Celebrate Halloween with a Bubbly Vampire’s Kiss Cocktail
The Vampire’s Kiss Cocktail is a super fun and festive cocktail recipe. This fruity vodka cocktail includes raspberry liqueur and sparkling rosé for a frizzy, blood-red Halloween drink.
I love a good festive Halloween cocktail. My favorite thing to do on Halloween is to sip cocktails while handing out candy on the porch. In fact, my friend and I have made it a tradition to make up a batch of cocktails in a large drink dispenser and provide the adults with a “treat” while they walk around the neighborhood.
Vodka: You just need to use your favorite vodka. Nothing special is needed here. Here’s a little tip – if you are a Costco member, the Kirkland vodka is actually quite good and very inexpensive.
Raspberry liqueur: My favorite is Chambord, which is a French raspberry liqueur. And, it’s readily available at any liquor store. I typically keep a bottle on my bar cart – it’s also great to add to prosecco. Sometimes, I also mix it with Bailey’s for a “jelly doughnut” shot.
Cranberry juice: I used cranberry juice cocktail, but I’m sure it would taste great with 100% cranberry juice or any other red-hued juice like pomegranate.
Sparkling rosé wine: If I’m just making this for myself or a couple of people, I like to buy sparkling rosé in a can. They have so many that taste great nowadays, and you don’t have to worry about half of a bottle going flat if you don’t use it all. One of my favorites is Underwood Rosé Bubbles. You can also substitute sparkling water or prosecco. The rosé is fun since it adds to the blood-red color of the cocktail.
How to Make the Vampire’s Kiss Cocktail
You fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add all of the ingredients except for the sparkling wine. Shake it all really well. Then you can strain into an old-fashioned glass with ice or you can strain into a champagne coupe for straight up. Top it with the sparkling rosé wine. I garnished mine with cranberries to go with the red theme, but if you want a spooky garnish you can try propping up some vampire teeth on the side of the glass.
