All Hallows Eve is, and always has been, a day of overindulgence. Yet, while once upon a time you reached for the tootsie pops and chocolate bars, today, you may crave something a little more sophisticated. Colorful cocktails with a healthy twist, such as Witch’s Heart, Vampire’s Kiss, and Poison Apple, put a whimsical twist on traditional adult beverages. If you’re less trick and more treat and want to celebrate with class this Halloween, raise a toast with one of these favorite healthy Halloween cocktails.
Made with a splash of Apple Brandy, a hint of Blackberry Liqueur, and a dose of grenadine, the Witch’s Heart is truly a flavorful masterpiece.11 However, its taste — though superb — has nothing on its appearance.
A shimmery, beautiful, purple-y hue, the Witch’s Heart looks like something straight out of a fairy tale. Once you add the dry ice, it actually begins to smoke, giving the beverage the appearance of a cauldron in the midst of cooking up a spell. To bring to life this magical concoction, you will need the following:
- 3 ounces Homemade Blackberry Shimmery Liqueur, chilled
- 5 ounces apple brandy or apple-flavored vodka, chilled
- 1 tsp grenadine
- Powdered dry ice or dry ice in chunks
- Add the first two ingredients and a single ice cube to a shaker.
- Shake, then strain the mixture into a martini glass.
- Top off the drink with more shimmery liquid.
- Slowly pour the grenadine into the glass and watch as it bleeds to the bottom.
- Top off the mixture with ½ tsp of powdered dry ice and watch the magic happen.
Note: Dry ice is not safe to consume. Wait until all the smoke has completely evaporated, as only then is the beverage safe to drink.
The blood-red hue of this twist-on-a-martini belies the sweet and fruity flavor profile of the Vampire’s Kiss.22 Once you add the dry ice and the beverage starts to smoke, it will appear almost too sinister to consume. Don’t be afraid, though — once you take one sip, you won’t want to put it down. To make this Halloween drink recipe, you will need the following:
- 5 ounces vodka
- 1 ounce Chambord
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon 100% cranberry juice
- 1 tablespoon grenadine
- Granulated sugar
- 1 small dry ice cube
Mix ingredients one through five in a shaker with a handful of ice. Rim the martini glass with sugar, if desired. Strain the drink mixture into the martini glass, then add half-an-inch to one-inch cube of dry ice (Be careful! Make sure to wear gloves and use tongs.). Enjoy the smoking effect for up to five minutes. Once the smoke subsides, take a sip and become one with the night.
Snow White’s evil stepmother has nothing on this potion. Bright green in color, the Poison Apple poured into a rounded martini glass and rimmed with red food coloring will recall the Disney classic for those old enough to have watched it.33 And for the rest of you, it will remind you of the perfect Granny Smith. Either way, the cocktail is easy to make and, with a cube of dry ice thrown in, just sinful-looking enough to make you want to reach for it. To brew up this potion, you will need the following:
- 5 ounces vodka
- 5 tablespoons Sour Apple Mixture
- 5 tablespoons Sour Apple Schnapp Liqueur
Throw these three ingredients into a shaker with a handful of crushed ice and shake for 30 seconds. Strain into a martini glass, top with a cube of dry ice, and watch it smoke for up to five minutes. Then, drink up.
