Screams, laughs, naughty nurses, dudes in drag, and more drunks than you can shake a pitcher at. That's right, Halloween is almost here.

Some might say it's spirit that fuels the revelry, but we know it's really just alcohol. Here's the recipe for a drink that has the look and packs a punch.

The Brain Hemorrhage is made with:

  • 1 1/2 oz Peach Schnapps
  • 1/4 oz of Bailey's Irish Cream
  • 2 drops Grenadine

First pour in the Peach Schnapps, then slowly pour in the Bailey's Irish Cream, finish off with drops of Grenadine as desired for effect.

The order of the pours is important to this shot, and when completed they will create a coagulated, bloody, brainish look that you can drink yourself under the table with, and that has a peaches and cream type flavor.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
