♥ screwed-up screwdriver

Thursday, October 20, 2011

Over the past 3 years, the Swede and I have thrown Halloween parties complete with fog machines, champagne pong, dry ice, and signature Halloween drinks. This year, our apartment will be filled with moving boxes so we will be venturing out with friends in LA instead.  But just because we can't throw a party this year, doesn't mean we can't pre-party beforehand with festive drinks. ;-)

Vodka has always my preference when it comes to liquor and this recipe is perfect to serve for friends for the holiday.  Black Vodka is brilliant for Halloween, it adds a dark as night color to a famously clear liquor without drastically disturbing any of the flavor characteristics.
To achieve this perfectly Halloween-esque hue, you only need a couple ingredients combined with orange rimming sugar that makes for a pretty presentation, or you can also garnish with a clip-on spider.

Ok that looks super cool - & I love me a good vodka/orange juice drink. Does the black vodka reeeally taste like regular vodka?? I've gotta admit..I'm a little skeptical. Black licorice is probably my least favorite tasting thing so I'm sort of picturing it tasting like that. So how close is it to the clear stuff? :o)

Is there anything else I can use besides the black vodka? My 13 yr sin is having a Halloween themed birthday party this year and I think these would be great for the drink.
