Can you tell I have been into layered cocktails and shooters lately? I just love the way they look, I can't help myself.
Tomorrow will be here before we know it and along with it will come October. The first of October is the day that we usually start decorating for Halloween around here. I have to admit.....we already started. I don't know.......something about how fast this year is flying by makes me want to start everything early before I miss it. Which is totally fine with me, that way I get to look at our decorations for a longer time.
Today I wanted to make another fun layered Halloween cocktail so I grabbed these three items and started testing out my layers. I honestly thought that the Midori would float on top of the orange juice......guess I was wrong. It doesn't matter, I think it still looks cool. It tastes pretty darn cool too. I was afraid that I would get a good shot of the vodka right off the top and that it would make me not want to drink the rest.......wrong again. Sure I tasted it, but it was good! I got a little mix of some of the stuff underneath it and that first sip went down pretty smooth. As did the rest of the sips.
I think my creation would be a fun cocktail to serve at a Halloween party. You could even have a few of these cocktails layered and ready for your guests as they arrive.
Here is my recipe for a Swampy Floor:
- 1 ounce melon liqueur
- 2 ounces orange juice
- 1 ounce black vodka
In a cocktail glass filled 3/4 with ice, pour in the melon liqueur. Next layer the orange juice on top of that. Finally layer the black vodka and enjoy!
Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to tomorrow starting the last fourth of the year!
