This week’s post is all about Halloween and fun! If you are planning an adult Halloween party, then you need a great signature cocktail to serve to your ghouls and goblins. We created the Booberry Martini. This martini is a sweet drink with a blueberry flavor. If blueberries are not your favorite, you can substitute cranberry juice or pomegranate juice. However, the blueberry pomegranate juice gives the beverage a nice dark purple tone which is perfect for Halloween.
In our martini we are featuring Crystal Head Vodka. Crystal Head is not only the perfect vodka for Halloween because of the skull bottle, but it is also fitting because it is owned by Dan Aykroyd, former Ghostbuster!
Our purple potion is created with simple ingredients. Use 1 1/2 parts vodka, 1 part blue curacao, 1 part pomegranate blueberry juice, 1 part pineapple juice, 1 part grenadine and a splash of fresh lime juice.
Pour all ingredients over ice into a shaker. Shake for 30 seconds. Strain and pour into serving glass. Top off with a splash of fresh lime juice. The splash of lime juice helps to soften the sweetness of the fruit juices. We made one batch with lime juice and one without. We preferred the flavor of the lime juice batch.
No Halloween party is complete without the perfect serving glasses. We happened to own a few of these Crystal Head martini glasses, but I found some other festive serving glasses you can purchase through Spirit Halloween and Oriental Trading Company.
