Dress Up Your Bloody Mary as a Bloody Scary Cocktail for Halloween

Bloody Scary Cocktail

Halloween is the time of year when it’s fun to dress up, including your cocktail. You can transform your Bloody Mary with a few spooky garnishes to make it a Bloody Scary for All Hallows’ Eve.


 I stay away from gore, but I do enjoy a little scary fun especially in a celebratory cocktail with Halloween falling on Saturday this year.


Use your Bloody Mary mix of your choice (we like ZingZang, available at the grocery store).  Crystal Head Vodka comes in a spooky skull bottle. Mix and serve with a skeletal hand, if you dare. . .


For spooky garnishes for your Bloody Scary, pickled okra (found on the aisle with the other pickles) makes delectable creepy green witch fingers! Attach a sliced almond for a fingernail with a little cream cheese. Skewer a mozzarella ball and top with an olive slice for a spooky eyeball.


I added a some poppy seed and pepper for a little black color to my Bloody Scary rimmer and served with a pair of festive straws.


For other cocktail options for Halloween, shake up a Skeletinia spooky infusion of vodka, Grand Marnier, pomegranate and lime juice.

Or infuse your vodka with candy corn and mix a Candy Corn Cordial. Let your candy corn steep anywhere from 3 hours to 3 days and strain the solids. The longer you steep your candy corn, the brighter and sweeter your infused vodka becomes. Add some Grand Marnier and meringue powder for a little froth. Full directions and steps here.


 Happy Haunting!

    I’ll take a Bloody Scary, Mary! You’ve embellished it to Halloween perfection. One of my sons introduced me to ZingZang this past summer when we vacationed in Florida, and it is delicious for the mix. I’m loving the skull vodka bottle being held in your skeleton hand! Cheers!
