Jeepers Creepers Martini #SundayFunday
Updated: Oct 15
Today Sue of Palatable Pastime is leading the Sunday Funday group in sharing Halloween drinks and cocktails. She wrote: "Share a drink with us suitable for a Halloween party. Cocktails, Mocktails, Punch, anything goes."
Stacy of Food Lust People Love, Sue of Palatable Pastime, Rebekah of Making Miracles, and Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm coordinate this low-stress group; we only participate when we are inspired. Thanks, again, to Sue for hosting this week. Here's the line-up of our libation creations...
Dark and Stormy Cocktail from A Day in the Life on the Farm
DIY Starbucks Pumpkin Sauce and Pumpkin Spice Latte from Amy's Cooking Adventures
Jeepers Creepers Martini from Culinary Cam (you're here)
Reincarnation Instant Breakfast from Palatable Pastime
Satan's Whiskers from Karen’s Kitchen Stories
Whiskey Sour Mocktail from Sneha’s Recipe
While the fun factor is in the eyeball garnish, I have to admit that the cocktail is pretty darn tasty, too.
makes 1 cocktail
2 ounce gin
1-1/2 ounces syrup from the canned lychees
1 ounce Chartreuse liqueur
Also needed: cocktail shaker, ice cubes
Drain the lychees, reserving the canning syrup for the cocktail. Place a blueberry in the lychee to form the eyeballs, then skewer them to make a pair.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour all the ingredients into the shaker. Shake well and strain into a serving glass.
Serve immediately! Cheers.
To make these non-alcoholic substitute, just use the lychee syrup and sparkling water.
That's a wrap for my Halloween-inspired libation. The group will be back next week and taking a break from the Halloween posts to share Diwali recipes. Stay tuned!
