The Girl with the Mermaid Hair

Cocktail Created by Niccole Trzaska, The Liberty NYC

A cotton candy garnish shifts the coloration on this delicious shock-tail


1 part Sugar Island Coconut Rum

¼ part Butterscotch Schnapps

1 part coconut water

¼ part fresh lemon juice

In a mason jar, gently place two different colored cotton candy bunches (Mermaid Hair); mix all ingredients and shake over ice; slowly pour over the Mermaid Hair to liquefy and morph the color of the cocktail. Once all is liquefied, top with ice, a straw and enjoy!

Morphing Potion #9

Cocktail Created by John Henderson

The addition of cola cubes slowly morph this Old Fashioned into a Maker’s & Coke….


2 parts Maker’s Mark Bourbon

¼ part Cherry Heering

1 dash Chocolate Mole Bitters

1 2×2 cola cube*

¾ part soda water

Orange swath

Place one cola cube into a short rocks glass; add Maker’s Mark, bitters, and soda water. Drizzle Cheery Herring over the top of the ice cube (which will slowly sink to the bottom of the cocktail for bloody effect!); stir briefly to incorporate and place  an orange swath over the surface of the drink.

*Cola cube: Freeze Mexican Coca-Cola overnight in a 2×2 ice cube tray

Haunted Hacienda

Cocktail Created by John Henderson

The Campari skull cube transforms this Pisco Portón riff on a Manhattan into a pisco Negroni in no time!

1 ½ parts Pisco Portón

¾ part sweet vermouth

1 dash Angostura bitters

1 Campari ice cube*

In a short rocks glass, combine Pisco Portón, sweet vermouth and dash of Angostura bitters. Place the Campari ice cube in glass and if desired, garnish with a SMALL pinch of pink salt. As the salt hits the cube, it will spur the Campari cube to melt.

*Campari ice cube: Overnight, freeze a mixture of Campari and water, at a ratio close to 50:50

Fact: Pisco Portón is produced at the oldest distillery in the Americas, Hacienda la Caravedo.
