This is a simple but very exciting recipe that will impress your partygoers immensely. The garnish for this recipe is a bright blue glow stick so why not prepare the cocktails separately to the party and present them to your guests with the main lights off for a spooky and chilling glowing drink effect that will surely hypnotise your guests.

Hypnosis is something that has been used throughout history for many reasons in many different cultures. Some used a hypnotic state for religious practices, some believed it could be used for medical purposes but perhaps the most widely known is the use of hypnotism as entertainment.

 Drink

It started in the 18th century by a man named Franz Mesmer, an Austrian physician who believed that hypnosis was a mystical force held by the hypnotist that was transferred to the participant, allowing them to be manipulated. It is said that when in a hypnotic state people are in a relaxed state open to all suggestibility, only listening to the hypnotist, and responding to their commands in a completely unabashed way. Hypnosis is still a popular entertainment today with performers such as Derren Brown still practicing hypnotism as part of their magic acts.

Here’s how to make the Halloween Hpnotist Cocktail:

Ingredients:

Preparation:

  1. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice pour the liqueur, vodka and lemon.
  2. Shake well for 10 seconds.
