Dark and Stormy Death Punch

This chilling drink combines rum and ginger beer in a swirling taste of the night. First, combine one can of lychees in heavy syrup with about ¼ cup of fresh ginger in a saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil then set aside for thirty minutes to allow the combination to blend. Next, take an ice tray and place a lychee in each slot along with a maraschino cherry. Proceed to strain the syrup mixture over the cherries, then freeze until solid. Next, you will want to take ¼ cup of sugar and mix with ½ a cup of lime juice. Pour in approximately 16oz of rum and 4 bottles of ginger beer, then chill until cubes are finished. Lastly, fill your glasses with the ice cubes, pour in the rum mixture, and enjoy!

Blood and Sand

Serve up a blood and sand cocktail as a spooky addition to your party this Halloween. You will want to assemble four basic ingredients for this cocktail: scotch, sweet vermouth, cherry liqueur, and orange juice. Take ¾ parts of each, shake it up, and pour the concoction into a cocktail glass. These ingredients are basic but effective in creating a delicious tasting drink.

The Witch’s Heart

This drink is drop-dead delicious with a magical concoction of apple brandy and grenadine. This cocktail starts by placing a ¼ cup of apple brandy and ½ a cup of grape liqueur into a shaker. Place an ice cube in as well and shake until well combined. Pour the mixture into a martini glass and add a tsp of grenadine syrup for the perfect flavor. Optionally, you can add dry ice to the bottom of each glass for a spooky effect. When the drink mixture meets the ice the martini glass will become a witch’s brew.
