Spooky Rum Lab

Just for fun we had a spooky day yesterday in the Rum Lab.    We tried to create some  new cocktails for the up and coming Halloween Parties.    We took a look at several of the more traditional cocktails of the season, most of which are vodka based and went "rummy" with some new twists to the ideas.
Most of the cocktails were ugly and seemed to be a study in "gross out" rather than in good mixocology.    We took some time to create some cocktails to fit the season, taste good, and could be garnished to your Halloween theme.

The Devil's Workshop
  • 1 1/2 oz Brinley Coffee Rum
  • 1 oz Creme de Banana
  • 3/4 oz. Plantation Overproof Rum
  • 1 oz. Half and Half
Place all the ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake until chilled strain into a Martini glass and grind some fresh nutmeg on top.     Garnish with your favorite Halloween do-dads.

Robert's Tea Party
  • 1 1/2 oz. Plantation Guyana Rum
  • 3/4 oz. Lime Juice
  • 1/2 oz/ Cane Syrup or Clover Honey
  • 2 oz. Green Tea (Semi-Sweet)
  • 2 oz. Barrett's Ginger Beer
Place all the ingredients except the Barrett's Ginger beer into a shaker with ice and shake until chilled.     Pour into a pint glass and top with Barrett's Ginger Beer.     Garnish with your favorite Halloween do-dads.

Hallucinations
  • 1 oz. Coconut Rum
  • 1 oz. White Rum
  • 1 oz. Melon Liqueur
  • 1 oz. Galliano
  • 1/4 Tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
Place all the ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake until chilled, strain into a Martini glass and garnish with your favorite Halloween do-dads.


     These are a couple of the really fun ungross cocktails that we were able to come up with, hope you can have some fun with them at your Halloween Party.   Happy Halloween to all   ;o)
