The Ghosty Goblet

Happy Halloweeeeeeeen (insert creepy voice)… this is my favorite holiday. Yes, because of the candy. Now shut up.

I often get distracted by shiny things, and this drink was no exception. Any, ANY reason to use a glow stick and I’m in.

The Ghosty Goblet… run before they get you!

There’s a little more than my usual # of carbs in this drink, and that’s entirely due to the Hypnotiq liqueur. That stuff is really damn good and that’s because it’s got a SHIT TON of sugar in it. I wanted to use it for the flavor & amazing color, so I just cut the amount I used to keep the suger content lower. I also decided to cut the diet Sprite & add some sparkling water and lemon (acid) to balance the sweetness of the drink because I found that 4 oz of diet Sprite was just too sweet for me. You can play around with amounts of everything to find the right balance for your palate.



  • 1.5 oz vodka
  • 0.75 oz Hypnotiq liqueur
  • 3 oz diet Sprite
  • 1 oz sparkling water
  • Slice of fresh lemon
  • Optional but highly recommended: Glowstick


  • Pour all ingredients into cocktail shaker (including squeezing lemon slice) & mix well.
  • Pour into martini glass (or an appropriate chalice) & add glowstick.
  • Avoid zombies.
