Ghoulishly Halloween Cocktail Recipes

Still looking for some ghoulishly good cocktail recipes for the big Halloween party? What do you think about these three ideas - tricks or treats?

--------------------------------------------------

Devilís Tail

What youíll need to get started:
A blender, ice, chilled saucer-style champagne glasses, and the following ingredients:

1-1/2 ounces (1/2 jigger) gold / dark rum
1 ounce (1/2 pony) vodka
1/2 ounce lime juice
1/4 ounce grenadine
1/4 ounce apricot liqueur
1/2 cup crushed ice
Garnish: Lime peel or twist*

Place all ingredients except the garnish into the blender and pulse gently just until drink gets slushy. Divide among champagne glasses (serving count will vary depending on the size of the glasses) and serve with a twist of lime in the glass.

*Slice off both ends of a lime. Make two shallow parallel slices through only the skin of the lime, running from end to end. Gently use a knife to loosen the green skin only or peel it loose before giving it a quick twist to release its essential oils before dropping it into the cocktail. This technique is also used to make lemon and orange twists.
