    What about watermelon daiquiris (Sp?) , frozen then pureed watermelon with lime juice, sugar syrup ( a touch of orange liquour as an option) and white rum served over crushed ice. Looks spooky but tastes great!

    Ok this link is for specific vampire drinks from a "vampire" site (warning, popups)

    http://blackmoonservant.tripod.com/t...kmoon/id9.html

    and these links are for vampire and related theme cocktails

    Another idea is to use "Vampire" brand red wine, served straight up or as a punch if you're serving a lot:

    http://www.virtualcities.com/ons/0rec/12/drink87.htm

    or serve Vampire brand wine in a mix of different cocktails:

    Or just make it a "Vampire's Blood Tasting" and serve a few different kinds of spooky red wine

    http://weeklywire.com/ww/10-27-97/boston_feature_7.html

    And these are commercial beverages but they might give you ideas for presentation

    http://www.vampiredrinks.com/


    Sloe Gin, Chambord, Grenadine, Cherry Brandy, Blackberry Brandy, and a few others will add your necessary red coloring to whatever drinks you like. If you don't like the taste you can always use it to rim your glasses and drip like Martha did a few years ago for a very cool presentation.

    Also, mashed up strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and tomatoes will add a very icky "guts" element to any drink if you're trying to impart realism, or just gross your guests out.

    Vampire's (Sangria) Punch:

    2 bottles of Rioja or Merlot
    15 oz. Cranberry Juice
    4 oz. Rum

    You can use peeled grapes as floating eyes, or fill a latex glove and freeze it with water for a floating hand. Just don't make the mistake we did and try to freeze cranberry juice... :-)

    At my Halloween party last year it was all about the drinks and food. For one drink we made Lime punch(you can use any flavor) and put in semi-setup Jello(again we used red) just so it was a little chunky or slimy the colors looked great and the two textures looked really cool and tasted really funky(in a good way).

    I feed the vampires at my party these...clotted blood martinis: small cubes of raspberry jello shooters (you can use plain jello too), a shot of vodka (flavoured is good) a shot of water and a drop of grenadine. The vodka tears up the jello so it really looks like blood clots...it's great...but you have to tone down the alcohol content pretty quickly if your guests like them TOO much

    That sounds fun! I bet you could modify what we made last year so that it was a Blood Clot Punch. We made Swamp Slime, which because of the liquors is green - but you could use clear and amber liquors, and maybe grenadine to make it red instead. Or, make a sangria and then float "blood clots".

    Here's the recipe we used (pretty simple to make to). We just increased to fill a punch bowl with the swamp water instead of doing individual cocktails, then let the ectoplasm float in the bowl:

    Ectoplasm
    Start with;
    1 pkg. Lime Jell-O, 1 Cup boiling water & 3/4 Cup Rum, Vodka or Tequila
    Dissolve Jell-O in boiling water, Mix in alcohol, Set in freezer.
    Just before it gels, whip it with a whisk & let set.

    Swamp Water
    1/2 oz. Blue Curacao, 1/2 oz. Peach Schnapps, Splash each of; Orange & Pineapple Juice
    Shake over ice & Strain into cocktail glass.

    Spoon Ectoplasm carefully into glass. It will float, giving an eerie effect.

    Garnish Ideas
    Raisins, Red Grapes, Maraschino Cherries stuffed with Raisins, or Gummy Worms

    Punch
    Increase amounts to fill punch bowl & add a can or two of Citrus Soda (like Mountain Dew or Wink). Keep cold until ready to serve, Spoon in EctopColasm just before serving & Garnish Punch bowl with Gummy Worms.

    Not really monster-like but it's very good and it's red so it could signify blood.

    ZUMANITINI

    1 oz Absolute Citron
    1/2 oz Cherry Berry Pucker
    1/2 oz Triple Sec
    1/2 oz Grand Montiet
    Fill with rest with half Sweet and Sour and half Cranberry Juice.
