Halloween brings out witches, zombies and, of course, vampires. This week’s cocktail is flavourful enough to quench even a vampire’s thirst — which is good news for your other guests. The Vampire’s Punch is refreshing and crisp, with tart cherry and subtle sour citrus, plus a touch of sweet lemon-lime fizz.
Happy Halloween my friends!
1 oz. Russian Standard Vodka
1/4 oz. Luxardo Maraschino liqueur
1/4 oz. Fresh Lime juice
1 oz. White Cranberry juice
1 oz. Sprite
Garnish with a cranberry
Pour all ingredients except for the sprite and grenadine, in a short glass with ice. Top with Sprite. Cut a cranberry in half and place on a cocktail pick (resemble Vampire fangs). Drizzle grenadine over the fangs till the drink turns colour.
You can make your own grenadine by combining equal parts sugar, hot water and pomegranate juice.
For an additional spooky look, use food colouring in the water when making ice cubes.
