Happy Halloween everybody! If you’re having a party and looking to gross out your guests, try this bloody brain shooter cocktail recipe. It uses a little lime juice to curdle some Irish cream that you apply to the shot with a straw to make brain-like strands. Add a touch of grenadine “blood” for a final touch. [Thanks, Fil!]

    We had a much simpler version in the 90s:
    A shot glass 1/2 full of peppermint schnapps
    Dribble Baileys from a foot above the shot glass.

    This is so creative and looks great. How does it taste?

    Any thoughts on how to make a non-alcoholic kids version of this?
