We don't actually celebrate Halloween in Australia, but I was reading random articles on Instructables the other day and I stumbled across Lmnopeas' Vampire-Rimmed Cocktail Glasses
and thought "That would be perfect for serving Blood and Fingernails Cocktails in." So, I flicked through my recipe books until I found the original recipe, which had tomato juice and flaked almonds, not what I'd call a cocktail, especially since I don't even like tomatoes, so I flicked through one of my other books and, eventually, found this one, or something similar. The recipe was simple enough, but I made some modifications anyway.
So, here it is, after about half an hour or so of work, this is my Ghastly Blood and Fingernails cocktail. It's perfect as a novelty drink for Halloween parties, especially when served in the Vampire Glasses, alongside Caitlinsdad's Finger Food
, or as a refreshing drink in the middle of summer.
