Before the month gets away from me, I wanted to share a couple spooktacular Halloween treats with you. It’s almost the weekend, so I had to go with a cocktail. I am an absolute sucker for a signature drink at a party. They’re so fun and festive! Since there’s no better time to use party specific cocktails than during the holidays, I give you the Spooktini! I found the idea on pinterest and had to put a little CGC spin on it. I made Green Apple Martinis for mine, but if you wanted to make a mocktail for the kiddos, any slime green, non alcoholic drink would be perfect.
Spooktini (Green Apple Martini)
- 3 ounces of your favorite vodka
- 2 ounces of midori or green apple schnapps
- 1/2 ounce lemon juice
- 1 tube of red gel icing.
To rim the glasses with the gel icing, just squeeze out a little of the icing around the rim of the glass and then make streaks down the sides of the glass in various lengths. If you’re using grenadine syrup, pour about 1/3 cup in a shallow bowl. Dip the glasses in the syrup and then turn them right side up allowing it to drip down.
Pour the vodka, schnapps/midori, and lemon juice into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake for about 30 seconds to get it good and cold. Divide and pour into the rimmed martini glasses.
