No ghosts in this house, at least not tonight—there's a Ghostbuster in the house and it's time for a party!

This Ghostbuster cocktail is fun, simple, and filled with wonderful fruity flavors. The base is a combination of peach and melon liqueurs, which create a green background for the ghostly figure that appears when you drop a bit of Irish cream inside.

It's a ton of fun, quite the spectacle, and a great novelty for Halloween parties.

Ingredients

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Pour the peach schnapps and melon liqueur into a cocktail shaker with ice.

  3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

  4. Add the Irish cream drop by drop into the center of the drink.

  5. Serve and enjoy!

How Strong Is the Ghostbuster?

In order to gauge the strength of this cocktail, let's make a couple of assumptions. If you pour Midori for the melon liqueur and pair that with DeKuyper Peach Tree, the Ghostbuster would be a relatively mild 16 percent ABV (32 proof).

In terms of alcohol-only cocktails, that's pretty week and about half the strength of the average Vodka Martini.
