Happy Halloween Golden Bloody, Boozytini

I’m going out to get a bite to drink.
George Hamilton

Oh what a fun theme this weeke at the cooking club Spooktacular Suppers and what better way to start the party with a cocktail while the cauldron boils and bubbles? Tieghan has a wonderful list of seasonal drinks including one that we tried out last night, the “I Put a Spell On You” Poison Apple Martini sparkling with edible gold a very pretty concoction, but difficut to photograph the swirling golden glitter while sipping spiced spiked apple cider. Such a tasty treat for grown-up Halloween company.

Poison Apple Martini ingredients makes 1 drink and I like to thoroughly chill the ingredients long before cocktail time.

2 tablespoons spiced apple cider
2 tablespoons pomagrante juice
2 ounces apple vodka
1-2 teaspoons real maple syrup
a sprinkling of edible glitter
chilled martini glass

Add all of the ingredients to a chilled cocktail shaker along with a few ice cubes. Shake and then pour into your chilled matini glass…enjoy while stirring your bubbling cauldron of (in my case) Italian tomato and eggplant soup.
