'True Blood' inspired Halloween cocktail
October 08, 2009
I vant to drink your blood. But good manners suggest settling for a potent cocktail of another kind.
True Blood's Sookie Stackhouse might offer her undead guests a little Vampire Kiss to take the edge off the evening on Halloween.
This berry-flavored sparkling Martini made with Finlandia vodka, Chambord and Korbel Champagne makes for a ghoulish good time for guests.
Vampire Kiss Martini
1 ½ oz Korbel Champagne
¾ oz part Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur
Rim an oversized chilled Martini glass with red sugar (use food coloring to mix your own) or drop in a set of wax vampire teeth for a real surprise.
Pour vodka and half of the Chambord in the Martini glass, top with Champagne and pour the remaining Chambord over the back of a spoon to make it float.
