Spooky Rum Punch

Halloween is just around the corner and we seem to get a lot of requests for rum themed Halloween cocktails. We ran across this one recently and set out to give it a try. After a bit of searching, were able to find the black sanding sugar, but if you have trouble finding it, you can easily make your own using this recipe. The black licorice strings were harder to find, and although a black licorice spider looks really cool (and is edible!) we opted for a plastic one that we dangled from a bamboo pick.

Optionally, you can float some dark rum on the top, which sounds cool, but ours just kept blending with the rest of the cocktail, so we ended up just adding 2 oz. of gold rum and foregoing the dark rum floater.

Spooky Rum Punch
(makes one)

2 oz. light or gold rum
1 lime wedge
2 tbsp. black sanding sugar
.5 tbsp. fresh lime juice
2 – 3 tbsp. simple syrup to taste
1/4 c. pomegranate juice

Optional
Black string licorice to make spider
1 oz. dark rum for a floater

Pour the black sanding sugar on a flat plate. Rub the lime wedge on the rim of a cocktail glass, then dip in the black sugar to coat. In a cocktail shaker, add ice, light rum, lime juice, simple syrup and pomegranate juice. Shake about 30 seconds until chilled, then pour into the sugar rimmed glass over ice.

Optional
Leave room at the top. Gently pour the dark rum on the top so that it floats. Garnish with a licorice or plastic spider. Mmmm…spooky AND  good!

The Slimer

Still looking for a Halloween cocktail that you can serve when you have friends for dinner…er…I mean have friends over for dinner? (insert evil laugh…) You might enjoy this one called The Slimer. Now for those of  you who saw the original Ghostbusters movie from 1984, you probably will recall the cute little green thing made of ectoplasm who left a trail of slime everywhere he went. Anyway – this cocktail may be green, but it ain’t too slimy – thank goodness.

So – mix yourself up a batch this Halloween and prepare to be slimed (or to perhaps get slimed if you drink too many?)

Slimer-copyright-(600)-O
The Slimer
(makes one)

2 oz. light rum
Green soda or energy drink (we used Mountain Dew)
Eyeballs (frozen grapes – peeled, if you want)

Shake the rum and green soda or energy drink with ice and strain into a glass over  Eyeballs (frozen grapes).

This can easily be made in larger quantities and served from a punch bowl.
