Since we are entering the Pink New Moon around April Fool’s Day, it seemed appropriate to properly introduce my Pink Moon Cocktail.
This Sunday, October 17th. Erick and I will be haunting Sooky Little Halloween’s IG Live series as Sips & Spirits.
“Awaken the Spirits” is here! I decided to brew up my own fun by awakening the spirits at home with “Summon the Spirits” cocktail!
The Pilgrimess is an interesting ghost. In life, it was never fully confirmed if she was indeed a witch, but the cocktail that was inspired by her actually honors her name, Isabella. We’ve substituted grenadine with pomegranate liqueur from the original recipe, but it still turned out delightful. The Pilgrimess [amd-yrecipe-recipe:14] What choice would you […]
The Angry Princess is a very depressing ghost to me. A beautiful woman who just couldn’t see the beauty in herself and brought her life to an unfortunate end. For this cocktail, I was inspired by the “Pretty Lady” recipe which came out beautiful looking then added some pomegranate liqueur for that red mistake the […]
Today’s cocktail is inspired by the Absolut Boston Home Run recipe with my own special twist. The Torn Prince was a baseball star who was taken too soon in a car racing incident. I’ve made his cocktail more bitter with the juice choice as an ode to the bitter swift end of his little slugger […]
The Withered Lover is the ghost responsible for inspiring me to want to create the Dark Zodiac Cocktails. I knew what drink I wanted to make for this ghost quite a few months ago. Inspiration from the only kind and gentle ghost of the Dark Zodiac, the Withered Lover is the ghost of a loving […]
The cocktail choice for this particular ghost was a little bit of a challenge. I wanted something flirty (since that is what brought about this ghost’s demise) but not too sweet or whimpy. This ghost was very self-centered and vain and I wanted a cocktail that also reflected this. I feel like egg white drinks […]
Continuing on with our Dark Zodiac Cocktails, today’s recipe is for the Torso. Inspired by the ghost of a gambler who made a bet with a deadly pay out, this Gin drink got some inspiration from a cocktail called “The Bronx Ain’t So Sweet”. The Torso [amd-yrecipe-recipe:9] What choice would you have made for the […]
I love watching scary movies. But I get really scared of scary movies too. It’s a vicious cycle. However, I’m pretty particular about my scary films. They have to have some sort of supernatural element. I cannot stand serial killers, psychopaths or slashers. Now give me a good ghost story and I’m all yours. One […]
Inspired by HedgeComber’s Pink Elephant cocktail recipe, I sought out to make this recipe in large batch format so I wouldn’t need to keep mixing it up for guests during the party. Everything was chilled in advanced so the drink would be ready to serve. You may have also noticed that I substituted lemons in […]
I’m not sure how it happened, but over the years, we’ve accumulated a couple bottles of Bailey’s Irish Cream. Because of this, I really wanted to make something that used it. I don’t know if it goes bad or what, but these bottles are just sitting around, so I thought, “Why not?”. I took an […]
