Vampire

Halloween Costume Cocktails  Vampire's Kiss

Vampire’s Kiss
Ingredients:
• 1 ½ ounces Grey Goose Vodka

• ½ ounce Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice
• ½ ounce fresh lemon juice
• ½ ounce grenadine
• Granulated sugar and additional grenadine, for the sugar rim (optional)
• 1 small dry ice cube, optional

Directions:
Place granulated sugar in a single layer on one plate. On another plate, add some grenadine. Spin the rim of the glass in the grenadine until it coats the entire rim. Then dip the glass rim into the plate with the sugar to coat it. Add the vodka, Chambord, cranberry juice, lemon juice, and grenadine to a cocktail shaker. Add 2 handfuls regular ice cubes and shake until cold. Strain the drink into the prepared glass. Using tongs (do not touch the dry ice!), add a 1/2-inch to 1-inch chunk of dry ice to the glass, which will sink to the bottom and immediately make a smoking effect. The ice cube will disappear in about 5 minutes. Do not drink the dry ice! Wait until the cube disappears before enjoying your drink (or you can take sips with the dry ice in the bottom).
