The Horror Honeys: Hexmas Treats ~ Spooky Cocktails

Hexmas Treats ~ Spooky Cocktails

Black Vodka Cocktails

Halloween parties can be low brow red cup affairs, or high class experiences with all the right spooky touches. The cocktails below are definitely of the fancier variety, but hey, when you're using ingredients like these, go big or grab your pet spider and go home. 

The star of the show:
Blavod black vodka - yes, you read that right...BLACK VODKA 
The colour of the vodka is changed by adding catechu, a herb found in southern Asia and central and east Africa. Rich in tannin, catechu has no effect on vodka's flavour.

Instant badass. 

Blood Orange


35ml Blavod Original Black Vodka
20ml Antica Formula Sweet Vermouth
1 tsp Grand Marnier / Cointreau
1 tsp gomme
2 x dash bitters

Stir like a vodka martini and serve with an orange twist.

Blackberry Collins

High Ball

50ml Blavod Original Black Vodka
25ml lemon juice
25ml gomme syrup
soda water
5 fresh blackberries

Muddle berries and add the remaining ingredients. Shake and strain into a 12oz hiball. Top with soda. Garnish with a blackberry and a lemon twist.

Happy Hexmas!
