Halloween Cocktail - All the Boos

 


My Halloween tradition has always been to make a fun cocktail to enjoy while passing out candy to the trick or treaters.  Halloween in my neighborhood has evolved into truck or treat activities and while I won’t be participating in that, I still plan to enjoy my cocktail and have some candy available in case my doorbell does ring.  I do hope to see at least a few cuties in costumes, because it brings back so many wonderful memories of Halloween nights past, my girls and their excitement. 

Now for the cocktail.  This year I chose an espresso type martini, but since I don’t do caffeine at all, I just used decaf coffee.  It was delicious and while I normally don’t do sugar rims, this cinnamon and sugar rim was just the right touch for this coffee flavored drink.  Its not a typical martini and mostly alcohol, so really is more of a dessert cocktail and perfect for an after dinner treat.  

Enjoy and Happy Halloween!

All the Boos

Brew some strong coffee (I used decaf) ahead of time and chill until ready to use.

Rub the rim of a martini glass with a few drops of maple syrup then dip in a cinnamon and sugar mixture on a plate.

In a martini shaker filled with ice add 3 ounces chilled strong coffee, 1 ounce rum, 1 ounce Kaluha, 1 ounce maple syrup, 1/4 cup milk, 1/2 cup half and half.  Shake well and then strain into the prepared martini glass. 

Makes 2 martini sized cocktails.

    1. Because of the amount of milk and cream, the coffee taste is not too strong. And you could substitute Bailey’s as well.

  3. My favorite fall drink is pretty simple... apple cider and champagne! My daughter in law calls it an "Appletini".

    1. We make those for Thanksgiving! Cider mimosas, but Unfortunately I sometimes have a hard time finding cider in Florida except in October.

    1. I miss the days of having 200+ and knowing the majority who was ringing my doorbell. I don't think it is like that anywhere now.
