If you’re a fan of the Twilight series, you’re probably mourning the end of the saga, but also looking forward to seeing the last installment. Breaking Dawn – Part 2 premieres this Friday the 16th and if you’re hoping to commemorate the event, you might as well have some Twilight-themed cocktails to make the experience authentic.
Vampire Blood MartiniRecipe
1.5 ounces vodka
1.5 ounces pomegranate juice
1.5 ounces blood orange juice (1 blood orange)
1 tablespoon agave syrup
1 lime wedge
Mix all the ingredients in a martini shaker with ice and pour into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with pomegranate seeds and sugar coated blood orange slices.
The Bella EdwardRecipe
The Sorrento Hotel in Seattle created this drink a few years ago for the original Twilight movie, so we’re not sure if it’s served there anymore… but we do know their recipe still lives on through the fans.
Balsamic reduction
1 teaspoon raspberry puree
2.5 ounces raspberry vodka
0.5 ounce Krupnik Honey Liqueur
Line the inside rim of a well-chilled martini glass with the balsamic reduction. Add the raspberry puree to the bottom of the glass. In a shaker, combine the raspberry vodka and honey liqueur with ice. Shake well and pour into glass.

3/4 ounces simple syrup
