Freak out your friends a little bit with this new drink. Sure, the name is definitely something to freak out about, but this drink will definitely be a good addition to all your Halloween-themed food for that party you’re hosting this season.

[pullquote]The bumbaclot is a rum-based drink that looks like someone bled on it.[/pullquote] While that sounds a bit gross, but it’s just for presentation.

For this Halloween Cocktail, you will need the following ingredients:

  • White rum – 4 ounces
  • Pomegranate liqueur (grenadine will also work just fine) – 2 ounces
  • Lime juice -1 ounces
  • Pomegranate molasses (strawberry jam is also a good substitute) – 2 teaspoons
  • Fresh ginger
  • And ginger ale

The bumbaclot is a fairly easy Halloween Cocktail to prepare. To start, pour a teaspoon of pomegranate molasses and let it settle at the very bottom of your glass. If you can’t find pomegranate molasses, you can easily substitute it with grenadine or jam.

Then, take a shaker and put in some ice in it. Add two parts white rum, one part pomegranate liqueur, and half a part of lime juice into the shaker. Shake them all together until the shaker is cold to the touch.

After mixing them together, take your glass (the one which you poured the pomegranate molasses in) and slowly pour in your mix. Do it in such a way that you don’t stir up the molasses at the bottom. Add a splash of ginger ale and freshly grated ginger on top.

By now, your bombaclot cocktail will look unappetizing yet will taste great. With the added effect of the jam or molasses at the bottom, it looks a little bit like blood clotting at the bottom of the glass. While this recipe will conveniently serve two glasses, just double the amounts and it can readily serve four or five more.
