A Brief Description of This Alien Brain Hemorrhage Cocktail Recipe

A Creepy drink to look at that looks like a floating brain but is delicious to sip on.

So that meant I had to drink all four trial runs, lol.

No one wants to think of complicated drinks and shots when planning for a party, especially on busy weeknights. In terms of ingredients, I think this one is pretty simple.

Pour schnapps, (you can even use strawberry schnapps) a few blue curaçao drops, a bit of Irish cream, top with a splash grenadine and you are good to go. No extra ingredients are needed.

Tips For Making Tasty Shot Shooters

  • Slowly pour the Baileys Irish cream in, this will give it the brain look. If you pour it in too quickly you will find it will mess up the look.
  • Use any style of shot glass you want. The goal is a clear glass that way you can see the look of the shot.
  • Make as many or as few as you would like to serve up your friends and family.

Can I make these in advance?

These are best to be made right before serving, that way you get all the colors looking defined. You will find the drink can separate a bit if they are set too long.

What does this Alien Brain Hemorrhage taste like?

Despite the creepy look of this drink, you will find it tastes really delicious.

It is bursting with fruity flavor and a creamy component from Bailey’s Irish cream in it.

This does carry a kick of booze.

Does the alcohol need to be chilled in this shooter?

You don’t have to refrigerate the alcohol but I do prefer it that way. You will find it has a better flavor when all your alcohol and syrups are chilled.

Can I change up the schnapps used in the drink?

You can change from peach to another fruity flavor of what you would like. I like the peach as it stands out quite a bit in the drink. But if you don’t enjoy peach you can swap it with a different flavor.

Is this a strong Halloween shot?

Yes, it is very strong as it has multiple alcohols inside. So make sure that you don’t take too many, and drink responsibly.

How to Drink this Halloween Cocktail Shot

When drinking this shot, you want to down it as fast as possible. The reason is that it turns into a brain hemorrhage jell and if you stop in the middle of it, you won’t want to drink the rest of the shot drink.

Anita’s Original Brain Hemorrhage Shot Variations

I know you are probably thinking who the heck is Anita? It’s actually a reader that submitted their own version of the Alien Brain Hemorrhage Shot which includes Coffee liqueur instead of Blue Curacao.

You can make some variations to this recipe such as rimming the top of the shot glass with heavy syrup and black sugar to give it a spooky effect.

Part of the appeal is there are many different names for this shot and ways to make this Halloween party shot. This is only one variant of the brain hemorrhage shot.

Some call it a monkey brain shot, Irish car bomb, brain cells shot, brain tissue, and many others.

The best thing about this particular recipe is you can get away with using a dash of blue curacao and a tiny amount of grenadine and it’s a great Halloween drink.

Serve this up at your next Halloween party and let me know what everyone thought of it.
