Friday Fright Nightcaps – Monster Martini

The Monster Martini is how you keep it classy and spooky on Halloween night.

Below is a simple recipe, but I’ve seen different variations, and in particular, different garnishes, that can really bring out theme you’re trying to convey. Don’t be afraid to get creative and experiment a little. Dr. Frankenstein would approve.

Drop in a tiny piece of dry ice for a spookier presentation, but, be careful. Dry ice bites!
