The Wolf-Bite shot recipe

It’s the season for Halloween parties and nothing livens up a party like everyone taking a quick shot. Now it’s one thing to do a regular shot of spirits like tequila or sambuca but what will really impress your party guests is a fun cocktail shot with a cool visual effect and a crazy after bite!

Using grenadine at the end of a shot or cocktail will give the incredible visual effect of two tone colours. In this case you have the ghoulish green of the Midori against the bloody red of the grenadine. Adding this last step in front of all your friends will be an excellent party trick.

Now, on to the real trick of this Halloween treat… the after-shock that gives the shot its name. What your party guests won’t see you do is to hide a small amount of absinthe in the sweet Midori. They’ll only expect the sweet mixture of Midori, pineapple and Grenadine but will get a special surprise when the shock of the absinthe hits them.

Absinthe is a Swedish anise-flavoured drink traditionally a green colour, which is where it got its nickname The Green Fairy. It was banned in many countries not long after its establishment due to its supposed psychoactive properties and extreme strength in alcohol volume, but then it came back with a punch in the 1990s and has been enjoyed in moderation since.

Here’s how you make the Wolf-Bite shot:


  • 7ml absinthe
  • 14ml Midori Liqueur
  • 30ml pineapple juice
  • Splash of lemon soda
  • Dash of grenadine


  1. Add pineapple juice, Midori and absinthe in a cocktail shaker with some ice.
  2. Shake and strain into a tall shot glass.
  3. Splash the lemon soda on top.
  4. Drizzle the grenadine on top and watch it sink to the bottom.


  • Tall shot glass
  • Cocktail shaker
  • Strainer
