ORANGE SCORPION MARTINI - Halloween Cocktail


The Orange Scorpion Martini is not something I made up, this is actually a variation of the famous Scorpion or Scorpion Bowl of Trader Vic fame.  I think there might be more recipes for this cocktail than there are scorpions wandering the deserts!  Even Trader Vic, who made the Scorpion Bowl famous, published three different recipes and not one of the published ones was the recipe he used in the actual cocktail he served in any of his restaurants (even the world of cocktails has it's trade secrets.)

While many of the recipes call for the almond flavored Orgeat Syrup and a brandy, this recipe uses Creme de Almond and Grand Marnier instead. Just another of the many recipes that abounds for this little cocktail with a sting!


Yes, I do suggest the
Scorpion Sucker as a garnish for this Halloween version - otherwise you're not scaring your party guests, you're taking them on a tropical vacation!
