Back in Black Cocktails

Let the Goths suck blood this Halloween. There's a better way to get into the Holiday Spirit - with Black Vodka! You can pick up Blavod brand for $24 a bottle. It allows your Martinis to Masquerade for the day. Here are some ways to serve it to your guests along with some other Creepy Cocktails that should get you into the holiday mood.

SCREWED UP SCREWDRIVER
1/4 cup ice
1/2 cup orange juice
1 1/2 oz. Black Vodka
1 strip of Black Licorice to garnish
Place ice in a tall glass. Pour in orange juice. Pour vodka over the back of a spoon into the glass so that it rests on top of the juice. Slice off the tips of the licorice to use as a straw.


GHOST
1 1/4 oz. Smirnoff Vanilla Vodka
1/4 oz. Godiva White Chocolate Liquer
1/4 oz. half & half
1 t. grated white chocolate
Wet the rim of a cocktail glass and dip into White Chocolate. Pour all other ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake. Pour into glass.

BLACK MARTINI

2.5 oz Black vodka
1/2 oz Sweet Vermouth
maraschino cherry to garnish

Place Vodka and Sweet Vermouth into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake.
Strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with the cherry.




BLOOD SUCKER
1 1/2 oz. Bacardi "0"
1/2 oz. cointreau
2 oz. pineapple juice
1 Tbs. strawberry or raspberry puree

In a shaker with ice pour rum, cointreau and juice. Shake and pour into a rocks glass. Dip the end of a drinking straw into the 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.
