Bloody Pome-quila

Created by Monica Carbonell, Beverage Director of Liquid Culture, this spooky libation is sure to be a hit at your Halloween party!

Bloody Pome-quila
Makes one cocktail
• 1.5 oz blanco tequila
• 1 oz pomegranate juice
• 1 oz grapefruit juice
• .75 oz Grand Marnier
• 2 dashes El Guapo® Holiday Pie Bitters
Icing sugar, water & red food coloring, for garnish

To create blood dripping rim, mix icing sugar and red food coloring into a paste in a small, shallow plate and add drops of water until the mixture takes on a thick, viscous consistency. Dip clean rocks glasses into liquid & turn upright to dry. The red liquid will run down the glass as it dries, imitating blood. (Skip this for ease & a great drink sans the Halloween effect).

In a shaker filled with ice, combine tequila, juices, Grand Marnier and bitters. Shake until well shilled. Fill blood-rimmed rocks glass with ice & strain cocktail, serving immediately.
