Zombie Bite Red Moscato Cocktails for #SundaySupper

Zombie Bite Red Moscato Cocktails

Scary Halloween is my jam. I’ve talked before about how I could easily forego all of the cutesy things in place of horror and creep. And that goes for everything, from décor to movie viewing. I’ll sit and watch The Conjuring any day. In this house, that might even mean sitting and watching it alone (and then regretfully staying up all night, alone, because you are an idiot and watched it by yourself. This may or may not have happened recently).

That’s the fun thing about being an adult. You can make these ridiculous choices to do things like watch scary movies or pig out on candy at 3 a.m. while awake because you watched scary movies. No one can tell you to stop (except maybe a concerned family member who thinks you are gross because you just ate a full-sized candy bar in the middle of the night).

As an adult, you also get the chance to imbibe in fun, scary-themed Halloween eats and treats. For Sunday Supper this week, Gallo Family Vineyards asked a bunch of us to come up with some spooky, horror-filled and creepy wine-laden goodies. Let me be honest here and say thinking of something was no easy task. My mind was buzzing with ideas from the moment I received the challenge and I really had to reel it in and pick one thing. Red wine – and Gallo has a huge variety to choose from – is the perfect canvas for scary Halloween.

I went with Zombie Bite Wine Slushies because let’s be honest, zombies are awesome when it comes to scary. A deadened shell of what humans used to be. And with the return of the super scary Sunday night tv recently, they are back in the foreground more than ever. These delicious slushies are just the ticket for a scary movie/tv viewing party. I used Gallo’s Red Moscato and mixed it with some frozen strawberries and mango, plus a little lemon juice to cut through the sweetness. And just for an added bit of fun, I went and bloodied up the glass rim. The technique – corn syrup and red food dye – is so simple and the end result is horrifyingly perfect for a creepy Halloween cocktail.

  1. I am totally in love with this cocktail! Being a zombie freak (I <3 TWD), they are right up my ally!! Oh and I completely understand what you are saying about watching scary movies a lone and then staying up all night because you are creeped out. My guy works nights and I never learn!

    • YES! The Walking Dead! My favorite! But I do the same thing, stay up watching it alone and then jumping at every single sound I hear, thinking it is something bad. It’s the worst!

  2. Mangos and strawberries! Delicious! This sounds so summery, but the red moscato makes it seem more appropriate for fall… Ah whatever, I’d drink this any time of year!

  3. We’re big Walking Dead fans in my house too – these drinks are great! I did a “Zombie Tequila” with the dripping blood too. Great blog, glad I found it! And my wife agrees, if Daryl dies we’re out.
