Spooky Celebration Cocktails… Halloweenitinis

The saddest day in a young adult’s life is the day you are called out for being too old to trick-or-treat. Halloween goes from being one of the best days of the year to a little bit of a bore. Once you turn 21, however, Halloween takes on a whole new meaning. You get to still dress up even though it’s a little beyond age appropriate. If you are a parent, you can still take part in your kid’s fun. Instead of trick-or-treating, you get adult candy. Delicious, alcoholic adult candy. And for people who wish to enjoy the Halloween spirit with a little cocktail, I introduce to you the Halloweenitini. This cocktail is inspired by candy corn but tastes like dessert. White chocolate liqueur, vanilla vodka, and orange juice team up to create a beautiful layered creation. It’s quick and easy and a great way to entertain your over-age trick-or-treaters. 

Makes: 8 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes     Total Time: 10 minutes

6 oz Godiva white chocolate liqueur, chilled
6 oz vanilla vodka, chilled
8 oz orange juice (the less pulp the better)
2 drops red food coloring
2 drops yellow food coloring

  • Mix the vanilla vodka, orange juice, and food colorings in a large liquid measuring cup.
  • Layer 3/4 of an ounce of the white chocolate vodka into each martini glass.
  • Gently later 2-3 oz of the vanilla vodka mixture on top of the white chocolate layer. Pour slowly!! The better the pour the more even the layers will stay.
  • Serve chilled immediately.
