Halloween Recipes - Blood Clots and Vampire Blood Cocktails

It's Halloween but there's still a little time left to get ready for the witching hour.

I have two frightfully ghoul-ish recipes for your today.

This is the last batch of Halloween recipes till next year.

Tomorrow, after all, is another day.

*****************
Blood Clots
OK, really cherry tomatoes tossed with spices - but don't tell anyone.
A ridiculously easy (and yummy) hors d'oeuvre but the thought of eating blood clots will gross out everyone.

Serves 6-8

1 (1 oz.) package ranch salad dressing mix (dry)
1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes

Put dry mix into a plastic bag. Rinse tomatoes. Shake off excess moisture but don't dry. (You need a little moisture to get the mix to stick to the tomatoes.) Place tomatoes in the bag. Shake to coat. Arrange on serving dish and serve with tooth picks.


Vampire Blood Cocktails
A Halloween version of the Bloody Mary. To be authentic, serve at blood temperature, 98.6 degrees.

For each serving:
Put ice (if desired) into a tall glass. Add 1 shot (1 oz.) vodka or gin (or to taste). Fill with V-8 juice, tomato juice or Clamato juice. Stir in horseradish and/or hot sauce, if desired. Garnish with a slice of lemon or lime.
