Inject some happiness into your drinks this Halloween with this immersive experience of a cocktail that could not have been easier to make at home.
~ 45ml Quokka gin
~ 30ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
~ 15ml grenadine or raspberry syrup
~ 90ml soda (or to taste)
Fill your syringe with the grenadine or red fruit sugar syrup of your choice. Fill a chilled highball glass with ice and add the gin, lemon juice and soda. Stir briefly. Pop the syringe into the glass like a garnish and serve, inviting guests to inject the ‘blood’-red grenadine into the drink!
Pro tip -
For the best flavour results, once the initial impact of the syringe has happened, we would encourage drinkers to gently mix the ingredients to combine.

~ 15ml vodka
~ 15ml rum
~ 15ml triple sec
~ 30ml lemon juice
~ 30ml simple syrup

In a mixing glass, muddle the strawberries with the lemon juice and simple syrup. Add the other ingredients with ice. Shake vigorously and pour contents into a tall glass. Garnish with strawberry.

How could we do a Halloween listicle and not include pumpkin? Get ready for the grooviest addition to the Sour family - it even screams October by its color, and all that cinnamon!

Put the first 4 ingredients in ice and shake for a minute, pour through a strainer into coup glass, garnish with cinnamon and thyme.
