Thirsty Thursday: Bloody Brain Shooters


It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. A hard thing to disagree with, we know. Drink up, get down and go to sleep happy.

When it comes to Halloween night, entertaining is a “no brainer”: It’s time to mix up a chilling beverage to go with the candy, caramel apples and spooky snacks. Satisfy your lust for blood with these Bloody Brain Shooters, an appropriately creepy, grenadine-laced concoction that’s enough to lure in brain-eating zombies.

For this bloody-good Halloween shooter, mix chilled strawberry vodka with lime juice and top with the bloody “brains,” a mixture of Bailey’s and dripping red grenadine. The results are positively spine-tingling.

This powerful potion is sure to liven up your Halloween night (but those zombies will stay positively undead).

Happy Halloween, folks!

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/4 oz. strawberry vodka
  • 1/8 oz. Rose’s lime juice
  • 3/4 oz. Bailey’s Irish Cream
  • Splash of grenadine
Directions:
Chill vodka for better smoothness. Add vodka and lime juice to a shaker, shake and strain into a shot glass. Using a straw, dip some Bailey’s Irish Cream into the shot. Once you submerge the straw into the Bailey’s put your finger on top of the straw to hold the Bailey’s in the straw. Dip the straw tip into the vodka and 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/Bailey’s process to build a “brain” in the shot glass. Add a splash of grenadine to the concoction to add the ‘blood’ to the mix. Down the hatch as a shot.
