Devil In A Blue Dress Cocktail

Well, it is time to put up some Halloween Posts!

I’m gonna have to break it down a little bit.  If I didn’t my Halloween post would be so long it probably wouldn’t load up on your computer screen.   I think I must have taken around eighty shots to capture all the Halloween madness around here.

Where in the heck did October go?  Is anyone else feeling like it was just July?  I think that’s a sign of me getting older, the time just keeps flying by.

Speaking of flying, if you need a Hallow’s Eve cocktail that will have you air bound, you’ve got to try this one.  It packs a serious punch and is such a wicked blue, that it’s sure to please any Halloween ghoul.


It’s a Devil in a Blue Dress.

Like most cocktails, it’s simple to make.

And if you are into that sorta thing, you can make this without alcohol and have yourself a mocktail.  This is for you, Rosann!

Can I tell you something funny?  It is really, reeeeeally, hard to take a good photo of a drink.  Every time I tried, you could see a reflection of me taking the picture in the liquid.  I seriously almost gave up on the whole thing.  Instead I drank two of these and tried again.  That seemed to help out a great deal, go figure.

So you will have to excuse me if this isn’t my best photography.  It seems a little alcohol buzz at noon does not help with camera shake.  I think I need to invest in that tripod I’ve been thinking about.


We’ll talk more about that fabulous table setting this is sitting on in an upcoming post.  I think it’s the best table I’ve done yet.

In the meantime, please make yourself a little cocktail and take a moment for yourself.  Life is short.

Devil In A Blue Dress Cocktail


  • 2 ounces Blue Hawaiian Punch
  • 1 ounce Curacao
  • 1 ounce coconut rum
  • 1/2 ounce pineapple juice
  • 1 ounce lemon-lime soda
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 maraschino cherry


  1. Combine everything but the soda and the cherry into a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Shake, baby, shake-like ya mean it.
  3. Pour into your favorite 6 ounce glass.
  4. Top it off with a splash of soda and a cherry.
  5. To make this devil a virgin, just omit the Curacao and use 1 more ounce of Hawaiian punch. Omit the Rum and use one more ounce lemon-lime soda.
  6. You can also make this in a giant serving-just keep the ratios the same and store it in a pitcher. Wait to add the cherries and the soda as the drinks are poured. This will keep you from having to act as a barkeep all night!
