1/2 Photos of Pina Ghoulada
I got this recipe from the Martha Stewart website. With a twist to that favorite tropical pina colada cocktail, this becomes the perfect Halloween cocktail or mocktail for nearly any party theme. It's acceptable even for a kids party, because you can easily prepare the drink mix without the alcohol, and it's still a tasty beverage that most kids really like. All it is simply adding a twist to that all-time favorite cocktail (or mocktail)--the pina colada--by adding a "dripping blood" effect to the glasses. These will be the perfect complement to your Halloween buffet table.

- 1Pour the corn syrup into a shallow bowl.
- 2Dip a toothpick into the red food coloring, and stir a very small amount of the food coloring into the corn syrup; stir until it looks like blood.
- 3Hold one glass by the stem, and dip the rim of the glass into the red syrup and turn the glass to coat the entire rim.
- 4Turn glass upright. Allow the syrup to drip down the sides of the glass (to resemble dripping blood). Dip the remaining glass in the same manner. Set the glasses aside.
- 5To make the pina colada mix, whisk together the pineapple juice, cream of coconut, cream, orange juice and rum (if using).
- 6Place about 2 to 2 1/2 cups of ice cubes in a blender, and add 1 cup of the drink mixture. Blend until smooth. Add more pineapple juice (not more pina colada mix) if mixture is too thick.
- 7Carefully pour the pina colada mix into the cocktail glasses, being careful not to disrupt the "bloody" red rims.
- 8Repeat with remaining drink mixture and ice.
