Delicious Vampire Inspired Cocktails

Looking for some delicious vampire cocktails? Well have I got some great cocktails for you to choose from - plenty of bloody drinks, but absolutely NO garlic martinis allowed!

Vampires are really hot right now thanks to Twilight, True Blood and the Vampire Diaries being so popular. This means that it's not just Halloween that has everyone reaching for a vampire cocktail you can have them at Vampire Diaries or True Blood parties or even serve the non-alcoholic vampire cocktails at teen birthday parties where they're bound to be a hit.

Vampire Cocktails

Vampire Martini

1 part vodka

1 part strawberry liqueur

1 part lime juice

1 part cranberry juice

Pour all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into a cocktail glass to serve.

Bloody Vampire Cocktail

1 part rum

1 part cherry kool aid

Pour both of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into a highball glass to serve.

Vampire's Delight

2 oz rum

1 banana

2 scoops vanilla ice cream

grenadine

combine the rum, banana and ice cream in a blender. Swirl the grenadine around in two champagne flutes so that it coats the inside and pour the banana mixture into the glasses.

Let's get this party started.....the Vampires are already trying to get in!!!

Bloody Glasses!

For a really cool effect you could try rimming your cocktail glasses with blood...

....now I don't mean real blood you just want to get the effect! This is guaranteed to impress your guests.

You will need

1 cup sugar

½ cup Karo Syrup

½ cup water

red food coloring

What to do

Combine sugar, syrup and water and cook without stirring to hard crack stage (300oF).

Add food coloring

Turn down the heat (you need to still keep the mixture hot while dunking the glasses) and dunk the top of the glass into the mixture while it is still hot

Flip glass right way up to cool and it will naturally cause some drips......just like real blood.

This method can be used for any glasses; but I wouldn't recommend it for plastic glassware!

Warning - It is difficult to clean this off of your glasses as it is basically a hard candy coating so soak it in hot soapy water for a little bit before washing. Alternatively do as I do and leave it soaking overnight - comes off quite easily the following morning that way.

More Vampire Cocktail Recipes

The Albino Vampire Cocktail

1 jigger white creme de cacao

1 jigger vanilla vodka

1 jigger Lady Godiva white chocolate liqueur

Chambord raspberry liqueur

Layer the first three ingredients into a martini glass in the listed order and then finally drop in a dollop of Chambord. Do not mix or stir, the Chambord will naturally sink to the bottom.

This fantastic recipe is courtesy of Juno Books.

Vampire Cocktail

1 ½ oz vodka

½ oz black raspberry liqueur

cranberry juice

Pour the vodka and black raspberry liqueur into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into an old fashioned glass and top up with cranberry juice.

Vampire Juice

2 oz lime flavored vodka

4 oz tomato juice

½ tsp fresh horseradish

splash of Tabasco sauce

Build the ingredients into a highball glass and stir well. I prefer to serve this without ice as the tomato juice ensures the cocktail is quite a thick blood like consistency, but this is entirely up to you.

Bloody Cocktails

Bloody Mary

1 1/2 oz vodka

1/2 cup tomato juice

2 tsp lemon juice

Worcestershire and Tabasco sauces to taste.

Pour all of the ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into a highball glass to serve.

Bloody Maria

1 1/2 oz tequila

a dash of Worcestershire sauce

a dash of Tabasco sauce

a dash of celery salt

tomato juice

Build these ingredients up in a tall glass in that order and gently stir.

Blood Daiquiri

1 part rum

1/2 part strawberry liqueur

1/2 part lemon juice

4 ripe strawberries

1 cup vanilla ice cream

Place into a blender and mix until well blended. Serve in a cocktail glass.

Virgin Vampires?

Non-Alcoholic Vampire Cocktails

If you have any Vampires that can't drink then you need to provide refreshments for them too.

Hunter's Blood

3/4 glass milk

1/2 cup ice cream

4-6 drops red food coloring

Pop all of the ingredients into a blender and blitz until smooth. Serve in a highball glass.

Virgin's Blood

4 shots tomato juice

6 drops Tabasco sauce

1 pinch celery salt

1/2 shot lemon juice
