The Vampire Injection

We begin our Halloween celebration.  For the month of October we’re focusing our attentions on the darker side of comics. This week we are discussing the Alaskan Vampire book 30 Days of Book.  A failed screen play, turned into a comic, then optioned for a movie.  Cause that’s how Hollywood works kids.  


This yields 4 cocktails.  Cause why would you want to drink just one of these....or I guess you could have drinks with 3 friends...I don't play well with others.


  • 2 cups raspberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 4 oz vodka
  • 2 oz amaretto
  • 2 oz orange juice
  • 6 oz club soda
  • 4 plastic syringes


  1. Puree the raspberries in a blender or food processor. Press the puree through a fine mesh strainer to separate the pulp from the seeds. Discard the seeds.
  2. Combine the puree with the sugar in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Stir frequently and cook until mixture darkens and thickens, about 10 minutes. Chill until ready to use.
  3. Add vodka and amaretto to a shaker with ice and shake the shit out of it.  Stir in orange juice and club soda. Pour into iced glasses.
  4. Fill syringes with equal parts of the raspberry syrup and place in glasses before serving.

This drink is a little bit of a mystery. Mainly because Todd never gave me the exact measurements.  It looks tasty, I'm not sure how much of what.  But please experiment, and if you find a good ratio, let me know.
