Creepy Cocktails for Halloween in Cayman

 

CayBlog is back with another Halloween special! If you've already read our posts on costumes and events, you're in for a treat. The following creepy cocktails are perfect for Cayman, whether you're hosting your own party or attending one of the many exciting island happenings.

 

Witch's Brew

In a recipe from the Food Network, Witch's Brew is a great recipe that makes enough for between 16 and 20 party-goers. For added effect, mix it all up in a black cauldron or themed punch bowl – you can even add dry ice.

 

Ingredients

 

  • Lime gelatin (6 oz.)

  • Boiling water (2 cups)

  • Pineapple juice (3 cups)

  • Ginger ale (chilled, 2 litres)

  • Vodka (chilled, 2 cups - optional)

  • Dry ice (optional) 

  •  

Directions

 

  • Add the lime gelatin to a large bowl and slowly stir in boiling water, until completely dissolved.

  • Add the pineapple juice and let cool to room temperature.

  •  

  • Before serving, add the ginger ale and vodka, if using, and stir to mix.

  •  

  • Optionally, add dry ice for an extra exciting effect. Do not consume until completely dissolved.

  •  

  • Vampire Blood

Another Food Network classic, Vampire Blood is a non-alcoholic Halloween beverage that's perfect for the kids. Make it extra special by adding green food colouring to water and freezing for ghoulish ice cubes!
