What You’ll Need
- Tequila and Maraschino Liqueur: The base of the Bloody Eyeball Cocktail is a combination of tequila and maraschino liqueur. This creates a unique flavor profile that’s both sweet and tangy, with just the right amount of bite. The tequila adds a hint of spice while the maraschino liqueur brings in a touch of cherry sweetness.
- Silver Cake Shimmer: To give the cocktail a mesmerizing shimmer, we use a silver cake shimmer. This not only adds an eye-catching sparkle but also enhances the overall presentation of the drink, making it look more like a potion from a witch’s cauldron.
- Sweet and Sour Mix: To balance out the flavors and add a bit of tanginess, we use sweet and sour mix in the Bloody Eyeball Cocktail. This adds a refreshing twist to the drink while also making it more palatable for those who prefer less intensity.
- Gummy Eyeballs: The gummy eyeball garnish is the star of the show. They add visual appeal and an eerie touch to the cocktail. You can easily find these edible eyeballs at most grocery stores or make them at home with gelatin molds. They make a perfect garnish for this spooky drink, giving it a look straight out of a horror movie.

What can I substitute for tequila?
If you’re not a fan of tequila, you can substitute it with vodka or white rum. However, keep in mind that this will alter the flavor profile of the cocktail.
