#DOTW: Poison Pumpkin

Halloween is on Tuesday, but most of the adult partying will be done today. If you are still looking for fun ideas for cocktails, here is a quick and easy one, that even last minute should be easy to pull off, besides being immensely flexible. The liquors I used for this cocktail are some of my favorites, but to be honest, any flavored vodka or other clear liquor will do. Pick what you love and mix it with the juices to make a bright orange. If you want an even better color effect, do use red and yellow food coloring. Easy as pie!


What you’ll need:

  • 1 oz Ciroc Coconut (or quality coconut vodka of your choice)
  • 1 oz Malibu
  • 1 oz cranberry juice
  • 1 oz orange and/or pineapple juice
  • optional: food coloring

This recipe is for 4 small shots. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and pour into shot glasses.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
