Recipes: Halloween Cocktails (Part 1)

Boo! Sunday is Halloween and to celebrate, mix up one–or all–of these spooky (and scrumptious!) cocktails for yourself or a group. Check back tomorrow for even more ghoulish sips.

Midori Melon Eye-Tini
1 ¼ parts Midori Melon liqueur
¾ parts SKYY Infusions Citrus
½ part Finest Call Agave Syrup

2 parts Finest Call Sweet & Sour Mix
3 Orange Wedges
2 Fresh Ripped Basil Leaves
Strawberry Sundae Syrup

In a shaker glass, combine Midori Melon liqueur, SKYY infusions Citrus, Finest Call Agave Syrup, three orange wedges and two fresh-ripped basil leaves. Muddle ingredients together. Add ice and Finest Call Sweet & Sour Mix. Shake for 10 seconds. Add Canada Dry Green Tea Ginger Ale and roll drink back and forth between your mixing tin and shaker glass. Strain into a chilled martini glass drizzled with strawberry sundae syrup to give an effect of a bloodshot eye. Garnish: Chilled red seedless grape at bottom of glass (to look like an eyeball) and spanked basil leaf floated on top of cocktail for aroma.
