Take a sip from the witch’s cauldron this Halloween with the ‘Death of a Samurai’; a deliciously original cocktail from the expert mixologists at San Carlo Fumo.

With Midori liqueur as a base, alongside a mix of tequila and fresh lime juice, the drink is given a final spooky flourish of red ‘blood’ around the glass – perfect for a party this All Hallows’ Eve.  So why not come down and try it?



  • Midori
  • Excellia Reposado Tequila
  • Pistachio sugar
  • Fresh lime juice


Mix all ingredients, shake with ice and strain into a coupette glass.



To make the ‘blood’, combine 3:1 parts caster sugar to water, 100ml vanilla essence, 100ml red food colouring and 4 x drops of Tabasco sauce and bring to the boil.

Leave to simmer on a low heat for 5-10mins before allowing to cool naturally and then placing in the freezer to firm up before using it to rim the glass!
