Rotten Orange

Here is a fun layered shot that you can serve your Halloween guests.  I just think that black vodka makes these Halloween cocktails look amazing!

I'm not sure about all of you, but this house is TOTALLY getting into the Halloween spirit. 

Our oldest daughter has known that she wants to be a witch for Halloween since July and our youngest daughter just got a mermaid costume at Costco the other day.  

One costume down, hopefully we can borrow a witch costume and then we just need the boys to decide if they are going to dress up this year or not.  

My husband and boys want to make a little "Haunted House" this year for the kids to walk through to get their candy on Halloween night.  They say it will be a work in progress where they add a little to it every year.  

Guess that means that the girls and I will hit the street going door to door for treats.

If you missed it.....I BOUGHT A BOTTLE OF BLACK VODKA!!  

Last year I saw bottles of black vodka at our local BevMo and never bought one.  

This year I was not going to make that mistake!  

I am excited to make some cocktails for you all with my black vodka.  

I think they layered ones look pretty cool.  This shooter made me do they squinchy face dance because I really tasted the vodka.....and if you didn't know, I'm not big on taking a straight shot of something.........unless it's Fireball......and it's chilled, then it's not as bad.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here is my recipe for a Rotten Orange:

  • 1 ounce black vodka
  • 1 ounce orange juice

I rimmed a shot glass with orange sprinkles to make it more festive.  In a shot glass pour in the orange juice.  Next layer the black vodka on top and you are done!

Here is to my very first Halloween cocktail of the season!  More to come......
