ONE OF MY FAVORITE cocktail blogs is “Fashionably Bombed,” written by “fashionista mixologist sisters” Flannery and Katherine Good of Fresno, Calif. (fashionablybombed.com).
One is a fashion expert; the other a former New York City bartender. They come up with clever ideas for cocktails and offer suggestions for what to wear while enjoying them.
Sure, they’ve got a candy corn martini just like everyone else. But nothing will frighten the little monsters coming to your door like this drink, which you can hold in one hand while passing out Kit Kats with the other. Check Wednesday's Food & Dining section for more Halloween cocktails.

2 ounces lychee syrup (from can)
2 ounces of any red berry-flavored liqueur (we recommend Okanagan’s Cherry Liqueur)
1 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 ounce vodka
1/2 ounce Irish cream
To a shaker add ice, lychee syrup, red liqueur, lemon juice and vodka. Shake and strain into a clear glass, and carefully pour Irish cream into glass on the back of a spoon. Garnish with a bloody eye (instructions below).

BLOODY EYEBALL GARNISH: Take a lychee and fill the hole with a teaspoon of strawberry jam.
Take a blueberry and push it into the hole, making sure to rub some of the jam into the cracks of the lychee.
Go make yourself a Bloody Eye Hemorrhage, and use your new eyeball to garnish it.
Here’s lookin’ at you!
