Here's how to make the blood for a wickedly tasteful drink

Deathly Margarita GlassWhat makes Halloween or a vampire party so special? It's the spooky creations that set the theme of the party right. Well spooky drinks are no different. You can easily go from plain & mundane to errie blood creations in just a few steps. Or should I say in just a few bites....
  • 1 c. Sugar    
  • 1/2 c. Karo Syrup
  • 1/2 c. Water
  • Red Food Coloring

The "Blood Rim" is made from the same kind of mixture as you use to make hard candy. Combine sugar, syrup and water. Cook without stirring to hard crack stage – which is 300 degrees F. Add food coloring.Turn off heat. While the mixture is still hot, all you have to do is dunk the top of the cocktail glass into the mixture to create the red rim. whichever you prefer. Flip the glass right side up to cool. Now, Do you need a recipe for the drink to go inside? How about a Blood- Tini?

The Bloody-tini is simply a fun Halloween cocktail and would be great for a spooktactular dinner party. Other great drinks would be the Black Martini or Vampire Kiss.

  • 2 oz VeeV Acai Spirit
  • 1 oz acai juice
  • 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
  • Top with fresh champagne
  • lime wedge for garnish

1. Combine VeeV, Acai juice and fresh lime with fresh ice in a cocktail shaker and shake.
2. Strain into a chilled martini glass and top with champagne.
3. Serve with a fresh lime wedge or bloody rim glass.

Here's another recipe
  • 1/2 cup Grenadine Syrup
  • 1/2 cup Corn Syrup
  • 1 to 3 Drops Green Food Coloring

Mix the Grendine and Corn Syrup. Add green food coloring one drop at a time, mixing thoroughly after each, until the 'pink' edge has been taken off the mixture. Pour into a wine glass, and swirl. The concotion looks very good under bright light. If you plan to drink it, though, I recommend you cut it half-half with water. It all depends on how you want to use it. Inside a glass, rim of a glass. Or even on someones face!
  • Hey yall.... remember this idea for Christmas too. Not the blood part but the red part inside a Christmas drink would be great! 
  • Did you know there;s also chocolate blood?
