Graveyard Cocktail Recipe

Halloween is a time for all kinds of ghoulish folly, and this drink is no exception.

The Graveyard Cocktail begins with the same premise as a Long Island Iced Tea. Basically, let’s put five white spirits together in a glass and see what happens. It goes the extra (grave)yard, however, by adding two types of whiskey and using a potent stout to top up the brew rather than Coke. And an evil brew it certainly is.

There is some confusion as to whether All Hallows’ Evening began as a wholly Christian celebration, marking the time of year when the dead are remembered, or whether it has Celtic/pagan roots. Either way, it has come to symbolise a night for kids to dress up in scary costumes and beg sweets off the neighbours. While they’re busy with that, the bigger kids have made a new tradition for paying homage to the dead - inventing appropriately frightening cocktails.

Others in this long line of satanic concoctions include the Skeleton Key, the Witch Hunt, the Jack O’Lantern, Blood and Sand, and of course the Zombie.

A word of caution before you begin. The Graveyard Cocktail is dangerously alcoholic. It has the equivalent of over 4 shots of spirits and isn’t to be taken lightly – if you’re brave enough to try it at all.

Here’s what you need:

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Pour the five white spirits and two whiskeys into a beer glass.
  2. Top up with stout.
  3. Garnish – don’t bother. You won’t notice it after 3 sips of your drink.
