Todd Thrasher of Restaurant Eve shared this recipe for his "Dexter"-inspired cocktail as a ghoulish option for at-home Halloween entertaining. I love how the sweetness of the pomegranate juice and pomegranate molasses is countered by their inherent tartness, and the Cardamaro imparts a pleasant, nutty flavor.

  • 2 ounces pomegranate juice, fresh if possible
  • 1 ounce fresh orange juice
  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 1/2 ounce Cardamaro
  • 1 egg white
  • Pomegranate molasses to garnish


  1. 1.

    Combine pomegranate juice, orange juice, vodka, Cardamaro, and egg white in the shaker and shake vigorously for 10 seconds without ice to emulsify the egg white.

  2. 2.

    Add ice to the shaker and shake until well chilled, about 15 seconds. Strain into cocktail glass. Garnish drink with drizzled pomegranate molasses and serve.
