Whether you’re serving these Halloween cocktails to just a few people, or to a crowd, they’re always a visual hit. You can mix up a single cocktail or make a large batch to pour quickly at a party.

The main ingredient in this cocktail is the raspberry liqueur. I use Chambord, but you can use any brand you want. It’s naturally a dark red color, but adding a drop of purple food coloring creates the lovely purple color in this cocktail.

Use any vodka you like. I personally use Grey Goose. And finally, you’ll also need fresh squeezed lime juice. I always strain it through a fine mesh sieve because the drink needs to be very clear, without any lime juice pulp.

Finally, for the best presentation, you’ll want to add a purple rim salt to the glass. I recommend using a martini glass. The long stem adds to the spookiness. You can purchase purple rim sugar from Amazon.

It’s also possible to make it yourself at home with a bit of purple food coloring. It works best to wet the rim of the glass with the food coloring. I mix it with a little bit of honey or agave syrup to make it sticky. Then add regular sugar, which will turn purple as it soaks up the coloring.
