Why I Love The Frankenstein Drink
This cocktail is fast becoming one of my favorites for Halloween, and for good reason.
The bright green color that gives the drink its name is perfect for wowing guests at Halloween and reminds me of Polyjuice from Harry Potter or a real witches brew.
This is also a really easy drink to make, requiring four ingredients and little prep work.
What is in this Green Halloween Cocktail?
First of all, let’s be clear that the Frankenstein Drink is a cocktail that contains alcohol (vodka and Blue Curacao).
It is definitely not a kid-friendly Halloween drink. .
The alcoholic version of the Witches Brew Punch contains the following:
- Crystal Head Vodka (or other Vodka of your choice)
- Pineapple juice
- Blue Curacao
- Orange Juice
If you haven’t heard of Crystal Head vodka then you are in for a treat.
The neat thing about this vodka is the bottle, of course.
It is a skull head so absolutely perfect for Halloween as it doubles as a cool decoration for your bar or table.
What is Blue Curacao?
Blue Curacao mixed with fruit juices is what gives this drink its beautiful green color.
It is a liqueur made with the dried peel of the bitter orange laraha, a citrus fruit, grown on the Dutch island of Curaçao.
What Can You Use Instead Of Blue Curacao?
If you want the alcoholic content but don’t have any Blue Curacao, you can use a citrus liqueur such as Triple Sec and add a few drops of blue food coloring to your drink.
