Halloween Cocktail…Vampire Mist

I don’t care what anyone says…this drink is crazysauce.  Nay…awesomesauce.

I’ve been wanting to do a drink with dry ice for a long time now, so when Dixie Crystals asked me for a spooky cocktail, I knew it was time.

Vampire Mist.


Sweet. Sassy.  Perfect drink for a Halloween party, or really, any party.  I mean – LOOK AT IT.  It’s foggy.  It’s steamy.  Everyone will look sexier holding it.  And that, my friends, is what Halloween is about.  Sexy.

Think about it.  Walmart says so.  Everyone says so.  Sexy nurse. Sexy zombie, sexy cop, sexy robot.  Is there a female costume on sale that doesn’t ooze sexy?  So, we all need this drink.

For reference, you can buy food grade dry ice in most grocery stores.  just ask for it if you don’t see it.  Runs about $5, and you’ll have plenty to use for a huge batch of drinks.  Just be careful – DO NOT TOUCH IT.  It’ll burn your skin clean off.  And don’t drink it until it’s melted off and made your drink freezing cold.  Just be safe.  Use your brain, Sexy Vampire.
