3 Amazing Halloween Cocktail Recipes, 2012
These seasonally-appropriate concoctions, courtesy of celebrity caterer Andrea Correale, sounded (and look) too awesome not to post.
Candy Corn Cooler
2 oz. SKYY Infusions Pineapple vodka
1.5 oz. orange sherbet, softened
1 oz. pineapple juice
1 oz. milk
1 oz. simple syrup
Combine SKYY Infusions Pineapple and pineapple juice in cocktail shaker with ice. Strain over fresh ice into a clear Collins glass. Combine softened orange sherbet and ice in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. Strain, and pour over bar spoon to layer in the rocks glass. Then, combine simple syrup and milk in cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. Layer milk mixture on top of sorbet mixture.
1 oz cognac
.5 oz Grand Marnier
1.5 oz orange juice
.5 oz ginger ale
orange wheel & lime twist for garnish
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Shake well and strain into an ice-filled rocks glass. Garnish with an orange & lime “Pumpkin Top”.
“Pumpkin Top” Garnish
Fold a small piece of lime twist/peel in half and insert it into the center of an orange wheel.
Bourbon Pumpkin Pie Milkshake (makes 2 shakes)
2 cups vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup cream or half and half
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup pureed pumpkin
1/2 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
2-3 ounces of bourbon
frosting + sprinkles (or cinnamon sugar) for glasses
Add all ingredients to a blender and mix until combined. Rim glasses with a light coating of frosting then dip in sprinkles. Pour in shake and sprinkle cinnamon on top. Top with whipped cream if desired. Serve!
This is amazing. I love having special drinks at our Halloween party. We would put try ice in mixed drinks and martinis for a smokey effect in the past. I may try the Candy Corn Cooler this year.
