Ready for some of the grimest halloween mocktails? Cassie has rounded up some of the funnest, and creepiest sounding, drinks to have a sober halloween. Enjoy!
Mr Firzpatrick’s sell a cordial which is fascinatingly named ‘Blood Tonic’. I think that’s because it’s supposed to be good for your blood? But the name is too good to waste. It’s made from rosehips and nettles, which sounds appropriately witchy, and is a good source of vitamins A, C, D and E.
15ml Lime Juice
15ml Blood Tonic Cordial (Mr Fitzpatrick’s)
2x Blood Orange Slices
3x Mint Leaves
Ginger Ale to dilute & Garnish with a lime slice and mint sprig.
Pour in cordial and lime juice. Half fill the glass with ice, add orange slices and mint, add more ice, fill with ginger ale/ginger beer, add straw and garnish.
Now we’ve rejuvenated your blood we’ll bring in the vampires.
475ml cranberry juice, chilled
120ml apple juice, chilled
180ml soda water, chilled
4 gummy vampire teeth
Red food colouring, golden syrup and a little water.
Mix together the food colouring, golden syrup and if necessary thin with a little water to make your fake blood. You can use this to edge your glasses.
In a jug combine the cranberry juice, apple juice and grenadine. Stir together then add the soda water.
Pour in the drink evenly into the glasses. Garnish each glass with the gummy vampire teeth and serve.
50ml Earl Green tea infusion
25ml Mandarin/freshly squeezed orange juice
Infuse Earl Green for 20 mins. (Or you could use Earl Grey if you prefer, but the green looks more Halloween applicable.)
Combine equal parts Earl Green infusion and mandarin juice in cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain into martini glass.
Garnish with round orange slice.

120ml blueberry puree
Make a little hole in your melon balls and poke in a blueberry, these are your eyeballs
Combine blueberry puree with lemonade, pour into a martini glass and float the eyeball in your spooky mocktail.
