Zombie Brains Halloween Shots

  • Author: dellcove


This ghoulish drink is just the perfect amount of sweet – but not too sweet – and is a nod to the traditional orange and black decorations of Halloween. Very easy to make, and using only three ingredients, you’ll want to pour this drink into shot glass rimmed with a wreath of our Halloween blend of sparkling sugar.



  • Vodka – 3 Oz
  • Simple Syrup – 1 tsp
  • 2 Very Ripe Kiwis
  • Ice
  • Dell Cove Spice Co.’s Halloween cocktail rim sugar


Rim your shot glasses with the cocktail sugar and set aside to let the sugar set. Peel your kiwi fruit and cut it into slices. The easiest way to peel a kiwi is to cut the fruit in half and scoop out the flesh with a spoon – and THEN cut the fruit into smaller chunks.

Then, place the fruit into the cocktail shaker and crush it very well, using a muddler or the flat end of a bar spoon. Don’t worry about over-muddling (or crushing) your fruit. But do make sure that the fruit is really ripe.

Don’t know how to figure that out when you’re at the grocery store or farmers market? When it comes to kiwi fruit, don’t assume that the larger fruit is always the tastiest – small fruit can pack quite a delicious punch. Instead, gently press the outside of the fruit with your thumb. If the fruit feels like it’s just a bit soft and giving to the slight pressure of your thumb, then it’s ripe.

Next, add ice into the shaker, the vodka and the simple syrup. (See recipe below to make your own simple syrup.) Cover the shaker and shake well until shaker is frosted. Strain mix into shot glasses and serve.

Bar supplies:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Muddler
  • Shot glasses (chilled)
  • Dell Cove Spice Co.’s Halloween cocktail rim sugar
