Ready to add some spook to your style this Halloween? Time for a black Halloween cocktail that’s perfect for serving up at your Halloween parties!
This cocktail has all the flavors of fall (apple + spice) while looking wickedly fitting for the spooky season. Plus, it’s the perfect “black widow” color!
Serve these up at your Halloween party for some extra scare!
I love these skull glasses (found at a craft store) but these would be just as fun in a martini or other cocktail glass.
I rimmed the edges of the glass in red corn syrup for a creepy “blood” effect. Glowing candlelight and we’re having ourselves a frightfully good time, aren’t we?
Above is a photo of the simple “rimming” technique to give your skull cocktail that extra spooky boost.
- Simply mix corn syrup with red food coloring and a little granulated sugar to create a red paste.
- Dip and twist the rim of the glass.
- You can use this technique with regular sugar, salt, red sprinkles, you name it!
- If you add enough of it, it’ll slowly start to drip down your glass for that creepy look.
