From the murky depths Swamp Thing emerges. The cocktail gets its nebulous color from black vodka and blood oranges, two ingredients that are perfect for many Halloween beverages.
- ½ a blood orange (sliced with peel and pith removed)
- Sprig of mint leaves
- 2 lime slices
- Powdered sugar
- 2 oz black vodka
Put the blood orange slices and mint leaves in a glass and muddle them. Add a squirt of lime and a small sprinkling of powdered sugar. Put ice and black vodka in a cocktail shaker to cool, pour over the mixture and stir gently. Garnish with a lime slice.
