Cocktail Creation - Dracula's Disaronno

You may have guessed that this is a Halloween post so, firstly, I want to wish you all a Happy Halloween.
I imagine there will be a lot of Halloween parties going on over the weekend and on Monday and we all know there's nothing like a great Halloween party with a terrifyingly delicious cocktail!

So I decided to have a go at my own frightful creation. Whether it is frightful by theme or by flavour you will have to decide for yourself but I thought is was amazing.

Those of you who know me well will know that disaronno is "my drink". So I decided to base my cocktail on this. And because of how similar to blood it seemed to look (which was really by complete accident may I add) I decided to give it the fitting name of Dracula's Disaronno!

Give it a try and let me know if you like it or how I could improve it for next Halloween :)

Method (based on one serving)

1. Firstly, sprinkle some sugar onto a saucer and add a few drops of red food colouring. Allow the colouring to be absorbed for a moment. Next, moisten the rim of the glass you are going to serve it in, place the rim on the saucer and twist. Allow the food colouring (I mean blood) to run down the sides of the glass for a spooky effect.
2. Blend a handful of frozen blackberries with 50ml of water.

Making the cocktail
3. Add 75ml of disaronno in a cocktail shaker.
4. Then add 200ml of cranberry & raspberry juice.
5. Followed by the blended blackberries.
6. Shake until mixed.
7. Pour into your glass.
8. Finally, add 10ml of grenadine so it sinks to the bottom.

9. Add 3 blackberries to garnish.
10. Add spooky accessories for decoration.
11. Add a few ice cubes.
