The month of October can only mean one thing, Halloween has landed! But why not try something different this year? We have just the thing… Launched 30 years ago in Florida and for the first time in the UK earlier this year, why not treat your guests to something completely different in the form of an Aloha 65 cocktail?
Beautifully and naturally crafted, Aloha 65 is vegan and made only from fresh ingredients and has no added colourants. It’s an all-natural, 27% ABV spirit or liqueur made from just six botanicals including pineapple, ginger, scotch bonnet chilli and nutmeg. The fruit, spices and herbs are balanced beautifully to give it a sweet, and spicy and herbaceous flavour profile with a nice little chilli kick.
Spice it up with our Aloha Mary – our take on the classic Bloody Mary, but with spirit of Aloha 65 and their Sun on a beach Hot Sauce.
Aloha Mary Ingredients (serves 1):
* 50ml Aloha 65 * Tomato juice * ½ a lemon, juice only
* Worcestershire sauce * Aloha hot sauce * Pinch of celery salt
* Pinch of black pepper * Ice * Lemon and celery to garnish
Fill a Collins glass with ice. Add Aloha, lemon juice and a few dashes of Worcester sauce then top-up with tomato juice. Stir using the celery stick and season to taste with the celery salt, pepper and of course a dash or two of Aloha hot sauce.
Or why not try our Aloha Vampire cocktail, super simple. If you feel like jazzing it up a tad, swap soda water for Champagne and rim the cocktail glass with red sugar which can be found in the cake decorating section of your supermarket, or just add red food dye to your granulated sugar, letting it dry overnight. Wet the rim of the glass and then roll the rim in the red sugar – comes out a treat! You can also garnish with a raspberry, pomegranate seeds or drop in some vampire teeth for a real surprise!

To make the cocktail, pour 30ml of Aloha 65 into each glass, followed by 100ml of Cranberry juice and a few ice cubes. Top with soda water and serve.
