The Ghastly Grape


So I have a little treat for you! Amy from Your Southern Peach is here to share a tasty cocktail for you today that is perfect for Halloween! Amy shares wonderful recipes and cocktails on her blog and is also a contributor to Society Social. I hope you enjoy!

Hi there! I'm Amy and I'm honored to be guest posting for Tiffany today! Tiffany and I began blogging about same time and over the years I've really enjoyed getting to know her via this gorgeous space we refer to as Savor Home. It just so happens we both call Atlanta home, too!


Today I'm literally mixing things up here on Savor Home. When I host large parties, I always like to have a premixed theme cocktail to get the party started. It signals that the bar is open and also takes the pressure off of guests to mix a drink from scratch. As hard as I try to be a great hostess, it's almost impossible to play bartender the entire duration of the party, especially for a larger group. Most of the time I tend to stick to stick to classics when it comes to my cocktails, but Halloween just screams for something a little more daring don't ya think? This Ghastly Grape cocktail is a gorgeous shade that plays nicely with traditional Halloween colors and is absolutely delicious, too! With three simple ingredients, this cocktail makes your Halloween frighteningly festive and fun. 

Here is what you need and what to do (Makes about 3 cups):

1 1/2 cups raspberry flavored vodka
1 cup grape fruit juice
1/2 cup grapefruit juice
Orange slices for garnish

Mix all three ingredients together and chill for at least 1 hour. Serve over ice and garnish with an orange slice! 

Thanks for having me today and please feel free to come say hello at my own personal blog, Your Southern Peach. Three cheers to a ghastly and giddy Halloween!

  3. Hi: Is the second ingredient "grape fruit juice" like a Welchs grape juice and the third ingredient actually grapefuit (like the big yellow fruit)?
