Arizona and California are announcing increased Halloween DUI patrols. They same will occur in Washington State as well. The Seattle Police DUI Squad and the Eastside DUI Task Force will be out in force. I suggest you do not drink and drive at all. The field sobriety tests are already hard enough. Imagine performing a One Leg Stand while dressed as Optimus Prime, Wonder Woman or Master Chief from Halo. Not pretty.
Most Halloween parties will offer unique specialty drinks which may be very tasty, but can rocket your blood alcohol levels well beyond the legal limit. The following Halloween drinks will require a designated driver:
Don Julio Anejo, pineapple juice, sour mix and triple sec.
Smirnoff Blueberry Flavored Vodka, cranberry juice and sour mix. Shaken and strained into a shot glass.
The Pirate’s Poison
Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum and Cola.
Cuervo Gold, Grand Marnier, sweet and sour, and fresh lime. Blend with ice.
Tanqueray Rangpur Gin, 3 ounces of red grapefruit juice, and lime juice. Serve over ice.
Smirnoff Strawberry Flavored Vodka and cream served over ice.
Captain Morgan Parrot Bay Pineapple Rum and Coconut Rum shaken over ice with orange juice and grenadine.
Smirnoff Blueberry Flavored Vodka, tonic, cranberry juice, and a squeeze of lime shaken with ice.
Curse of the Black Pearl
Captain Morgan Tattoo and Smirnoff Vanilla Flavored Vodka on the rocks.
Chopin Vodka and a splash of vermouth shaken into a martini glass. Then ass bleu cheese stuffed olives.
Midnight in Paris
Two ounces of Hennessy Cognac, 1 oz. of triple sec, and 1 oz. fresh lemon juice shaken over ice.
Two ounces of Belvedere Vodka 1/4 oz. of peach schnapps and 1 oz. of pineapple juice served on the rocks.
All of those drinks do not mix with driving. A good rule to follow: DO NOT DRINK HARD ALCOHOL BEFORE DRIVING.
