Drink of the Day: The Liquefied Ghost

October 20, 2015 | By | Add a Comment

To keep with the seasonal drinks, here is another cocktail brought to us by Crissa Vallen, a colleague of mine at Twiisted.  She has come up with six Halloween-themed treats and I am going to share each one of them with you as we venture through the week.


This cocktail is our best seller to date.  A creamy and surprisingly refreshing drink that seems to be the fan favorite as we venture through the month of October at our bar.  I will let you be the judge.  How can you go wrong with a vanilla vodka/rumchata combination anyway?  Adding a little chocolate powder to enhance it’s attractiveness wasn’t a bad decision by any means.

Enjoy your Tuesday, and enhance it, with this Halloween treat!  Scary good!!!
