After pissing off an insecure food blogger, I decided to make my own drink recipe to kick off the return of Friday Fright Cocktails.
This year has been wacky. Since 2020 and Covid-19 teamed up to pick on the human race, we’ve had to learn to adapt to fluid situations. Make changes on the fly. Step outside our comfort zones. We’ve also sadly learned that sometimes people absolutely suck, but we need community and Halloween has always been about community. That’s the only reason I share recipes I find around the web in the first place. Our community treats each other right. We know to give credit where credit is due. We know we’re gonna copy each other and nothing will ever be same because we put our own love into it. True Halloween lovers know how to share.
I don’t mind if you share the Cursed People Eater recipe, but it would be great if you link back here. I’m only sorry that I’m not a fancy schmancy food photographer that can offer you better photos. If you drink enough of these, you won’t be able to see straight anyway! 😛
2 oz. Vodka
1 1/2 oz. ginger ale
1/2 oz. cranberry juice (optional)
1/2 oz. blue curacao
1/2 oz. St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
1/2 teaspoon lime juice
a drop of Tabasco (or two)
a dab of Grenadine
1-2 maraschino cherries
crushed ice as needed
Cranberry makes the drink a bit too sweet. I made a version without it and liked it much better. The Tabasco is obviously the wild card here. It’s called a curse, but if you add the right amount, it’s actually a blessing.
Happy Halloween 2020!
