Ingredients:
2 oz. Dark Rum
1/2 oz. Dry Vermouth
2 Black Olives
Orange Sugar (optional for the rim)

Directions:
Pro Tip: Here’s how to chill a martini glass in a pinch. Before you start mixing the drink, fill your martini glasses to the brim with ice water and set them aside.

Ok, we’re ready for the ‘tini. Pour the rum and vermouth into a shaker over a handful of ice. Now shake the shaker until it becomes very cold. Dump the ice water out of the martini glasses. Are they frosted? Good. Now strain the bloody concoction into the now chilled martini glass, and garnish with the black olive.

5. Zombie Gut Punch Cocktail

A photo posted by Kyle GS (@kgrahams) on

Ingredients:
10 ounces Crystal Head vodka
5 ounces Triple Sec
2 ounces Bitters
1 cup Fresh Squeezed Blood Orange Juice
2 cups Black Cherry Soda
Grenadine for the Rim

Directions:
Frist of all, if you’re not using Crystal Head vodka, Dan Aykroyd won’t be happy. In a large punch bowl filled with ice, pour vodka, triple sec, bitters, blood orange juice and black cherry soda.

Chomp your teeth and stir the concoction like you’re hungry for human brains. Rim each glass with grenadine before filling with the punch mixture, and serve. Drink and hope for the best. Boozy!

4. Bloody Brain Shooter

A photo posted by Barclays Pub (@barclays_pub) on


Ingredients:
1 1/4 oz. Strawberry Vodka
1/8 oz. Rose’s Lime Juice
3/4 oz. Bailey’s Irish Cream
Splash of Grenadine

Directions:
This one requires some finesse, so listen up, Timothy! Chill the vodka for better smoothness. Add vodka and lime juice to a shaker, shake and strain into a shot glass. Using a straw, dip some Bailey’s Irish Cream into the shot. Once you submerge the straw into the Bailey’s put your finger on top of the straw to hold the Bailey’s in the straw. Dip the straw tip into the vodka and slowly release your top finger. This is some real Martha Stewart, crafty business here, Bub. The Bailey’s will curdle a little bit due to the lime juice and you should be able to make strands of the cream. Repeat the straw/Bailey’s process to build a “brain” in the shot glass. Add a splash of grenadine to the concoction to add the ‘blood’ to the mix.

Now shoot it down your throat like a bloody-brain-bullet.

3. I Zombie


Ingredients:
1/2 ounce White Rum
1 1/2 ounces Golden Rum
1 ounce Dark Rum
1/2 ounce 151-Proof Rum
1 ounce Lime Juice
1 teaspoon Pineapple Juice
1 teaspoon Papaya Juice
1 teaspoon Superfine Sugar

Directions:
All the rums, son! Stir together all these ingredients except the 151 and pour into a 14-ounce glass three-fourths full of cracked ice. Float the 151 as a lid (by pouring it into a spoon and gently dipping it under the surface of the drink). Then, if the spirit moves you, take a match to this mixture; it will burn. Be careful here, Philip, don’t go getting yourself a million views on YouTube because flaming alcohol is only funny when it happens to other people.

Garnish with mint (either straight or dipped in lime juice and then superfine sugar) and/or fruit. (A particularly fetching touch: On a toothpick, impale a lemon slice or pineapple cube between two maraschino cherries and lay this fruit kabob atop of the drink).

A couple of these and you will be knocked on your ass like you got in a fight with Rick Grimes.

2. Bloody Brain Hemorrhage

A photo posted by Vlad Ras T (@vlad_ras_t) on


Ingredients:
1/2 – 3/4 oz. Peach Schnapps
1-2 Tbl. of Baileys
1 tsp Grenadine

Directions:
Pour the Peach Schnapps into a good sized shot glass. Float the Baileys on top of the Schnapps. Pour the grenadine through the Baileys and watch it drip down. If it looks disgusting as fuck, you made this drink to perfection. Drink and let your brain explode.

1. 40oz. Of Horror’s Very Own Jason Takes Manhattan


Ingredients:
2 oz Old Grand-dad 114
1/2 oz Sweet Vermouth
2-3 dashes Angostura Bitters
2 Bacardi 151 Cherries

Directions:
This is a 40oz. of Horror original, so watch out! And if anyone ever tells you a Manhattan is a cocktail for grannies’s, tell them, “Piss off!” They probably can’t handle bourbon anyway. Also, tell ’em your granny is Pamela Voorhees.

2 – 5 days before you plan on serving this wondrous cocktail, put cherries in a jar and fill up the jar with Bacardi 151. Seal it up and put it in your refrigerator.

When it’s time to get fucking weird, pour the Old Grand-dad 114, sweet vermouth, and bitters into a shaker over a handful of ice.

“Damn,” you say as the 114 proof Old Grand-dad fills your nostrils, “we’re in for a fun night!”

Now shake that shit. Shake it until the shaker is so cold it hurts your hands! Strain the booze into a chilled cocktail glass and plop in a couple of the aforementioned 151 cherries.

Tell your friends, “Goodnight!” and drink it like a boss.

BONUS #1 – A 40oz. Of Horror Hangover Cure – The Bloody Motherfucking Mary

It should be noted that Bub and I actually made the three Bloody Marys shown here. Click on the Instagram link and see for yourself. We went to the store and bought all this shit specifically to make the most epic Bloody Marys known to man.

A photo posted by Brandon (@brandontaylorgentry) on


Ingredients:
1.5 ounces of Bacon & Cucumber Infused Vodka
Hoosier Momma Bloody Mary Mix (I like the Spicy Hot version)
1 Strip of Cooked Bacon
1 Peperoncini
3 Cocktail Onions
2 Garlic Stuffed Olives
1 Baby Corn
1 Smoked Oysters
1 Whole Pickle
1 Cocktail Shrimp
3 – 4 Monterey Jack Cheese Cubes
1 Jalopeno
3 – 4 Pepperonis
1 Red Onion (roughly chopped)
1 Olive-Wrapped
1 Anchovie
1 Spring Onion
1 Lime Wedge
1 Celery Stalk

Directions: 
If you currently have a hangover, I appologize for making you read through, and shop for, all those ingredients, but stick with me. You’ll be cured in no time!

Fill a pint glass about 3/4 of the way full with ice cubes. Pour in the vodka and enough of the Bloody Mary mix to get you close to the top. Don’t forget that we’re about to unleash the most ingredients you’ve ever used in your entire life, so leave some room for water displacement (I learned that shit from Mr. Wizard). Mix the the bloody by pouring the mixture, ice and all, into an empty pint glass and then back again. Ok, you’re good to begin garnishing.

Go ahead and put the big celery stalk and spring onions in first. Look at that green pop! Classic blood right there. Time to get real weird. Using wooden skewers, begin stabbing the shit out of all the smaller veggies, cheese and meats. Think about them like mini kabobs. Think about the flavors you like together. Add the skewers to the drink. Now you should have a number of kabob “fingers” sticking out of the glass. Use them to hold your lager ingredients in place. Give everything a quick squirt of lime and add the lime wedge to the pile. Dangle the bacon out of the glass. Find a good spot for that smoked oyster. Don’t forget about that big pickle. Hang cocktail shrimp from the rim of the glass and so on and so on. You will DEFINITELY need a straw for this drink.

Sip and relax. Not only will this epic Bloody Mary recipe get you feeling human again after a night of #BoozinGoneBad, but your appetite should start coming back and it really turns into a meal. The salty, spicy, greasy goodness of all the ingredients will have you back to your old self in no time!

BONUS #2 – And if you’re feeling especially froggy…

40oz. Of Horror Original Christmas Cocktail Recipes Will Get You Where You Need To Be

We all know that the holidays can be stressful, so here are a few of our original Christmas cocktail recipes that are sure to take the edge off. Leave all your notions that sweet, chocolatey holiday cocktails are too girly in your panty drawer, Susan, because this is how you do it right.

Hot Toddy Recipe40oz. of Horror Hot Toddy

Ingredients:
2 oz. Wild Turkey Special Reserve
1 or 2 tea bags (black tea)
1 Tbsp honey
1 slice of lemon
1 cup of hot water
1 cinnamon stick

Directions:
Make like your grandma and boil some water in a tea kettle. When the whistle’s a blowin’ the water’s ready for flowin’ — so pour the hot water into a good sized coffee mug. That’s right, we’re drinking this booze-ooze out of a mug like a 1950s high school principal. Now take your tea bags and tea-bag that water until it’s good and brown. Be careful with this step because this tea is as hot as a freshly-baked Totino’s Pizza Roll. Dump in the Wild Turkey Special Reserve and the rest of your ingredients. Give it a slow stir with a cinnamon stick and garnish the rim with a slice of lemon. Sip slowly on a cold winter’s night and this drink will cure what ails ya!

If you’re feeling especially festive, finish this tea with clove *cigarette.
*Surgeon Brandon’s Warning: Smoking causes cancer and drinking gets you drunk.

Spiked Eggnog Moose MugDrunken Elf Eggnog

Ingredients:
2 oz. Courvoisier Cognac
5 oz. eggnog
Ground cinnamon
Ground nutmeg

Directions:
Typical holiday spiked eggnog calls for any run-of-the-mill brandy, but up in here, we’re taking a page out of The Ladies’ Man playbook and using Courvoisier Cognac! Other than using some fine cognac, toss any notion of classy out the fucking window and fill up a Moose Mug with eggnog. Slurp the top of the eggnog down to make room for the ‘gnac. Open the bottle of Courvoisier and take a good whiff — savor that shit (because it smells awesome) — then pour it into the eggnog. Give the Moose Mug a little swirl, then add a couple dashes of cinnamon and nutmeg. Drink it down, Cousin Eddie, because it’s Christmas!

Peppermint Schnapps Hot ChocolateHit the Floor Hot Chocolate

Ingredients:
1 can of alcohol-infused whipped cream
32 oz. instant hot chocolate
6 oz. peppermint schnapps
Bacardi 151 cherries
Chocolate sprinkles

Directions:
2 – 5 days before you plan on serving this cocktail, put cherries in a jar and fill up the jar with Bacardi 151. Seal up the jar and put it in your refrigerator. Make your instant hot chocolate according to the directions on the package. Give a little to your kids and tell them to go to bed or else Santa’s going to skip your house. Now take the rest and add your favorite brand of peppermint schnapps. Give it a stir and top it off with a healthy squirt of loaded whipped cream. For a real kick in the pants, top the cream with a Bacardi 151 cherry. If you’re feeling like Martha Stewart, grate some chocolate dust or add some chocolate sprinkles on top. If you’re enjoying this drink at a frat party, dare all your bros to take shots of the remaining Bacardi 151 cherry juice.

(serves about 4 people… or yourself depending on how bad/good your night is.)

Always remember to drink responsibly and have a happy holiday!
