Brain Hemorrhage and Tootsie Roll shots

You always hear on the shows where they're throwing a party and they want their own "signature cocktail". Well I thought it would be fun for a cocktail to welcome guest that goes along with the theme of the party. I did a search online for some creepy cocktails and found two that sounded pretty good and didn't have some random liquor I'll never use again. The Tootsie Roll shot tasted just like a tootsie roll, except would have been better if I read the instructions a little better (see my note below). It's supposed to look more like chocolate milk then layered like my picture. The brain hemorrhage is pretty nasty looking, but taste like peaches and cream. The cool thing is you can make them a little ahead of time and it holds it's shape so it's not one you have to make to order.

Brain Hemorrhage

1 1/2 ounce peach schnapps
float 1/4 ounce Baileys Irish Cream on top
drop 1 teaspoon grenadine through the Baileys

Tootsie Roll Shot

2/3 ounce chocolate vodka
1/3 ounce amaretto
drizzle of chocolate syrup

Shake ingredients over ice and strain into a shot glass. (I messed up and just put the syrup in the bottom of the glass instead of shaking it with the vodka and amaretto. Shake it with it so you won't have the issue I had where it seems like no point in the syrup because it sticks to the bottom.)

I arranged all the shots on a platter and decorated with plastic bugs and eyeballs.


  1. Okay, your right that brain Hemorrhage makes you kinda think twice about drinking it.
