Halloween cocktail : Black Widow Venom

What’s a party without a cocktail? I have no idea… because my parties always have them 🙂 So it’s appropriate that a Halloween party needs a Halloween cocktail. For parties, I either make pitchers of drink or serve shots – either is an easy way to entertain a crowd because either can be made before hand, so you can be enjoying the party and not stuck behind the bar. This spooky Halloween cocktail – Black Widow Venom – is perfect for either way you want to make it. And with only two simple ingredients, even if you run out you can whip up a batch in no time flat.

Halloween Cocktail : Black Widow Venom


  • Whipped Cream Vodka
  • Grenadine


  • In a pitcher (or a glass liquid measuring cup), mix together 3 parts Whipped Cream Vodka to one part Grenadine. To keep the ratio easy, that’s 3/4 cup vodka to 1/4 cup grenadine. That’s it.
  • Yes, I tried other flavors of vodka, but whipped cream really was the best. It gives it sort of a cherries and cream flavor that is yummy enough for a shot or to sip from a martini glass.

Want to get a little more creative? Gather up a bunch of thrift store candelabras and paint them black to hold the vials of shots. I found that the type of bottles I used would only fit if I removed the metal candle cup, so keep that in mind if your glass bottles won’t quite fit.
