Ghostini

Ghostini is the perfect ghostly white Halloween cocktail that you can serve your friends that is both delicious and frightening.


Happy last Saturday before Halloween!!  

Today our oldest had a baseball tournament (big surprise, right?) about an hour from our house.  His games were at 9 & 4 and the older team needed a couple more players, so him and one of his friends (another team mate of his) filled in for their 2 games as well.  Yep, you did the math right, four games in one day......oh boy.  

I took the three younger kids to our cities Halloween festival and parade today and it was surprisingly REALLY hot there....yup and it's October.  

We have seemed to have had our summers later in the year for the past few years here.  

I remember it being really warm for trick or treating last year.

It's been a long, hot day so I thought I would find and make a Halloween-y cocktail to enjoy.  

I had actually found tonight's cocktail a while ago and had been looking forward to making it.  Pillsbury's site is where I found this cocktail.  

For me, there's toooo much hazelnut liqueur in this cocktail.  

Definitely too much.  

If that liqueur was toned down a bit (or more) then this cocktail might have some good potential.  If you are someone who loves hazelnut liqueur, then you may want to give this cocktail a try.

Now onto a serious matter..........order pizza or go out to dinner?

Here is the recipe for a Ghostini:

  • 1 1/2 ounces vanilla vodka
  • 1 1/2 ounces whipping cream
  • 3/4 ounce hazelnut liqueur
  • 3/4 ounce white chocolate liqueur

In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass.



Here's to it being Saturday!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Cheers!!

  1. As I do quite like Frangelico, this sounds delicious. I don't have either the cream or the white chocolate - and have no place to put them if I bought them - so I guess I won't be trying it any time soon. I'll be holding onto this recipe to make in the future, though, and hoping it isn't too sweet.

    I'm sure you've long since settled the dinner question, but I vote for pizza. Easier, cheaper, and doesn't involve driving so you are free to have another cocktail. :)

    1. That is exactly what we did. After a long day of baseball for the two of them and a Halloween festival for the four of us, staying in is exactly what we needed! ;)
