Equipment

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Citrus juicer
  • Muddler
  • Jigger or small measuring cup

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup raspberries
  • ¼ cup pomegranate juice
  • 2 ounces orange juice preferably freshly squeezed
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 1 ounce Chambord
  • Ice
  • Dry ice optional, for spooky effect (see notes for safety recommendations)
  • Splash of ginger ale

Instructions

  • In a cocktail shaker, muddle raspberries until they break down.
  • Add the pomegranate juice, orange juice, vodka, Chambord and ice. Put on the top and shake vigorously for 15 seconds.
  • Strain into ice-filled glasses if just using regular ice. If using dry ice, use gloves and tongs (not your bare skin) to drop in a piece of dry ice. Let you guests know not to ingest the dry ice -- sip from the top until it stops steaming or wait until it stop steaming completely before sipping. Top with ginger ale. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Do not touch dry ice with bare skin or ingest it. Make sure to use tongs to transfer the ice. Gloves are also a good idea. The ice will drop to the bottom of the glass. Either let your guest know to sip the cocktail from the top until it stops bubbling, or set the cocktail out to show off the fun effect but don't serve until the bubbling stops, about five minutes.
  • I prefer freshly squeezed orange juice, but you can also use store-bought orange juice, especially if you scale this up to serve a crowd.
