What alcohol is in the Liquid Ghost Cocktail?

 Liquid Ghost Cocktail
This drink packs a punch as there are actually three different alcohols involved!

First, you need plain vodka.

Second of all, we add in Creme de Cacao and white chocolate liqueur for a delicious creamy flavor.

If you don’t have the white chocolate liqueur or want a bit less alcohol, then you can use cream or milk instead. 

I’ve tried it both ways and it tastes great!

How To Make The Liquid Ghost Drink

This is the perfect Halloween cocktail as it is really easy to make and always a hit. 

Here’s how to make it:

First, you will want to rim your glass. 

I used black sanding sugar but you can also use desiccated (shredded) coconut or Halloween sprinkles. 

Just put some simple syrup on a shallow dish and the some sugar on another one. 

Dip the rim of your glass into the syrup and then immediately into the sugar.
