Devilish Halloween Cocktails

With Halloween just around the corner you'll no doubt have stocked up on some goodies for this year's trick-or-treaters. But have you thought about treats for yourself?

Here we bring you three simple Halloween cocktail recipes so you can party in style come Friday night.


Black Devil Martini

What you'll need:
- 2 oz. dark rum
- 1/2 oz. dry vermouth
- black olive
- orange sugar

Preparation: Stir and strain into chilled Martini glass that has been rimmed with orange sugar, then garnish with black olives.


The Bloodsucker

What you'll need:
- 1 1/2 oz. Bacardi "0"
- 1/2 oz. Cointreau
- 2 oz. pineapple juice
- 1 Tbs. strawberry or raspberry puree

Preparation: Pour rum, Cointreau and juice into a shaker with ice. Shake mixture, then pour into a rocks glass. Dip the end of a drinking straw into the berry puree, hold the tip of your finger over the other end and use the straw to squirt puree into the bottom half-inch of the drink, where it will sink in red blobs. Do not stir.


Bloody Brain Shooters

What you'll need:
- 1 1/4 oz. strawberry vodka such as Stoli - 1/8 oz. Rose's lime juice
- 3/4 oz. Bailey's Irish Cream
- splash of grenadine

Preparation: Chill vodka for better smoothness. Add vodka and lime juice to a shaker; shake, then strain into a shot glass. Using a straw, dip some Bailey's Irish Cream into the shot. Once you submerge the straw into the Bailey's, put your finger on top of the straw to hold the Bailey's in the straw. Dip the straw tip into the vodka and slowly release your top finger. The Bailey's will curdle a little bit due to the lime juice and you should be able to make strands of Bailey's.

Repeat the straw/Bailey's process to build a "brain" in the shot glass. Add a splash of grenadine to the concoction to add the "blood" to the mix. Down the hatch as a shot.
