Mix it up: Halloween Cocktails

Fancy drinking something a little different this Halloween? Let Brizzle’s Cocktail Soc show you how to mix it up tonight (and maybe get mortal in the process)

#1: Bloody Mary

Usually considered a hangover cure, the Bloody Mary is a punchy, ballsy cocktail, hitting you with layers of spice, sweet and sour. If you believe in hair of the dog, save this one for Friday morning!

50ml Vodka

120ml Tomato Juice

15ml Lemon Juice

Half tablespoon Brown Sugar

3 Dashes Worcestershire sauce

2-8 drops Tabasco Sauce

Pinch Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Pinch Celery Salt (doubt this is in ones every-day cupboard, optional)


To serve: Build over plenty of ice, saving the tomato juice till last, and add as much Tabasco Sauce as you can handle!


#2 Zombie

If you can ‘t take the savoury wrath of Mary, try out the Zombie.
However, beware! The fruit is a cunning disguise for such high alcohol content, hence the name.

25ml Dark Rum

25ml White Rum

15ml Overproof Rum

15ml Lime Juice

20ml Golden Falernum (almond, ginger, cloves and allspice syrup)

15ml Cherry Liqueur

25ml Pineapple Juice

10ml Grenadine


To serve: Shake all ingredients with plenty of ice, and strain into a highball glass filled with fresh cubed ice.



#3 Corpse Reviver

Think more refreshing, than fruity, the Corpse Reviver is one for the more refined drinker due to its ingredients. It’s fresh, orangey and dry, with a herbal hint from the absinthe.

25ml Dry Gin

25ml Lemon Juice

25ml Cointreau (or other quality triple sec)

25ml Lillet Blanc (any white wine will do!)

Rinse of Absinthe


To Serve: Swill around and discard of the absinthe in your glass for flavour, then add the pre-shaken other ingredients with crushed ice
