Halloween Cocktails

It’s that time of year again, when the ghosts, witches and vampires come out to
play! When you’re out looking for that killer costume don’t forget to stock up on Midori. Its distinctive emerald green colour makes it the perfect choice for Halloween, and with its refreshing taste it’s easy to mix with spirits, juices and
mixers for some special spooky cocktails. Why not try Halloween Punch – perfect for parties, or Trick or Treat a ghoulishly good ‘shotail’?

Halloween Punch

1 part Midori
1 ½ parts Skyy Orange Vodka
1 ¼ parts Sweet and Sour Mix
15 squeezed Orange Wedges
Melon balls, red orange slices and kiwi slices to garnish

Pour ingredients in order listed into a pitcher filled with cubed ice. Shake and stir for about 5 seconds. Strain from pitcher into punch bowl. Garnish with melon balls, red oranges and kiwi for a frightfully fabulous Halloween party centrepiece!

Trick or Treat

1 part Passione Nera black sambuca
1 part Midori

To make this devilishly simple ‘shotail’ pour the ingredients carefully into a shot glass to keep the green and black layers separate, and enjoy the cauldron of liquorice and melon flavours!

Midori was conceived by the international award-winning Suntory group in 1978. Its premium production partners a honeydew melon liqueur base with a clear grain spirit. Midori is stocked by Asda, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s and is available in 70cl and 50cl sizes. Guide retail price is £9.34 to £14.85.
