Nothing screams ewww like something floating in your drink! These delightfully disgusting bloody brain shooters are really fun for your Halloween party and pretty simple to make… just don’t stir! They taste a bit funky going down… a bit slippery and slimy, but definitely tasty… yes, I had more than one 🙂 The trick is to use a bit wider shot glass than normal to make sure you get the look just right. Try some other creative Halloween cocktail recipes for your party like the crazy eye martini or mummys hand punch for some additional fun.
1 1/4 oz. Strawberry vodka
1/8 oz. Rose’s lime juice
3/4 oz. Bailey’s Irish Cream
Splash of grenadine
Chill vodka for a nice smooth finish. Then add vodka and lime juice to a shaker, shake and strain into a shot glass. Using a straw submerge it into a bottle of Bailey’s Irish Cream. Place your finger on top of the straw to hold the Bailey’s in it and remove the straw. Dip the Baily’s filled straw tip into the vodka and slowly release your top finger. The Bailey’s will curdle a little bit due to the lime juice and you should be able to make strands of Bailey’s.
Repeat the straw/Bailey’s process to build a “brain” in the shot glass. Add a splash of grenadine to the concoction to add the ‘blood’ to the mix. Drink it down as shot.
