Friday Fright Nightcaps: The Haunted Grey Lady

The last weekend of October is always bittersweet. We’ve been counting down since September (some of us since July) and now, with Halloween less than a day away, there’s a sense of melancholy. I’ve been trying to find a cocktail that express both my jubiliation of the holiday’s arrival and my sadness over the Halloween season coming to end. Somehow, I ended up creating my own variation of the chocolate martini.

Behold, The Haunted Grey Lady, an original drink recipe featuring Kraken Black Roast Coffee Rum.

The Haunted Grey Lady by Halloween Kristy

INGREDIENTS:

2 oz. Bailey’s Irish Cream Liqueur
1 oz. Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
.05 oz. Kraken Black Roast Coffee Rum
.05 oz. Vodka

Optional Garnish:
Chocolate Syrup
White Chocolate Shavings
Whipped Cream

The Haunted Grey Lady with White Chocolate Shavings

You make this drink as strong as you like it. If you want more kick, add 1 oz. of Vodka. If you want more chocolate, add 1 oz. chocolate liqueur or add more chocolate syrup inside the glass. You can even garnish with whipped cream, if that’s your thing.

The Kraken is what gives the drink it’s grey look. You can substitute ingredients with other brands of the liqueurs. I’m sure that’ll work just fine, but I wonder about the color. Please post your pics in Comments section or hit me up on Instagram or Twitter using @HalloweenHaiku9
