Hallowe’en shots

Doesn’t this look disgusting?


Almost like a miniature brain contained in a formaldehyde-filled shot glass.

Any other day of the year I’d refuse to drink it, but give it a creepy name like Zombie Brains and serve it at a Hallowe’en party and I’m all over it.

Made with peach schnapps, irish cream, and grenadine syrup these shots are sweet. The curdled irish cream gives is the texture drinking a blood clot. Or a piece of grey matter. Whatever appeals to you more.

This recipe comes courtesy of my friend Zack who supplied the shots for our Hallowe’en party last night. They were a hit.


Zombie Brain Shots


  • 1 oz peach schnapps
  • 1 tsp Baileys
  • 1/2 tsp grenadine


Pour the peach schnapps into a shot glass.
Carefully pour the Baileys on top so it floats.
Slowly add the grenadine syrup, it should sink to the bottom.

Bottoms up!
