HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Ghoulish Wine Cocktails and Wines

Looking for something absolutely ghoulish to drink up while waiting for all those trick-or-treaters?  Bet you never knew some of these drinks existed, and guess what?  They all include a sparkling wine!  Originally posted by VOGA Wines, you can really re-create these using any sparkling wine of your choosing.  Don't buy something expensive - as your mixing the bubbly with other flavors, it's best to get something on the economical-savvy end!

Bride of Frankenstein
4 oz. sparkling wine
1 oz. raspberry liqueur
1 oz pineapple juice
raspberries for garnish

Pour raspberry liqueur and pineapple juice into Champagne flute.  Top with sparkling wine, and garnish with raspberries

Vampire's Kiss
1.5 oz unflavored Vodka (or Gin if you prefer)
1.5 oz sparkling wine
3/4 oz grenadine
red sugar for glass rim

Rim the glass with red sugar (get rim slightly wet and dip in sugar).  Pour chilled Vodka (or Gin) and grenadine into a martini glass.  Top with sparkling wine.

Not in the mood for a wine cocktail?  Why not try a spooky black cat Riesling from the Mosell (Germany)?  Each bottle sells for about $12.  Don't like black cats?  OK - there are many colors to choose from!
