Emily Ellyn is the Retro-Rad home ec teacher you never had, but always wanted!  Just in time for Halloween, Emily created another Easy Ice exclusive recipe for us:  the gruesome, yet tasty, Vampire’s Kiss Martini.

Just as the Iceologists were on Team Emily during her stint on Next Food Network Star, Emily is on Team Easy Ice when she creates cool cocktails especially for us!

Serve this at your Halloween party and you’ll be the coolest vampire’s on the block!

Vampire’s Kiss Martini

Serves 1

Ingredients:

Blood orange and Sugar, for rimming glass

or Strawberry sundae syrup, for rimming glass

1 ounce vodka

2 ounces triple sec

1 ounce freshly squeezed blood orange juice

½ ounce pomegranate juice

Ice

Directions:

  • Run a slice of blood orange around the rim of a chilled martini glass. Dip the rim in sugar and turn until well coated.  Or, rim a martini glass with the strawberry syrup. Drizzle some on the inside of the glass so it drips like blood.
  • Combine all liquid ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously for 15 to 20 seconds, then strain into the rimmed glass.
  • Garnish with candy vampire fangs and serve.  Enjoy – it is as Easy as Ice!
