Vampires have always been kinda’ funny to me. Monsters like the Werewolf and Frankenstein never scared me either.
The possessed, though, completely freak me out!
Maybe it’s because of The Omen, or old island talk of the supposed dark side of Obeah, people “catching power,” speaking in tongues and the like.
Either way, when it comes to Halloween frights, it is the possessed that scare me the most.
Like any other scaredy cat, I’ve decided to face my fears head on this Halloween by downing a few Demon Possession cocktails.
I’m also doubling the amount of Blue Curacao to deepen the blue hue, and topping it all off with a splash or two of Peychaud’s aromatic bitters to create a spilled blood effect.
To make it, mix all the booze together in a shaker, fill with lemonade, then shake, shake, shake. Next, strain your mix into a highball glass filled with ice. (A traditional Demon Possession calls for crushed ice, of which I’m not a huge fan. If you’re like me, regular ice will work just fine.) Finally, top with Peychaud’s and enjoy!
Armed with a drink this strong, I’m pretty sure I won’t feel any fear (or much of anything else) if I do come across anyone possessed by a demon this Halloween…
