7. Midori Halloween Punch

I love the way the blood oranges (if you can find them this time of year) look in the punch. The melon balls are ingenious, I wouldn't have thought to do that.

This recipe uses a radish to maximize the gross-out factor.

  1. Their Black Widow sounds much more forgiving than the one I'm familiar with. My friend came up with this drink, so called because it's a black shot followed by a red one. And it's a killer.
    1 2oz shot of Jagermeister
    1 2oz shot w/ 1oz Bacardi 151 & 1oz Grenadine
    Take in rapid succession (one for each fang, I'd imagine).

    Recently I have also tried a "Code Blue" (cue the TSOL song).
    1/2 oz Tequila
    1/2 oz Gin
    1/2 oz White Rum
    1/2 oz Vodka
    1/2 oz Blue Curacao
    Shake with ice and pour into a tall glass, topping off with bar sours.
