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.
