This Drunk in the Graveyard Martini is an adult play on a kid classic. Inspired by the dirt pie we used to eat, this graveyard martini is spooky, rich with dark chocolate and very boo-zy! Perfect for a terror-ific night in, or an adult Halloween party!
There is nothing better than spooky season! I live for this time of the year. The horror and gore. It is like a twisted Christmas that everyone is celebrating.
I enjoy creating terrifying recipes for this time of the year. My personal favorite so far was my simple, under 30 minute vampire donuts (click here for the recipe!). I am not a creative person, but for some reason, I can get very creative during this time of the year.
Despite being creative, it is extremely hard to be unique during Halloween. It seems like any idea I think of, it has already been done. So, I reallly needed to get creative for this one. I looked to Halloween desserts as inspiration, and what better dessert to turn to than dirt pie (if you are looking for a vegan dirt pie recipe, that is not alcoholic, click here).
Making the Drink
This drink is very simple to make! The rim is dipped in dark chocolate then dipped into crushed oreos! So much yum.
The drink itself has dark chocolate, triple sec, Bailey's Almande and chocolate vodka. The triple sec adds a nice hint of citrus that balances the bitterness of the vodka, but does not overpower the drink. You heat the chocolate, then place all the ingredients in a shaker and shake!
I used a sugar cookie and vegan gummy worms as garnishes! My sugar cookie recipe will be posted within the next few days, and I will update this post when it does! If you would like it right now, please email me at [email protected], and I will directly send you the recipe.

- Take a spoon and drizzle some of the melted chocolate into the martini glass for a drizzle design. Option to place martini in the fridge for 5 minutes to allow chocolate to harden.
