Ingredients

  • 50ml gin
  • 15ml dry vermouth
  • 2 drops homemade fake blood (dissolve 7g of caster sugar into 44g of red liquid food colouring)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Add the gin and vermouth to a cocktail tin filled with ice and stir to dilute. Double strain into a chilled small coupette glass and garnish with 2 drops of the fake blood.

RECIPE TIPS
Using up your fake blood
The remaining “fake blood” can be used for other cocktails or cake decorating, like our Halloween slash cake. It will keep for a week in the fridge, so good for bigger parties and events.  If you need smaller quantities, halve the fake blood quantities or just use a few drops of red food colouring on its own.
ABOUT THIS RECIPE
