Blood Sample

Halloween cocktails shots, blood sample, vanilla vodka, pomegranate juice, plastic syringe


There is only 6 more days until Halloween.  Not sure how that happened, but apparently it did.  My girls are set costume-wise...........and actually have been for a month or so now.  Nothing bloody or gory.  They are actually going to be Mal from Disney's Descendants and Abbey Bominable from Monster High.  Our oldest only dresses up on Halloween night when him and his friends scare trick or treaters in front of the house.  It's actually kind of cool, because him and a good friend of his set up this Haunted Garage/Driveway/Front Yard deal.  It's got fog, body parts, black lights and more.  The two of them, along with some other recruits dress up as all of the scary guys in different movies like Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, Texas Chain Saw Massacre (yes they have an actual chainsaw.....minus the chain), etc. and just walk around.......follow people.......scare the crap out of the older kids.....like I said, it's fun!  Our youngest son (who's 12 and almost as tall as me, gasp) still has no clue of what to be, so we're working on that!

I have seen others do shooters with plastic syringes before and have always wanted to do it too.  I logged onto Amazon and ordered these plastic syringes to make my shots in.  I didn't realize that they came with little caps to cover the end if needed.  I didn't need them because the shot stayed inside just fine.



I just bought a bottle of the POM pomegranate juice at the store.  I just love that they come in these smaller bottles because whenever I buy the bigger ones I always end up having to dump some because they don't get used.  Yes, I am an expiration date queen, just ask my husband......folks.......friends........kids.........yea they all know.


I created an easy to make, especially in a large batch cocktail that looks like blood in a syringe and tastes delicious!

How fun are these to pass out at a Halloween party?  Bummer it's on a Monday this year.  You could make them all up ahead of time, stick them in the fridge and pass them out when needed.......which at our parties is all the time!

Why not try a Blood Sample?  You'll be glad you did!!
