Tie One On Tuesday!

 I can't believe that Halloween is almost here. My house is all decorated, my costume is ready, all that is left is to mix up my favorite concoctions for my adult trick or treaters.

For all those blood suckers, I have the Vampire Kiss. This drink is so easy to mix up. It's a shame if you didn't make it.

Vampire Kiss
3 oz Champagne
1 oz Vodka
1 heavy splash of Raspberry liqueur
Fill a specially prepared glass* with ice
Add in 3 oz of Champagne and 1 oz Vodka.
Top the drink with a heavy splash of Raspberry flavored Liquor.
For an extra special touch, garnish with vampire teeth and serve.
Special prepared glass*
Pour ¼ cup of Clear Corn Syrup into a wide, shallow bowl.
Add a few drops of red food coloring and mix until the syrup has a bright red color.
Using a clear glass tumbler dip the rim in the syrup mixture and set the glass on wax paper and allow to dry overnight.  The syrup will drip down the glass creating the desired "dripping blood" effect.

When the undead come for your brain, offer up the Brain Fluid Float  instead. It's much taster than brains or other body parts, trust me.

Brain Fluid Float
2 ounces melon liqueur
1 ounce vodka
1 ounce irish cream (bailey's)
Combine ingredients in a mixing glass.
Add ice, shake, and strain into a cocktail glass.

For the swap monster in your life, give them The Bayou Slime. This yummy drink will remind them of home and put a big smile on their scaly face.

Bayou Slime
2 oz Dark Rum
6-8 fresh mint leaves
1/2 oz  Spiced Cordial Syrup
1 egg white
Muddle mint leaves and syrup together, making sure to crush the mint leaves.
Place all ingredients into a shaker.
Shake until well-chilled and frothy.
Strain into a chilled martini glass.
Garnish with additional crushed mint leaves.

Oh boy! Do those drinks sound yummy! I may not wait until Halloween and just have my own little trick or
