Vampire Shots

A fun way to show off to your party guests at your next Halloween Party is to serve these vampire shots in prosecco or champagne. These bloody syringes are filled with raspberry jam that we made with fresh raspberries and sugar. If you are doing a themed party, a popular alternative to jello shots are these non-alcoholic raspberry syringes. It is a great way for both adults and kids to have fun. The kids can have the vampire shot in lemon-lime soda, and for the adults these are a great addition to a shot of vodka, or a flute of prosecco or champagne.
