The new Blood Shot cocktails.

Last year for the Halloween party we created Jello shots in actual syringes to make it look like drawn blood. This year I’m looking for a bit less mess and more of a classic feel over the new “Saw” style. Enter the new Blood Shots.

They look great and are super easy to produce.

1 1/2 cups fresh blood-orange juice (from 7 to 8 blood oranges), chilled
6 tablespoons Solerno or other blood-orange liqueur

Should be rather obvious but it is extremely simple. Combine blood-orange juice and liqueur in a large pitcher. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Pour into test tubes or small glasses.

I think this will work better than last year because it is more “shot like” and easier to consume.
