Kicking off our month of Halloween cocktails with an extra spicy, extra bloody Bloody Mary…
Throughout October we’ll be bringing you creepy cocktails courtesy of the guys over at the Bar
The Red Widow, is a twist on the classic drink that you won’t forget. Share with friends on the spookiest night of the year. Blending together Smirnoff No.21 Vodka, tomato juice for texture and colour, soy sauce to give some saltiness and zesty citrus from a wedge of lemon, this cocktail delivers bold flavours for an extra scary night. There’s even garlic for warding off the vampires – or wasabi to give extra heat. Stir together with the celery stick and serve to friends.
