The Vampire – Friday’s Featured Cocktail

I found this recipe and image on Fine Living which is now the Cooking Channel .

I love the Vampire Cocktail for Halloween because not only is it a work of art, this killer cocktail tastes so good it’s a sin!   It’s perfect for a Twillight inspired party or for a romantic drink with your honey on Halloween!  Pour it as a cocktail or serve it for dessert, either way it’s magnificent.

Cheers to a happy Halloween – be safe and drink responsibly.

  2. Dawn: We have some knowledge about some drinks; not all of them :D. I’m a big fan of dessert drinks like that which you made. The presentation is beautiful. I haven’t done that before.

    Adding milk, skim milk, or some type of cream before it goes in the blender smoothes out the drink. It will turn it more into a drink….and thin it out somewhat. You have to test and decide which type of milk/cream works best for you.

    The picture is scrumptious. I wanted to add a strawberry and mint leaves. 😉

    Most alcoholic dessert drinks are appropriately weak, with very little alcoholic content. Your recipe is appropriate. My suggestion for adding vodka should probably only be added if one hasn’t had any alcohol or much alcohol during dinner. OTOH; if its drunk as a cocktail…yeah…go ahead and spike it a bit with some vodka.

    Happy Halloween!!

  4. Thanks Dave! I really appreciate your great tips on the cocktails! The drink is very think so I will try the milk the next time.

  5. Drinks like that are great desssert drinks. The picture is terrific. Drizzling grenadine around it makes it look incredibly inviting. That is a great touch.

    Here is a tip to make the drink ever so smoother. Pour in a wee bit of milk with the icecream before blending. It makes the drink a bit smoother.

    If you wish to make the drink more potent and stronger, add 1/2 oz vodka.

    Happy halloween
