    Add absinthe to the classic gin martini and you will have the gorgeous and powerful obituary cocktail.

    If you are unfamiliar with the taste of absinthe, this classic cocktail may take some getting used to because it has a very strong anise flavor. This is also not the tamest of drinks and it may be best to limit yourself to one; take the name as a warning.

    This drink is a sweet and easy vodka cocktail that can quickly become a favorite mix for any occasion. It is the garnish, however, that gives the mad eye martini that creepy Halloween vibe.

    The eyeball garnish looks disgusting but you will be surprised at how delicious it is. It's made with lychee, red fruit preserves, and a blueberry and it is the perfect complement to the Hpnotiq-vodka-lychee cocktail it adorns.

A drizzle of grenadine finishes off this fruity drink in bloody style.
