Serve up some ghoulish cocktails with vodka as dark as night!

Ghost in the Graveyard

Serves 1

  • 2 ounces black vodka
  • 2 ounces creme de cacao or coffee-flavored liqueur
  • 1 scoop vanilla ice cream
  • Pinch of finely grated nutmeg, for garnish

In a glass, combine vodka and creme de cacao, and set aside. Place a scoop of ice cream in a highball glass, and slowly pour vodka mixture over ice cream. Garnish with nutmeg; serve immediately.

Screwed-Up Screwdriver

Serves 1

  • 1/4 cup ice
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed tangerine juice
  • 1 1/2 ounces black vodka
  • 1 black licorice twist, for serving

Place ice in a tall glass. Pour juice into glass. Pour vodka over the back of a cocktail spoon into glass so it sits on top of juice and creates a layer of black. Slice 1/4 inch off each end of licorice, and use as a straw. Serve immediately.

Berry Scary Martini

Serves 1

  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 ounce black vodka
  • 2 ounces cherry juice
  • Fresh raspberries and blueberries, for garnish

Combine ice, vodka, and cherry juice in a cocktail shaker; shake vigorously. Pour into a martini glass. Thread raspberries and blueberries onto a cocktail skewer, and place in drink. Serve immediately.
