Spooktacular Florida Orange Halloween Martini Recipe
Table of Contents:
- 2 oz orange vodka
- 1 oz orange liqueur (like Triple Sec or Cointreau)
- 2 oz Florida orange juice
- 1 oz pineapple juice
- 1/2 oz grenadine syrup
- Ice cubes
- Orange slice and candy corn for garnish (optional)
Chill Your Glassware:
Begin by chilling your martini glass. You can do this by placing it in the freezer for about 10 minutes or by filling it with ice and letting it sit while you prepare the martini.
Prepare the Cocktail Shaker:
Grab your cocktail shaker and fill it with ice cubes. The colder your ingredients, the better your martini will be!
Add the Orange Vodka:
Pour 2 ounces of orange vodka into the shaker. This is where the hauntingly orange color comes from!
Pour in the Orange Liqueur:
Follow up with 1 ounce of orange liqueur. The sweet citrus flavor will balance the cocktail perfectly.
Squeeze Some Freshness:
Add 2 ounces of orange juice for that vibrant, citrusy zing.
Pour in 1 ounce of pineapple juice to add a hint of tropical flavor. This unexpected twist will keep your guests guessing.
Shake It Like a Witch’s Brew:
Close your cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds. Imagine you’re casting a spell while shaking!

Remove the ice from your chilled martini glass and strain the mixture from the shaker into the glass. This will ensure a silky-smooth martini.
The Blood Moon Effect:
To give your Orange Halloween Martini that eerie touch, slowly pour 1/2 ounce of grenadine syrup over the back of a spoon so that it sinks to the bottom of the glass. This will create a stunning “blood moon” effect.
Garnish with Spooky Fun:
For the final touch, you can add a slice of orange and even a candy corn skewer for a spooky garnish.
Serve and Enjoy:
Hand your guests this enchanting cocktail and watch their faces light up with Halloween delight!
