Trick-or-Treat Candy Bar Cocktails and Shots
Tootsie Roll Shot
2/3 ounce Three Olives Chocolate Vodka
1/3 ounce Amaretto
Drizzle of Chocolate Syrup
Combine vodka and amaretto in cocktail shaker with ice. Shake to blend and chill. Strain into shot glass. Drizzle chocolate syrup over the top.
I ounce 100% Pomegranate Juice
1-1/4 ounce Dark Crème de Cacao
1-1/2 ounce Black Cherry Vodka
Combine liquids in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until well chilled. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Roll skewered maraschino cherries on a cocktail pick and lay across martini glass as garnish.
1 ounce Coconut Cream
1 ounce Stirrings Tangerini Mixer
1 ounce Banana Liqueur
1/2 ounce Silver Rum
Chill ingredients prior to use. Layer each ingredient into a chilled cocktail glass one on top of each other to create look of candy corn. Layer ingredients by slowly pouring liquids over the back of a bar spoon in the order given.
The Stirrings Tangerini Mixer is a little difficult to come by so there are a few options for the Trick-or-Tini cocktail:
Apparently Ocean Spray makes a no sugar added Citrus Tangerine Orange juice. There is also a Noble brand tangerine juice that came up in search. Either of those might work as a substitution. You could also try a combination of Orange Juice with splash of Pineapple Juice or Orange Juice with mix of syrup from a can of tangerine fruit.
Another Candy Corn Martini recipe to try:
1 ounce Vanilla Vodka (substitute Cake or Whipped Vodka)
1/2 ounce Butterscotch Schnapps
1-1/2 to 2 ounces Orange Juice
Shake with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. (You might even try a small splash of pineapple juice in this.)
