Halloween Bloody Mimosas Inspo
I absolutely love Halloween. It is one of my favorite holidays. I could celebrate it all year if I could. There is something about the amazing crisp air, the spooky thrill of everything and the candy! Plus, you can truly be whatever you wish to be.
I was racking my brain of the perfect, easy drink to make for Halloween. So many are played out, and it is tough to be original on here due to the all the amazing talents.
One thing I love is a fancy rim. Sugar and spice rims, spicy salty rim... the list could go on. The last rim I did was a sugar and spice on on my mezcal apple margs, which you could find here.
For Halloween, I needed to take it one more step. I needed to add blood. A beautiful bloody drip, what is better? I actually LOVE making fake blood and two years ago I covered my body with it!
Therefore, I knew the bloody rim would be perfect.. but what to show it off? A bloody mimosa!
Halloween Bloody Mimosa Ingredients
Prosecco or Champagne. Oh my gosh, the debate about these two! For some reason, I gravitate to Prosecco. Maybe because it is Italian and so is Gabe, who usually buys the booze. Whichever you prefer, use it!
Grenadine. Who did not love this growing up? Shirly Temples were the best sugar filled drink ever. I used Rose's brand, but you can make your own too! Any brand will work.
Corn Syrup. I know, not a popular thing, but this really give it the blood like vibe. Thick and drippy!
Red Food Dye. This gives it the great color! I tried to do this with cherry juice and grenadine but neither worked! You need the food dye to the corn syrup stays thick!
So, let's make this drink!
To make the blood, you simply mix the red dye and corn syrup in a shallow bowl. Mix until it is completely combined. It should be thick.
Next, dip your champagne glass inside the bowl and make sure you get a lot on the edges. This is going to get messy, but it is worth it. Place your glasses down, pour some champagne or prosecco in them. Then, gently place the grenadine in by turning a spoon upside down and pouring it on top of it. This will allow the syrup to go to the bottom of the glass.
You are done! Do not place this anywhere you are scared may stain, so keeping it on a coaster or a plate is key.
Halloween Bloody Mimosas
- 1 bottle prosecco
- 4 tsp grenadine
- 3 tbsp corn syrup
- 1 tsp red dye
- Place corn syrup and dye in a shallow bowl and mix.
- Dip the rim of your champagne glasses into the bowl in order to fully get the “blood” onto the rim. You may need to twist a little!
- Pour your prosecco or champagne into your champagne glass.
- Next, pour in your grenadine by placing a spoon upside down towards the inside edge of the glass. Then, pour the grenadine on top of the upside spoon. This will ensure it travels to the bottom and not mix in. See pic above.
