In the holiday tradition of the weekend, I wanted to share a festive drink that will be quite the statement maker in your grossly ghoulish spooky parties. Did you ever think I’d teach you to be a mad scientist? Well, I want to teach you lots of skills, and this one will impress your guests. The chemical reaction from the acidic lime juice with the Irish Cream causes the cream to curdle, creating brain-like curls and strands. Isn’t this the coolest thing? Sharing a fun halloween cocktail….
Bloody Brain Shooter
- 1 1/4 oz. strawberry vodka such as Stoli
- 1/8 oz. Rose’s lime juice
- 3/4 oz. Bailey’s Irish Cream
- splash of grenadine
Chill vodka for better smoothness. Add vodka and lime juice to a shaker; shake, then strain into a shot glass. Using a straw, dip some Bailey’s Irish Cream into the shot. Once you submerge the straw into the Bailey’s, put your finger on top of the straw to hold the Bailey’s in the straw. Dip the straw tip into the vodka and slowly release your top finger. The Bailey’s will curdle a little bit due to the lime juice and you should be able to make strands of Bailey’s.
Repeat the straw/Bailey’s process to build a “brain” in the shot glass. Add a splash of grenadine to the concoction to add the “blood” to the mix. Down the hatch as a shot.
And there you go. Drinking brains. Ok not really. Ok now that’s gross…. ick!

Do you have big plans for the weekend? It is Halloween. Do you get into it like all nuts and crazy or not so much? Another awesome thing about the weekend…. Daylight savings time!
So… something to think about… the one thing we always want more of.. TIME! I have to share this cool thing I stumbled across. I have something similar… It’s an alarm clock.
Now you’ll say, REALLY? Who uses an alarm clock? I just use my phone. Well, when I’m walking across the room or want to look and see what time it is, I can just look up at a glance and see. But here’s why I love this one… the USB ports right on the front. So I can charge my phone right there.
Pretty cool, huh?
Get your clock HERE.
Ok so have a ghoulish weekend, be safe, #drinkresponsibly and enjoy that extra hour of sleep!
Happy weekend lovers!
