Halloween cocktail ideas, how to make cocktails with dry ice - tequila cocktails - My Style Vita @mystylevita

Halloween is hands down my least favorite holiday. I  know, I said it. Some people absolutely love it and enjoy the whole getting dressed up and kitschy decorations. But for me, not so much. I will say, this cocktail may change things for me. I don’t mind the idea of a Halloween cocktail one bit and this super simple, yet dramatic one has me a little excited for the upcoming gory holiday. And yes, simple, I promise!

For some reason as adults, Halloween has turned into this complete shit show of a night of drunken messes and horrible costumes. The celebrations don’t even happen on the 31st as they should usually because you gotta #ADULT and get your butt to work. It’s embarrassing if you ask me, so I’ve never really been about it as a post college grad. I will say, I was pretty stoked when my girlfriend asked me last night if I wanted to go trick or treating with her and her almost one year old kiddo. Now that to me is Halloween. I can’t wait to go door to door and see the excitement in all the kids faces while they get candy (hoping I get candy too right?). It’ll probably be the best Halloween to date.

Back to the cocktail, this drink only has three ingredients and the dramatic fog effect is incredibly easy, it’s just a chunk of dry ice! To make this cocktail, I combined 1.5 oz of tequila, Herradura silver to be exact, 2 oz of pomegranate juice for that deep rich red color and a few dashes of bitters to cut the sweetness. Shake it all up in a shaker and pour into a fun glass. Plop a small chunk of dry ice into the glass for a fun effect.  If you’re not a tequila fan (which I just won’t ever understand) you can definitely swap this out for any clear liquor. But I highly recommend giving Herradura a try as it’s a very smooth, easy to drink high quality tequila. Plus, I believe it mixes better with juices and such as it doesn’t have a potent taste like vodka can.
