[ “A Witch’s Potion ” ]

Working as a bartender has allowed me to experiment with different kinds of alcohols. My girlfriend Stefanie called a couple days ago & explained she was attending a Halloween party for the upcoming weekend. She requested some health conscious cocktails that would eliminate bloat but still taste delicious. I created these two drinks for her. One is a martini- “A Witch’s Potion” [ watermelon juice, tequila, water & a splash of Cointreau ] & the other is “The Bloody Goblin” [ pomegranate juice, vodka & water ]. Cheers!

Quick skinny tip: for every cocktail consumed drink one glass of water. There will be less of an AM hangover & water flushes the toxins [ & bloat ] out quicker.

[ ” The Bloody Goblin ” ]


“A Witch’s Potion” 

 

* Makes one spooky martini

1.5 ounces white tequila [ my pick: Don Julio Blanco ]

1.5 ounces of fresh watermelon juice

1 splash of Cointreau

2 ounces water

2 drops black food coloring

 

Use a lime to dampen the rim of the martini glass . Rim glass with red salt or red sugar. Add ice and all ingredients to martini shaker. Shake well. Strain into glass. Add a spooky garnish for an added touch.

 

” The Bloody Goblin “

 

* Makes one creepy cocktail

1.5 ounces of vodka [ my pick: Chopin ]

2 ounces of water

1 ounce of pomegranate juice

2 drops black food coloring

 

Rim half a glass with red salt or sugar. Add ice to glass. Pour pomegranate juice over ice. In a shaker mix vodka, water & black food coloring together. Shake well. Take a the back of a spoon and strain the mix slowly against the back of the spoon. Allow it drip on to the pomegranate juice. Be careful; this is tricky! Do not mix it up- the layered look is what you’re trying to achieve. Enjoy!
