What You’ll Need For Cocktail

Cranberry Vodka – The cranberry vodka really elevates this Halloween cocktail even more. It is going to offer a nice tart flavor to the vodka. 

Strawberry Watermelon Gatorade You can use strawberry Gatorade if you can find the strawberry watermelon flavor. 

Blue Powerade – The blue raspberry flavor of this is going to add extra sweetness to balance out the tartness. 

Red Food Gel – The food coloring is going to really give this a bloody look that is perfect to fit the mixed drink. 

Syringes – These are what you will use to put the blue Powerade and squirt into the cocktail right before drinking. It gives it a really creative Halloween vibe. 

Dry Ice chips – this is optional if you want to make a spooky effect but be sure to wait till dissolved before consuming.

How to Make This Freddy Krueger Drink

This dream warriors cocktail is so easy to make. Start by grabbing a glass and mix together the vodka, food coloring and strawberry watermelon Gatorade. 

Mix well to ensure the food coloring mixes well with the liquid. Then you will pour the mixture over ice. 

Grab your syringe and place the blue Powerade in the syringe and sit on top of the cocktail. 

Serve it up, and then let those who drink it squirt the Powerade into the drink then sip and enjoy. 

Variations and Tips 

  • You are welcome to use other flavors of vodka. I love the cranberry but even a strawberry lemonade, lime, lemon, etc. Feel free to use even a plain vodka if you want. 
  • Use a red colored Gatorade or Powerade as the base to get the red color. But you could even reach for a fruit punch or something else if you would prefer. 
  • Feel free to change up the flavor of Powerade in the syringe. Even a grape would be a nice compliment of flavor or orange. 
  • The ice is going to allow you to sit the syringe on top and it won’t fall into the drink. 
  • You can garnish your glass with plastic Halloween fangs, fake witch fingers, etc. Or leave it plain.

FAQs

Does this recipe double? 

You can make as much of this mixed drink as you would like. Just don’t pour it over ice until you are ready to serve it. As the ice will melt and water down the flavor of the cocktail. 

What can I use instead of Gatorade? 

If you are not a fan of the Gatorade you can use a flavored water or even a lemon-lime soda. The carbonation of the soda will be a nice twist of flavor. Then you can color the liquid in the syringe with food coloring if you don’t use blue powerade.
