All combined together to make the perfect easy martini for this year’s Halloween party. It’s fun, spooky, and completely delicious!

I told you guys I was getting into the Halloween season this year and I wasn’t messing around. This drink is all things spooky, fun, and deliciously perfect for the autumn season too.

Today marks the kick off of many Cocktail Saturdays to come. From now through Christmas we’ll have a new cocktail every Saturday…which is a lot of new drinks!

I’m so excited, you guys know how much I love these cocktail posts. I really do have a lot of fun putting them together.

As always, these posts will be very short and sweet. Just a paragraph or two and then the recipe! So with that…

Here are the details

The base of the recipe is made up of four ingredients, spiced apple cider, pomegranate juice, vodka, and maple.

The drink itself is a blood-red color, but I made my cocktails glisten with some edible gold glitter. This is optional, but adds a very magical touch to the drink!

  1. Hi there – do you recommend regular vodka or an apple vodka? I know it’s listed for both, but curious which is better. Going to try this out this weekend! Looks beautiful.

  2. This sounds delicious! I am looking for a good cocktail for Thanksgiving – do you think this would be good to prepare ahead in a large batch?

  3. 5 stars
    This is so beautiful. I made it twice this past weekend- once with my daughter on our “cooking day” (while watching Hocus Pocus); and the other time for my friend playing mahjong. It is so beautiful with the gold edible glitter. Makes it look like a boiling cauldron! Definitely a keeper recipe!
