liquid news Blood Orange Vampire Cocktails to give you the creeps IF you're delving into the dark side this Halloween and are thirsty for a ghoulish treat or creepy cocktail, these three spine chilling recipes promise a fiendishly good time...

1 Cointreau Fizz Halloween Cocktail A mixologist's best friend, the sweet and bitter orange peel flavours in Cointreau Liqueur (PS15, 50cl, Tesco) cry out for fright night when they come together in this fiery orange tipple full of spark.

Ingredients: 40ml Cointreau, 10ml fresh lime juice, 40ml blood orange juice, 40ml sparkling water.

Method: Fill a glass with ice, add the Cointreau, fresh lime juice, and blood orange juice. Top off with sparkling water and stir gently. Garnish with two slices of blood orange, shaped like horns.

2 Black Cow Trick or 'Teat' A smooth, creamy vodka, Black Cow (PS24, 70cl, Sainsbury's) casts its spell with the milk from grass grazed cows. Beautifully balanced, Halloween candy is optional...

Ingredients: 45ml Black Cow, 20ml ginger wine, 15ml Monin Pumpkin Spice Syrup, 10ml lemon juice, 5ml pineapple juice.

Method: Half fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all the ingredients, shake vigorously and double strain into a chilled coupette. The pineapple will give it a slight foam. Garnish with a dried lemon slice and a little cinnamon dust.

3 Blood Orange Vampire With a herbal bite from the vermouth and the zesty, fruity spice of Whitley Neill Blood Orange Vodka (PS25.85, Amazon), this will look brilliant on the bar sat seductively alongside a carved out Jack-O'-Lantern.

Ingredients: 50ml Whitley Neill Blood Orange, 50ml sweet vermouth, 50ml cranberry juice.

Method: Fill a rocks glass with ice. Add all the ingredients and stir. Garnish with an orange wedge.
