    Love the vampire drink with the “blood” rim – super cool!

    I find the idea of black cocktails at a Halloween party so enticing! Although I wonder what it does to your teeth?

    I guess Halloween is the one time you could get away with black teeth though!

    I’ve never been a huge fan of Halloween, but I’ve seen some of the cutest party ideas this year to make it that much more fun. And I’ve had so much more fun getting into the decorating too! These are great — thank you!!!

    How do you get the blood rim? i love that idea!

    Mauve –

    The “blood rim” is made from the same kind of sauce as you’d use to make candy apples. It’s actually really easy, but you’ll need a candy thermometer (which you can get at most grocery stores). Here’s the recipe:

    1 c. Sugar
    1/2 c. Karo Syrup
    1/2 c. Water
    Red Food Coloring
    Cinnamon (optional)

    Combine sugar, syrup and water. Cook without stirring to hard crack stage – which is 300 degrees F. Add food coloring. Cinnamon may be added for flavor.

    Turn off heat. While the mixture is still hot, dunk the top of the cocktail glass into the mixture to create the red rim.

    The thick consistency of the mixture will cause “drips” as it cools and hardens on the glass!
