Halloween Cocktail That Impresses – Potion de Muerto

Hornitos® Tequila’s mixologist, Christian Sanders of Evelyn Drinkery in NYC, has created a Halloween cocktail that looks as though “blood” is dripping down the sides of the drink. For those looking to create the recipe at home, it can be found below.

Potion de Muerto


  • 2 parts Hornitos® Black Barrel®
  • 3/4 part orange juice
  • 3/4 part lemon juice
  • 3/4 part chipotle agave *
  • 2 dashes orange bitters
  • 1/2 part beet juice

*Substitute agave nectar for chipotle agave if unavailable.


Serve in a tall glass over crushed ice with a beet juice float – the beet juice will slowly float down the glass through the crushed ice, making it look like blood dripping down. Garnish with an orange slice.
