HALLOWEEN COCKTAILS

THREE POTENT POTIONS TO GET YOU THROUGH THE NIGHT 




It’s Halloween week! And luckily for you, Elgin is here to provide the spookily distanced entertainment… Because not only does he have THREE spooky podcast stories waiting for you over on Apple, Spotify and all your fave podcast apps, but he also has some terrifyingly tasty Halloween cocktails up his sleeve! Just remember, these are best enjoyed while listening to your favourite story from The Hauntings of Elgin Barrett. 


ELGIN’S ELIXIR

Elgin’s Elixir is a blood-red way to keep the dread at bay. And don’t forget the sprig of rosemary for remembrance.


INGREDIENTS

8 x fresh blackberries (plus one for serving)
1 x sprig of rosemary (plus one for serving)
Juice from 1/2 lemon
1 tbsp honey
1 x shot gin
2 dashes of angostura bitters
Sparkling water, for topping


HOW TO MAKE

Add blackberries, rosemary, lemon juice and honey to your shaker and muddle together.
Add gin, angostura bitters and plenty of ice.
Shake for as long as it takes to say “A blood red way to keep the dread away” five times. 
Strain into your glass and top with sparkling water.




BARRETT’S BARFTIME

Make it as strong as you dare. The clue is in the name.


INGREDIENTS

1 x shot dark rum
1/2 x shot blue curacao
Juice from 1/2 lime
1 tsp sugar syrup (equal parts water and sugar syrup)

HOW TO MAKE

Add all the ingredients to your shaker along with plenty of ice.
Shake while counting backwards from 13.


THE FEDWEN SOUR

The perfect preparation for the terrors of the night. Always serve spine-chilled.


INGREDIENTS

1 x shot gin
Juice from 1/2 lemon
1/2 an egg white
1 x dash angostura bitters
1/4 x shot sugar syrup

HOW TO MAKE

Add the ingredients to your shaker with plenty of ice and shake for as long as you can hold your breath.

Why not float an eyeball in your drink for maximum terror? These can be made by fitting a blueberry into a carefully carved hole in a lychee or a snake fruit.
