With Halloween fast approaching, where does your mind go first: Is it to pasting together witch costumes for little ones to (not at all scarily) roam around in or to covering yourself in blood (fake, I hope) and preparing to party the night away? Well, if it’s the first, let us make you a deliciously devilish cocktail to make the face painting and last minute outfit sourcing a little less painful. If it’s the second… Can we come with?
This Halloween, The Cocktail Man brings you an eerie, excellent tipple: The Dead Man’s Daiquiri. It’s the perfect pairing of Dead Man’s Fingers Spiced Rum and a Blood Orange Sliqueur that’s sweet but tart and sinfully sippable.
Everything you need to muddle up an All Hallows’ Eve cocktail is included in my signature box, including a syrupy Sliqueur that comes in an occasion worthy blood bag. Play with the syringe shooters to inject your cocktail with flavour, fun and perhaps a drop more Sliqueur (we won’t tell if you won’t).
To make this wonderfully spooky drink at home, make sure you have a handful of ice cubes, a cocktail shaker and some fresh citrus on hand – for this one, I like a slice of lemon or orange to add a brilliant burst of freshness. It’ll serve four ghouls with a smaller drink left for a late gatecrasher. (It’s up to you if you share or not, though.)
So, rather than settle for something routine or rote this scary season, try something new. There’s a limited number so don’t dilly dally – there’s really no time! Pop your order in so we can make sure you’re ready for Halloween, Cocktail Man style. There’s really no other way.
