The Witches Heart

01 Jan

Brought to us by John

1 jigger apple brandy or apple vodka chilled
1 tsp grenadine
2 jiggers (or to top up)Homemade Blackberry Shimmery Liqueur (see notes)chilled
Powdered dry ice optional
Martini glass to serve

Add about 1/2 – 1 tsp of powdered dry ice to the bottom of the glass (optional).

Place the apple brandy and purple shimmery liqueur in a shaker. Add 1 ice cube and shake for a few seconds to chill the drink. Strain the drink into a martini glass. Top up with more purple shimmery liqueur if necessary.

Pour 1 tsp of grenadine syrup, about an inch from the surface of the drink – the grenadine should sink to the bottom, creating a “bleeding” effect.

Add about 1/2 tsp of powdered dry ice on top and serve with a stirrer, so that your guests can stir the “potion” to create that shimmery, smoky effect.

Poison Apple Cocktail

01 Jan

Brought to us by John

1 ounce vanilla vodka
1/2 ounce orange liqueur
1 ounce sour apple liqueur or schnapps
1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
1-2 ounces champagne
green sugar for rim
light corn syrup (optional)

Lightly dampen the rim of a cocktail glass and dip in green sugar. Set aside. Tip: For better adhesion, dilute two tablespoons of light corn syrup with a few drops of water. Use your fingertips to apply the syrup to the rim of the glass.

Place vanilla vodka, orange liqueur, sour apple liqueur and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker filled 2/3 with ice. Shake until jet cold (about 20 seconds). Strain the drink into the cocktail glass and top with chilled champagne. Tip: Serving the drink with dry ice makes a dramatic presentation, but use only a small piece and be sure the dry ice has dissolved completely before drinking. Never allow your skin to come in contact with dry ice.
