3 Creepy Cocktails: The Corpse Bride, The Hoodoo, and The Akasha

October 28, 2015

I’m so excited I could scream!!!! We are so close to Halloween? What are you guys dressing up as this year? Comment and let me know! Better yet tag me in your Halloween costumes instagrams! @NorthDixieKitchen. I want to see everyone’s trickery!!

So, if you read my last post about Black Velvet Cake you might have caught that I’m having a birthday party the weekend of Halloween. Y’all alcohol has been on my brain. I’m dealing with the age old questions of 20-somethings, “Is this a BYOB? Do I provide some kind of cute punch? Do I make my inner posse fancy drinks before the real party begins?” These questions are yet to be answered, but either way I will most definitely be drinking one of these cocktail creations.

You can’t have Halloween with some kind of tribute to one of the spookiest movie makers of our time, Tim Burton. This drink is a shout out to Burton’s 2005 movie.




3 tbsp gin

1 tbsp St. Germain

1 oz lemon juice

splash of Curacao

1 egg white, shaken

1. Shake ice, gin, st. germain, lemon juice and curacao. Pour in glass.

2. Shake egg whites separately (48 times). Pour on top.

If you haven’t seen this movie, it might just be the perfect thing to watch while passing out candy… while drinking this beautiful blue creation.


If egg white isn’t your thing, don’t worry I totally get it. Maybe you need a bit of zing to get you through this Halloweekend! Well I’ve got a delicious play on the White Russian, that might just make your day. Added note: this tastes like chocolate milk.  All hail the pure bliss of chocolate perfection!

The Hoodoo

2 oz coffee liqueur

2 oz stout beer

whole milk

1 large round ice cream

1. Mix and enjoy!

If you follow me on the regular, you might know that I’m actually a bit allergic to coffee. I took the risk and drank a bit of this. Y’all I was possessed by this drink! Let me tell you it’s legit. You’ll thank me next time you’re drinking this magical brew.

And what would Halloween be without a nod to a classic, but always beautiful, spook, Akasha the Vampire. If you aren’t familiar with Anne Rice (where have you been?), Akasha is known as the “Queen of the Damned”. She is the first vampire created in the famous Anne Rice Vampire series. *Side note: Aaliyah played Akasha in the 2002 film, Queen of the Damned – that means this vamp has serious class!*

This cocktail is a spin a classic, The Cosmopolitan. Instead of the typical cranberry juice, we use Pomm juice to get that beautiful, blood red color.

pomegranate seeds

2. For garnish mix canola oil and food dye and dip rim of glass along the red oil. Add a few pomegranate seeds.
