  • Preparation Time20 mins
  • Serves4
  • DifficultyEasy
40ml Bacardi
15ml cointreau
60ml pineapple juice
1 tbsp strawberry or raspberry puree
1) This vampire-friendly cocktail uses strawberry or raspberry puree to add streams of 'blood' down the sides of the glass.

2) Into a shaker with ice pour the rum, cointreau and juice. Shake and pour into a rocks glass.

3) Dip the end of a drinking straw into the puree, hold the tip of your finger over the other end and use the straw to squirt puree into the bottom half-inch of the drink, where it will sink in red blobs. Do not stir.
