CRYSTAL HEAD VODKA: CRYSTAL SPIRITWednesday, October 29, 2014
I don't need much of an excuse to make a cocktail, but cocktails in little skull glasses, now we are taking!
I have teamed up with Crystal Head Vodka to get some scare into your glass this Halloween. Over the next three days I will be featuring some of their fabulously creepy but ridiculously tasty cocktails, just in time for your Halloween parties.
Today we head straight in with a delicious Crystal Spirit. Channel your inner James Bond for this one and of course, shaken not stirred if you please!
2oz Crystal Head Vodka
1/2 oz Dry Vermouth
1/2 oz olive brine
Decoration: 2 fresh green olives and a cocktail stick
Place the ingredients in a cocktail shaker (or mason jar, like me, who does not yet own a cocktail shaker!) with plenty of ice. Secure the lid and shake until everything is cold. Strain into a glass and skewer the olives with the stick to decorate your drink.
This is a seriously drinkable cocktail and I love that it isn't sweet and over the top. I like my cocktails to taste grown up and this fits the bill perfectly.
Why didn’t the skeleton dance at the Halloween party? Because he had no body to dance with!
