I had some fun this past weekend experimenting with Hound Black Vodka for Halloween cocktails. I find it tastes just like normal vodka but is special for the season because of its colour. The best results came when I added the black vodka separately to make layers. This made an awesome ghoulish style for serving guests this Halloween.
I gave this cocktail it’s name from it’s bright green colour and block of black across the top. The Apple Sour Puss Schnapps give this cocktail a taste of the season.
1oz Apple Sour Puss 1/2 oz Blue Curacao 1oz Hound Black Vodka 3oz Orange Juice 2oz Ginger-ale Ice
-Fill glass with ice.
-Pour Sour Puss, Blue Curacao, Orange Juice and Ginger-ale over ice. Stir.
-The cocktail should be bright green at this point. If not, add more blue curacao until desired lime green colour is achieved.
-Slowly pour Hound Black Vodka into the glass. Make sure the pour is slow and gentle so that the vodka sits on top of the drink and does not mix with the other contents.
-Serve and Enjoy!
