Hello Halloweenies!

Have I got a treat for you today! And oh, what a treat it is! A treat of the sweetest kind, if you ask me.

It all started when I received an e mail from one of our Halloweenies, Laney.

And Laney was asking for ideas for a signature cocktail to serve at her upcoming costume fund-raiser event. Laney isn't much of a drinker, but was looking for something not too high in alcohol content with a little kick, that her guests would enjoy.

So, I summoned Mr. Edmond.... who has served many a cocktail at The Manor, and asked for his expert opinion. Well sure enough, he came though with a potion recipe that is sure to be a favorite.

It's the Voodootini.

You'll need a martini glass, shot glass, shaker or tall glass, some black licorice-infused vodka, black cherry or black raspberry soda, and some black raspberry liqueur.

Here's what you'll do....

Fill your martini glass with ice.
In a shaker or glass, mix 1 shot black cherry soda, 1/2 shot licorice infused vodka, splash black raspberry liqueur.

Stir or shake well.
Pour over ice in martini glass.

* You can add as much vodka or raspberry liqueur to suit your taste. I wouldn't do more than a full shot of each.... and remember, this is particular recipe is for GROWN UPS ONLY!
