Halloween Drink Recipe

Here is a great drink recipe, just in time for Halloween.

Hiram Walker has just came out with the Caramel Apple Liqueur.

This drink recipe is called the Caramel Apple Cooler, which is made with the Caramel Apple Liqueur.

1 part Hiram Walker Apple Liqueur
1 part Absolut Vodka
2 parts Pomegranate Juice
Squeeze of Lime

Build over ice in a rocks glass and enjoy!

You might also try using Pomegranate flavored vodka instead of the vodka plus pomegranate juice, for a stronger drink on the rocks.

Here's one from Skyy Vodka, using their Skyy Infusions Raspberry Flavored Vodka.

Skyy Infusions Vampire Blood

2 ounces Skyy Infusions Raspberry Vodka
4 fresh raspberries
1 ounce black plum puree
3 fresh lime wedges
1/4 ounce simple syrup
Lime and raspberry garnish

Muddle fresh raspberry, lime wedges, plum puree and simple syrup in a shaker.  Add ice and Skyy Infusions Raspberry Vodka and shake vigorously.  Strain into your favorite drink glass.  Add lime and raspberry on a pick, for garnish.

Cruzan 9

Looking for a mixed drink recipe for the Cruzan 9 Spiced Rum, I found the following in an old Indiana Beverage Journal - aka the 'Beverage Bible'.  BEAMIXOLOGIST - Bobby "G" Gleason Mixes....

He describes the Cruzan 9 Spiced rum as "On the nose it's vanilla forward with caramel and spice.  The sweet, aromatic rum also has allspice, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, ginger, mace, pepper and juniper berries that combine to create this smooth, easy drinking rum."

Swizzle #9 is the name of the drink.

1-1/2 parts Cruzan 9 Spiced Rum
1 part Cruzan Aged Dark Rum
1 part orange juice
2 parts Simply Apple fresh pressed apple juice
1-1/2 parts fresh lemon sour

Build over crushed ice in order in a tall or Hurricane glass and swizzle.  Garnish with a half moon slice of orange on the rim and a dusting of fresh ground nutmeg.

Now, doesn't that just simply sound tasty!  Thanks Bobby!

Bay of Passion

Here is another drink recipe from Thrillist.com and 42Below.

This drink is called:

Crown Royal Black

It seems as if cranberry juice has made it's way into a number of drink recipe's these days.

When I was at the Brickyard 400 in Indianapolis, there was a drink made with Crown Royal Black.  It also contained Sprite and Cranberry juice.  I do not remember the name of the drink, but it was very tasty!


Thought I'd share this interesting recipe that I found on a bottle of Candoni Moscato D'Italia, which is a sweet white wine from Italy.

Fresh squeezed lime to taste
Shaken & served up!

Shake all of the ingredients in medium shaker over ice.
Strain ingredients into a martini glass.
