Pomegranate Blood Splatter Cocktail

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.
