All of Them Witches: The Vodka Blush Cocktail

Eight months until Halloween may seem too early to be party planning, but it’s always five o’clock somewhere, kittens. With the recent announcement that the 1968 horror classic Rosemary’s Baby is being remade as a four-part miniseries starring Zoe Saldana, I thought it would be the perfect time to feature this spooky little recipe from our friends over at Boy Drinks World – a simple concoction of vodka and pomegranate that skyrocketed to popularity in the 60’s after it appeared as the Satanic cocktail of choice in the original film.  Not only is this cocktail a clever choice for Halloween, it might be just the thing to make watching a Rosemary’s Baby remake palatable, darlings.

Tipsy Devil


2 1/2 ounces vodka
½ ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
½ ounce grenadine syrup

Fill cocktail shaker 2/3 full of ice and add ingredients. Shake and strain into chilled cocktail glass.

You can make your own grenadine syrup by combining equal parts sugar and slightly warmed pomegranate juice (POM 100% pomegranate juice is a good choice). Swirl to combine.

  1. I’m not sure even the drink could make me excited about this. I watch Rosemary’s Baby probably once a month. I’m sure I’ll watch it…but I’m not thriled.

    • Mia Farrow was perfect in that role – so tragically fragile. I have a hard time picturing ass-kicking Zoe Saldana trapped in a demon baby pregnancy without a means to escape.

      • Yes!!!
        I feel like this will be another re-make that was just “ehhh”
        I wonder if they are going to re-make it, for today, or the 70’s again. Part of the scare for me in living in a time without cell phones, or internet, to get ahold of people.

        I hope they at least do it justice. I felt like the Omen re-make was word for word, just newer. Lets hope for at least that much!

        • I just watched it the other day when we were talking about the cocktail and that was something that struck me – so much of Rosemary’s character development would be difficult to recreate in a modern setting. The symbolism of her dramatic pixie cut that was so extreme in 1968, for example, can’t possibly have the same impact to the story today. It will be interesting to see how they manage it – I hadn’t considered that they might keep it to the same time period.
