Halloween Cocktails

Halloween is all about the kiddos, but what about the adults who want to chime in on the fun? I have a great post on how you can add Halloween cheer to your evening of frights with some a lovely Halloween Cocktail Tribute to Alice Cooper. Oh, and as for the recipes, one of America’s Top 100 Chefs, Andera Letard from Andrea’s Cooktales created all of the recipes for your enjoyment!

Feed My Frankenstein 

Sugar rim:
1/2 cup sugar
A few drops red food coloring 

Simple syrup:
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
Handful arugula
2 sprigs mint 

2 ounces vodka
1.5 ounces green chartreuse 
1 ounce mint arugula simple syrup
Red Sugar
Cherries, for garnish 

Make the sugar rim by mixing together the sugar and food coloring on a plate. Sit and let dry for at least 1 hour. Make the syrup by bringing the sugar, water, arugula, and mint to a boil. Blend the syrup mixture together in a blender then strain out the herbs. Refrigerate until ready to use. To a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add the vodka, chartreuse, syrup, a squeeze of lemon, and shake together. Rub the rim of a cocktail glass with a lemon wedge or dip in lemon juice then dip in the sugar mixture. Pour in the drink mixture and add a skewer of cherries to garnish.
