This Vodka Martini recipe! It’s rich and such a deep black, perfect to serve as a Halloween cocktail.
Making this vodka martini recipe is a must to add to your home bar for those ghoulishly spooky Halloween get-togethers.
While you can buy both the fig flavored vodka and black vodka, if you plan a few days in advance you can easily create this distinctly dark Halloween cocktail to serve your guests.
How to make black vodka?
- Select your favorite vodka, about 750 ml bottle if you’re planning a party.
- Grab some food coloring, 1/4 teaspoon of black gel food coloring or you can use 2 drops each of red, green, and blue liquid food coloring to create black.
- Mix the chosen food coloring into the vodka and give it a good shake, add more coloring for a deeper black if desired, and that’s it, you have black vodka without changing the taste.
This perfectly Halloween fruity cocktail drink is layered with hints of figs then rounded off with a layer of black currant, making this vodka martini an absolute to make as a home bartender.
