“Champagne Showers”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]LMFAO[/lastfm]
For an LMFAO-themed party, really all you need is a lot of shots, animal print, gold chains, bare chests, and champagne. Champagne showers, that is!
- Animal print cake with “Sorry For Party Rockin”‘ written in edible gold paint
- Gold chocolate truffles. The more gold, the better!
- Champagne fountain?
- Popcorn “chains” dusted in edible gold.
Going with the Natalia Kills vampire theme in the video, you can make “clotted blood” rimmed cocktails.
Just add 1 1/4 ounce of absinthe to an absinthe cup and top with Tru Blood. Just the right bite to mask the caffeine that powers you through until the first light of dawn.
To complete the look add a little blood to your glass. The blood rim is made from the same kind of mixture as you use to make hard candy. It’s actually pretty easy, but you will need a candy thermometer (which you can find at most grocery stores).
* 1 c. Sugar
* 1/2 c. Karo Syrup
* 1/2 c. Water
* Red Food Coloring
* Cinnamon (optional)
Combine sugar, syrup and water. Cook without stirring to hard crack stage – which is 300 degrees F. Add food coloring. (Optional: Cinnamon may be added for flavor.)
Turn off heat. While the mixture is still hot, dunk the top of the cocktail glass into the mixture to create the red rim. If you need to do several glasses, keep the mixture hot so it lasts longer (instead of turning heat off, just reduce slightly).You can go anywhere from just along the very tip of the rim to part way down the glass – whichever you prefer. Flip the glass right side up to cool. The thick consistency of the mixture will cause “drips” as it hardens on the glass!
- Whatever you do this Halloween, have fun and make sure you stay safe! If you drink, don’t drive. Call a cab or crash on the couch of a friend you trust. Don’t leave you drink unattended and don’t ever take candy from strangers!
