How disgusting is this?! I just love it!
Nicole and I decided that for the next 2 weeks we’ll be sharing Halloween drinks, one boozy and one kid-friendly. I’m starting with the boozy one. Of course.
This blood red cocktail is a mix of pomegranate juice and whiskey that’s garnished with pomegranate seeds which look like bloody teeth hanging out at the bottom of the glass. So gross, so fantastic. I want to throw a Halloween party just so I can serve these!
I am not a whiskey drinker but I did like it in this. I made my second one (I watched the debate while I drank these – you can’t fault me) with tequila and it was every bit as good. So switch things up as much as you want. Just make sure to use enough pom juice to get that gorgeous blood red color.
Nicole made a Slime Rickey! How cute is the name?! I’m dying over it! And just wait until you see it! She uses frozen grapes to look like eyeballs!
