sundown cocktail

3 ounces orange juice

1 1/2 ounces light rum
3/4 ounce grenadine
combine o.j. and rum in a hi-ball glass filled with ice. drizzle with grenadine. serve.
this cocktail is two-toned when first poured.  after it sits, the ingredients start to mix together into an intense orange color.  (adapted from {this} recipe.)

bloody cider punch 
2 cups brandy
1/2 cup black currant schnapps
1/8 cup superfine sugar
4 cups apple cider
1 1/2 cups seltzer
pour all the ingredients into a punch bowl and stir well until all the sugar is dissolved - this works best if the liquids are at room temp.  refrigerate until  cold and then, if you really want to add some creepy-goodness, drop in a block of dry ice to create some spooky fog!  (adapted from {this} recipe.)

cheers to a creepy halloween!
