I’ve concocted quite a few ice cream shot recipes in the history of Sugar & Cloth. But I’ve yet to bust out any Halloween inspired ones.

Valentine’s day? Got you covered. Christmas? Love it so much I made two. This one and this one. A just because ice cream cake shot? Most definitely

And now… A Ghoul’s Guts Ice Cream Cake Shot recipe just for Halloween partying.

Ingredients Needed To Make Ghoul’s Guts Shots 

Almond milk (or your choice of milk)

Vanilla ice cream

Whipped cream

Mini un-iced vanilla cupcake — Optional: If you’d rather not have any texture to the milkshake shot, then omit the mini cupcake.

Creme de Cocoa — A sweet alcoholic liqueur made from cocoa beans with a hint of vanilla.

Simple syrup or honey — For the rims

Black sanding sugar — For garnish

How To Make A Mocktail Version of The Ghoul Guts Shots

If you prefer a non-alcoholic version of these Halloween shots, skip the Cream de Cocoa liqueur and add extra equal parts milk.

It’s just as tasty as an ice cream cake shot!
