Bloody Brain Shooters

A haunting drink is a spooktacularly essential addition to any Halloween-related celebration. Here’s a shock-inducing shot that’s sure to impress the living dead party goers at your October 31st festivities.




1 1/4 oz strawberry flavored vodka
1/8 oz lime juice
3/4 oz Bailey’s Irish Cream
splash of grenadine
* a straw to make the brain


Combine strawberry flavored vodka and lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Give it a vigorous rattle and strain into a shot glass. (Note: Chilled vodka will result in a smoother taste.) Now for the ghoulishly fun part:  Use the straw to get some of the Bailey’s by blocking the top of the straw with your finger with the straw submerged into the Irish Cream. Then dip the straw filled with Bailey’s into the shot of vodka. Now, slowly release your top finger. The Bailey’s will curdle a little bit due to the lime juice and you should be able to make strands of Bailey’s. Repeat the straw and Bailey’s process into the shot glass to build a “brain.” Add a touch of grenadine on top to add a “bloody” effect to the shooter. Down that brain like a good little zombie.
