A Vampire Cocktail For The Weekend

Yay, the end of another long week! This weekend, why not mix yourself a special Twilight cocktail . . . the Vampire.

To make a Vampire cocktail, you need a highball glass with ice and:
  • 2 1/2 ounces of tomato juice
  • 1 ounce of orange juice (the recipe wants "fresh-squeezed" but Tropicana works, too)
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 shot of tequila
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tbsp chopped onion (the smaller the better)
  • 3 thin pieces of hot pepper (red chili or jalepeno)
  • 1 dash of Worcestershire sauce
Put all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with some ice and shake it vigorously. Add salt to taste, and then strain it into your highball glass.

It's kind of like a Bloody Mary, and the Vampire cocktail is also designed to be used as a hangover cure. Fun for a Halloween drink (my neighbors have orange lights up already) or hey, drink your vampire cocktail just because it's Friday and you can.

Huzzah for the weekend!
