A Halloween Cocktail For A Scary Good Time

Whether you’re pre-gaming for your favorite spot’s haunted party or keeping it low-key and staying in, Hornitos® Tequila has the recipe for making you a Halloween hero – or headless horseman or whatever role you take on this year! 

Hornitos® Tequila’s mixologist, Christian Sanders of Evelyn Drinkery in NYC, has created a Halloween cocktail that looks as though “blood” is dripping down the sides of the drink. The Instagram-worthy Potion de Muerto will blow your guests’ minds and set the spooky mood for what’s sure to be an epic night. Follow us on Instagram @hornitostequila and share your photo.

The Potion de Muerto is made with Hornitos® Black Barrel®, a super smooth, triple aged, 100% agave tequila uniquely aged to embark distinct and complex whiskey notes.

Potion de Muerto
·         2 parts Hornitos® Black Barrel®
·         ¾ part orange juice
·         ¾ part lemon juice
·         ¾ part chipotle agave *
·         2 dashes orange bitters
·         ½ part beet juice
*Substitute agave nectar for chipotle agave if unavailable.

Preparation: Serve in a tall glass over crushed ice with a beet juice float – the beet juice will slowly float down the glass through the crushed ice, making it look like blood dripping down. Garnish with an orange slice.
