Shimmery Liqueur

You can make homemade shimmery liqueur in any color you desire. Serve in a highball glass, or as a shot.

GREEN – Creme de Menthe / Mint shimmery liqueur (mint-infused vodka + sugar syrup)

BLUE – Butterfly Pea infused Vodka (or Gin) liqueur. I used gin for this because the butterfly pea doesn’t turn purple in this liqueur.

PURPLE – Blackberry shimmery liqueur (blackberry infused vodka + sugar syrup) – this is the closest to the color (not flavor) of purple Viniq

RED – Strawberry shimmery liqueur (strawberry-infused vodka + sugar syrup)

ORANGE – Orange shimmery liqueur (orange-infused vodka + sugar syrup)

YELLOW/GOLD – Pineapple shimmery Liqueur (Pineapple + Rum) You can use Vodka instead of Rum as well, but this liqueur tastes AMAZING especially a cocktail made with this liqueur + coconut water!

Halloween Pumpkin Punch

Ingredients:

For the punch

750 ml bottle of spiced rum

1 cup of orange juice

1 cup lemon juice

1 cup spiced syrup

1/2 cup pumpkin puree

2 1/2 cups sparkling water

cinnamon sticks (for garnish)

dry ice (for decorating, optional)

large pumpkin or punchbowl

For the spiced syrup

1/2 cup demerara sugar

1/2 cup water

6 whole cloves

6 allspice berries

1 cinnamon stick (broken into pieces)

1-star anise pod

6 white peppercorns

1/2 nutmeg (cracked)

Instructions:

For the spiced syrup

Add the spices to a small saucepan over medium heat. Shake the spices back and forth so that they do not burn.

As soon as the spices become toasty and aromatic add the water and sugar. Stir continuously to dissolve the sugar. Bring to a simmer and turn the heat to low. Let simmer for 10 minutes, remove from heat, and strain through a fine-mesh strainer.

cool to room temperature before using.

For the punch

In a large bowl, add the spiced rum, orange juice, lemon juice, spiced syrup and pumpkin puree. Stir to combine.

Once combined, pour the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer into a large pitcher and chill until ready to serve.

Meanwhile, place a large bowl into your hollowed pumpkin. Be sure your bowl is safe to handle dry ice. I used a metal bowl. Next, use tongs to fill the bottom of the bowl with dry ice, and cover with a slightly smaller bowl. This bowl will hold your punch. Again, make sure both bowls are safe for dry ice. Certain materials will shatter when exposed to dry ice.

Pour the mixture into the punchbowl. Add the sparkling water and stir to combine.

Now for the fun part. Carefully pour hot water into the bottom bowl so that it contacts the dry ice, thus activating the vapors.

Guests can ladle the punch into their glasses and garnish with a cinnamon stick. Remember to stir it as you serve, as the ingredients will naturally separate over time.

The drink should be a really pretty green color. Pour the cranberry juice on top of the drink. You can let the juice float or stir it in for a creepy color change.

1 jigger apple brandy or apple vodka chilled

1 tsp grenadine

2 jiggers (or to top up) Homemade Blackberry Shimmery Liqueur 

Powdered dry ice optional

Martini glass to serve

Pour 1 tsp of grenadine syrup, about an inch from the surface of the drink – the grenadine should sink to the bottom, creating a “bleeding” effect.
