Here’s a selection of scary drinks for you to try this Halloween. These are definitely more Treat than Trick 🙂
1) Jekyll & Gin
- 3 oz. Gin
- 1/2 oz. lemon juice
- 1 tsp. grenadine
- 1 handful ice
- tonic water
Mix the gin, lemon juice and grenadine in a cocktail shaker; pour into a large glass filled with ice.
Top with tonic water. Garnish with a glow stick or a fluorescent straw.
In a mixing glass, add a double shot (50ml) vodka, 50ml blackcurrant juice, and a splash of Chartreuse. Stir ingredients with ice, and strain into a chilled martini glass.
3) Smoked Pumpkin
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add 50ml Orange vodka , the juice of 1 lime, 50 ml of Tequila or even better Mezcal, 2 heaped bar spoons of pumpkin seed butter (available from health food and organic shops like Wholefoods market) , and 2 dashes of orange bitters. Shake and strain into a tumbler with cubes of ice. Garnish with an orange twist and a sprinkle of smoked sea salt.
P.S. once you’ve tried a few of our Halloween drinks, check out Kona Kai’s “Tiki Halloween” party on Saturday , starting at 5pm. Certainly a different twist on the usual dark and gloomy theme. Maholo!
