The Countess Cocktail

The Countess Cocktail

To get in the mood for the upcoming season, I started decorating for Halloween and realized that I needed to have some spooky cocktails to celebrate. After the premiere of American Horror Story: Hotel last week (which I talked about here), I decided that a cocktail based on the show needed to happen. And because Lady Gaga’s character, The Countess, got everyone talking, I knew she had to be the inspiration for this drink. As a nod to her vampire-esque qualities, I decided a deep, red colored cocktail was the way to go.

While the drink may look creepy (that’s what makes it fun!), the ingredients are anything but. Black cherry soda, grenadine, vodka, and a sprig of rosemary are all you need for this blood-red cocktail. It’s a simple (and delicious) drink to mix up while watching AHS or any Halloween-themed movie, really.
