod. Shake vigorously for 5 to 10 seconds. Strain into a cocktail glass.
What you'll need:
1 oz black cherry vodka
1/2 oz grenadine
maraschino cherries for garnish
Coat the bottom of a highball with grenadine.
Add ice and vodka.
Fill with cola.
Garnish with cherries.

What you'll need:
For the blood:
3 tablespoons corn syrup
1/4 teaspoons red food coloring
For the drink:
20 ounces pineapple juice
1 can (15 ounces) cream of coconut
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup orange juice
10 ounces rum
Directions for the blood:
Pour the corn syrup in a shallow bowl. Dip a toothpick into the food coloring, and stir a very small amount into the syrup to combine. Hold a glass by the stem, dip rim into the syrup mixture, and turn glass, coating entire rim. Turn the glass upright, allowing mixture to drip down sides. Dip the remaining glasses. Set aside.
Directions for the drink:
Whisk together drink ingredients. Place 2 1/2 cups ice in a blender, and add 1 cup drink mixture. Blend until smooth; add more pineapple juice if mixture is too thick. Repeat with remaining ice and mixture. Carefully pour into prepared glasses; serve.
What you'll need:
2 tablespoons of raw sugar
dark chocolate
2 oz chocolate liqueur
2 oz vodka
1 oz chilled espresso
1/2 teaspoon fresh orange juice
a strip of orange zest
Mix 2 tablespoons each raw sugar and finely chopped dark chocolate on a plate. Combine 2 ounces each chocolate liqueur and vodka, 1 ounce chilled espresso, 1/2 teaspoon fresh orange juice and a strip of orange zest in a cocktail shaker with ice; stir well. Moisten the rim of a chilled martini glass and dip it in the sugar-chocolate mixture. Strain the cocktail into the glass and garnish with an orange wedge.
