A frothy drink made with pineapple juice, heavy cream, cream of coconut, orange juice, and rum is sure to be tempting. But serve it in a red-rimmed glass and it's bloody fantastic for Halloween. The "blood" is made from corn syrup mixed with red food coloring, which tinges the classic pina colada with a devilish sweetness.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Pour the corn syrup in a shallow bowl. Dip a toothpick into the food coloring, and stir a very small amount into the syrup to combine. Hold a glass by the stem, dip rim into the syrup mixture, and turn glass slowly, coating entire rim. Turn the glass upright, allowing mixture to drip down sides. Dip the remaining glasses. Set aside.

  • Whisk together drink ingredients. Place 2 1/2 cups ice in a blender, and add 1 cup drink mixture. Blend until smooth; add more pineapple juice if mixture is too thick. Repeat with remaining ice and mixture. Carefully pour into prepared glasses; serve.

Cook's Notes

The "ghoulada" mixture can be made several hours in advance and chilled. The food coloring might give your lips a vampirish look.

JaymieR - just leave out the rum and then up either the OJ or pineapple juice content to maintain the desired thickness. (you can follow a similar technique for any alcoholic beverage to make it non-alcoholic)

I would love to see non-alcoholic versions of many of these drinks. Those of us who choose not to drink alcohol still enjoy fancy drinks. Thanks!
