This tasty tini is easy to make and lends a festive, orange color to any Halloween party.

The recipe is:
1.5 oz. Smirnoff Black Cherry Vodka
3 oz. Orange soda (we like Crush)
2 tsp. brown sugar

Mix your ingredients in a shaker and pour slowly into your glass.

For a spooky effect, add a little dryice. You only need a piece the size of a sugar cube and it will bubble and smoke for about 5-7 minutes. Dryice is not harmful (unless you plan on inhaling fumes from a large bucket full). For a kid friendly version, simply replace the Vodka with a black cherry flavored clear soda. No ice is necessary. The dryice will naturally cool your drink!

For decor, we used festive baking cups. Simply cut them in fourths and remove the inner circle. Use double sided tape or glue dots to hide the seam and attach them to your glass. Because you aren’t using ice, your glass will not sweat. Your lovely decorative touch will remain intact! We loved the natural ridged look that the baking cup provided. So much fun!

Tips:
* Fill your glasses away from the table. Your drink will bubble and may splatter some of the liquid onto your tablecloth when you first drop in your dryice pieces.

* Change the color of your drink by using flavored clear soda and a dash of food coloring.

* Add a sweet, spooky garnish with one of our Mini Halloween Sweet Skewers! Don’t forget to cover the stick end with plastic wrap so it doesn’t get soggy in your drink.

Serve them up and enjoy!
