Red Halloween Drink | Blood Clot Shots

Halloween is one of my all-time favorite-not-really-a-holiday holidays. It’s just fun. We don’t take all of the crazy symbolism to heart. We’re just enjoying it for the fun of it. Nothing more, nothing less. As a kid, I enjoyed the thrill of dressing up in scary or superhero customs and geeking on the fact that I got to spend an evening collecting candy. Can you say kid heaven? But it was more than just the trick or treat outing on Halloween night. It was the build-up! I recall decorating grade-school classrooms in cut-out pumpkins, multi-colored corn cobs, ghouls and witches with black cats. It was festive and more fun than a barrel of monkeys. And now that I am thinking back on it, I want my youth back! Sorry, nostalgia can be a horrible thing at times, no? Anyway, you’re not here to relive my youth with me, are you? Na, I didn’t think so. You’re here for the gross but still wickedly cool Blood-Clot Shots recipe, aren’t you? Thought so. Okay then, I’ll give you what you came for. Let’s get to do it! Below I’ll show you just how you too can make your own, slightly disturbing (but super ‘licious Blood-Clot Shots. Here we go.

Bloodshot Clots | Halloween Drink

Here is what you’re going to need:

1 pint of chicken blood… no, not really. Wink.

Disclaimer: No chickens or other fouls were harmed in the making of this cocktail. Promise. Scout’s honor.

Directions to make a blood clot shots

The directions are really easy to follow, especially if you aren’t going for the pint of chicken blood, ’cause catching a terrified yard bird isn’t as easy as it sounds. Trust.

  1. Take a long white serving platter like the one in the above photo and add several crumpled up Band-Aids.
  2. Now, drip red food coloring all over the serving platter, make small garish puddles, you can even add drops of table syrup to the edges of the puddles or bits of blackened marshmallow to give them that old coagulated blood look we all love.
  3.  Line up your shot glasses on the platter and pour 1 ounce of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Fire Whiskey (depending on how big your shot glasses are).
  4. Pour in 1 ounce of J.K.’s Cuvée Organic Hard Cider.
  5. Next, add drops of red food coloring to give the shot that “is this blood I’m chugging?” look. Looks good so far, you’ll have the vampires salivating!
  6.  Carefully add 3-4 mini-marshmallows or a single regular size marshmallow into each shot glass.
  7. Now comes the fun part. Using the chef’s butane torch caramelize the marshmallows. Be careful not to set the liquor aflame. You may want to stick the marshmallows on the end of a fork and char them instead of risking a fiery booze-fueled marshmallow inferno. Maybe next time.
  8. Serve liberally to all the cool ghosts, goblins and sexy nurses attending your next Halloween Par-Tay.
  9. Enjoy.

Note- if the “blood” look is not dark enough, you can add a few drops of black food coloring to achieve the darker look! 

Be sure to drink responsibly. And never drink and drive!

      I don’t think I can drink anything that looks like that. The ingredients are good, but I think the presentation is a little over the top.

        Thank you. And yes, this is such a fun drink to make for sure…just putting it together is a party all by itself. The Tennessee Fire whiskey has a wonderful cinnamon flavor, and the hard cider smooths everything out… but the cherry on top has got to be the charred marshmallow! Let us know if you make them … and take pictures because it never happened it they’re aren’t any pictures. Tag us on Facebook or Instagram. Enjoy!

      Oh my gosh, that looks disturbingly real. But sounds like it’d taste great. Probably go down a little too easy. And after about seven of them, I’d go down easy also. lol

      I easily get squeamish at the sight of blood, so you can imagine how challenging it would be for me to drink something like this. ~lol~ It does sound wickledly good, though. 🙂

      This is the perfect adult halloween treat. I can’t touch Jack Daniels so I would have to include something else in this visually beautiful recipe.

      Mine looked nothing like that. We’re having a big Halloween part and was looking forward to serving these. I can’t get them red enough. I used 15 drops of red food coloring. And your looked foamy on the top. Please help!!

        Oh no, April! I’m sorry to hear that. Can I ask what type of food coloring you used? I added this to the ingredient list, but we used McCormick Culinary Food Coloring. You can order it here- http://amzn.to/2zL8lP2

        Also, try adding a few drops of black food coloring if you want the darker look. The foaminess you see came from the marshmallow as it was melting. Let me know how that works out and good luck!
