Black Devil Martini and Other Spooky Cocktails

Is this not the coolest drink for a "grown-up" Halloween party?

Black Devil Martini Recipe

Dark rum and a black olive garnish give this martini its midnight hue. Rim the glass with coarse orange sugar to dress it up for a Halloween party.

2 oz. dark rum 
1/2 oz. dry vermouth 
black olive
orange sugar 
Stir and strain into chilled martini glass that has been rimmed with orange sugar, then garnish with black olives.

Zombie Cocktail Recipe

Like the walking dead, this cocktail packs a powerful punch thanks to apricot brandy and three types of rum: light, dark and high-proof Bacardi 151. Grenadine and orange juice give the drink its lovely pumpkin hue

1 oz. apricot brandy 
1 oz. light rum 
1 oz. dark or Jamaican rum 
1 oz. lime juice 
2 dashes grenadine 
orange juice 
1 oz. Bacardi 151 rum
Mix light and dark rum and brandy in a cocktail shaker, add lime juice and grenadine. Shake well and strain into a highball glass filled with cracked ice.
Fill glass with orange juice, but leave enough room to float the Bacardi 151 rum on top. Garnish with a cherry and an orange slice.

Liquefied Ghost Cocktail Recipe

This ghostly white drink tastes like a grown-up version of a milkshake — with a kick. Mix vanilla simple syrup, cream, vodka and soda together, then serve in a martini glass.
2 oz. vodka 
1 oz. vanilla simple syrup 
1 oz. cream 
2 oz. soda
Mix vanilla simple syrup, cream, vodka and soda together in a cocktail shaker, then serve in a chilled martini glass.
