I am having a party tomorrow to celebrate Friday13 and I want to make mixed drinks to go with a theme. I want to make variations one the recipes for redheaded sluts and bloody mary How can I go about this?

In honor of bad luck I will be showing "Repo! The Genetic Opera", because nothing says bad luck like an evil surgeon coming to reposes your organs. What can I do to make these drinks more sinister?

We are also planning a Friday13 (/purim/St.Patrick's Day) party tomorrow so I will definitely be watching the comments for suggestions. Apparently there's a drink called a Serial Killer, but it seems like you can find a drink called anything these days.

Another idea we had is to decorate the drinks table with tails-up pennies to symbolize bad luck.

You can substitute Blavod for your vodka in the Bloody Mary. Maybe that makes it a Typhoid Mary! I once heard a recipe for a drink called the "alien secretion": midori, pineapple juice, and glow stick juice. supposedly that stuff is non-toxic. I don't think I would drink it, but maybe just wash off some small glowsticks that aren't small enough to swallow and put those in the drinks as well.

I you'd consider serving wine, Zeller Swartz Katz is a great German wine & they generally tend to have pictures of scary looking black cats on the label.

After Jason Voorhees spent all that time stewing in crystal lake he began to taste pretty clammy. Use clamato juice in your bloody mary (now called a Caesar) to get that authentic taste of the living dead.

Since you have peach schnapps, you could get a small bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream to make the dreaded Brain Hemorrhage.

A shot glass full of Bailey's dropped into a glass of Guinness, then chugged, is called a Car Bomb, Car Crash, Irish Car Bomb, or something to that effect. Probably not the best use of either, but it might fit a bad luck theme.

Response by poster: I love all the drink name suggestions! I was thinking "scalpel sluts" and "Bloody Marnie's" and if all else fails I could just grab a bottle of this and call it Zydrate shots!

An Irish Car Bomb is a half shot of Jameson's plus a half shot of Bailey's dropped into a glass of Guinness, just to clarify. It is deadly and surprisingly tasty.

in the sluts, a couple drops of green food coloring might turn it to a dark brown/almost black. then you can make up and appropriate name.
