Happy Thursday, Y’all! For today’s cocktail, I thought this drink sounded fun! I’ve never tried it before, but couldn’t resist picking the Dra-Kahlua. The name is so creative! Hope y’all have a great day – it’s almost Halloween weekend! Can’t wait to see all the latest creative costumes. Last year the best I saw were the Swine Flu (people dressed as pigs with wings, and H1N1 on their shirts) and Captain Sully and his crew (people dressed as flight attendants with feathers stuck to them).
1 1/2 oz. Kahlúa
1/2 oz. Martell V.S. Cognac
1/2 oz. Triple Sec
3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz. simple syrup
Blood orange wedge for garnish
Shake ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain into a chilled, half sugar-rimmed martini glass and garnish with a blood orange wedge. Yum!
Instead of what I’ll be wearing while enjoying this drink, I thought I’d offer up some great Halloween costumes that I’d never seen before. And for someone who spent every Halloween on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill – Halloween Central!! – this was quite a bit difficult! One year, my sister and her husband dressed up as news woman and videographer. People thought they were real, so they got some footage of great, crazy costumes, which was hilarious! Unfortunately, the battery died shortly after they started filming, so we didn’t get to see as much. Oh well.
