Cocktail Hour: The Coffin Liner

Snakes and Cocktails and Owls, Oh My!
This is Halloween! This is Halloween! Halloween, Halloween!

I tend to spend the month before Halloween thinking up amazing costume ideas and then hoping fervently that one of my friends actually throws a fancy dress party. So far my favourites are:
  • An Evil Victorian Pie Seller (with a tray of dubious pies)
  • The Statue of Liberty from the end of Ghostbusters 2 (complete with mini Ghostbusters on my crown and Jackie Wilson playing on repeat)
  • Head Swapping Princess Mombi! The fabulous villain from Return to Oz (I really want to be a Wheeler as they're terrifying but even I can't spend all night roller skating on all fours)

Alas there have been no costumed invites this year, which is probably a good thing as most of these costumes would take an age to create. But I can still celebrate with a drink or two and this glamourous cocktail not only looks like something an undead Marie Antoinette might enjoy but it's got a good kick that'll hopefully make me more amenable to those snot filled bratty Trick or Treaters.

The Coffin Liner
You will need:
  • 50ml Chambord Liqueur
  • 50ml Scotch Whisky (I used Loch Fyne Blended Whisky)
  • 15ml Elderflower Cordial
  • 25ml Freshly squeezed orange juice
  • Heart shaped sweet (I used a Haribo, and ate all the leftovers, sorry Trick or Treaters)
  • Cocktail stick or mini staking device of your choice (could be an umbrella, I won't judge)
Make It!
  1. Shake the Chambord, whisky, cordial and orange juice over ice.
  2. Strain into a martini glass.
  3. Drop the heart shaped sweet into the glass and give your guests each a staking device to rid their drink of EVIL! (i.e. eat the sweetie.)
Happy Halloween!

  1. I have exactly none of the correct ingredients so just made this using homemade damson vodka, jack Daniels, sparkling elderflower and the juice of a satsuma. It is most delicious! I feel a little squiffy already :-D
