Some people think of fall as the season of pumpkin spice, and others see the cooler weather as a sign that Halloween is just around the corner. With horror movies on every channel, a crisp chill in the air, and festive parties featuring all manner of monsters and creepy-crawlies on the horizon, it’s hard not to get excited.
One of the funnest aspects of throwing — or attending — a Halloween get-together is, of course, setting the ambiance. Themed drinks are a must, and we’ve been inspired by one of the quintessential staples of Halloween: fake blood.
To match the theme, today’s recipe is for bloody coffee milkshake shots. This recipe uses espresso, heavy cream, tequila, amaretto, corn syrup, and red food coloring for a spooky-festive drink that can definitely scare your guests.
True to its name, this cocktail is best served in a shot glass. However, we’ll be crafting these in batches for ease of access. Since the recipe calls for heavy cream, you’ll need a blender to get that fluffy texture. The good news is that it’s a one-stop drink — toss most of the ingredients into the blender, mix, and then have a bloody good time.
