We’ve concocted quite a few ice cream shot recipes in the history of Sugar & Cloth.

But we’ve yet to bust out any Halloween inspired ones.

Valentine’s Day? Got you covered.

Christmas? Love it so much we made two — a peppermint one and a Christmas cookie one

A “just because” ice cream cake shot? Most definitely

And now… probably the best Halloween shot you’ll ever have — the Ghoul’s Guts Ice Cream Cake Shot recipe just for Halloween partying.

Luckily, ghosts have a tendency to fall in line with our all white color scheme here on the blog.

So we just went with it…

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.

It would just now be an ice-cream shot instead of an ice-cream cake shot.

You can use a pre-made store cupcake. Or we have an easy vanilla cupcake recipe here.

Creme de de Cacao — 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. You can use black sprinkles, but sanding sugar is smaller and finer so will stick to the rims easier.

Can You Make a Mocktail Version of the Halloween Ghost Shots?

Yes, you can easily make a non-alcoholic version of these Halloween shots.

Simply skip the Creme de Cacao liqueur and add extra equal parts milk.

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

We do recommend including the vanilla cupcake if you do opt for a mocktail version.

The kids will love it (because what kid doesn’t love cupcakes)?

Plus, it will give the shots additional depth and flavoring when you omit Creme de Cacao.

How to Make Ghoul’s Guts Shots

1 — In a blender, mix together all of the ingredients (almond milk, ice cream, whipped cream, Creme de Cacao and mini cupcake).

2 — For the shot glass rim, dip this glasses in the simple syrup or honey.

Then, dip the rims in black sanding sugar.

Make sure to cover all of the syrup or honey with sprinkles well so that it doesn’t bleed too much into the ice cream. 

3 — Fill each glass and serve immediately.

How to Make the Halloween Ghosts DIY Shot Glasses

For the temporary ghost faces, we used a quick little DIY trick from this post with window clings!

Just cut out the shapes for your eye and mouths. Lastly, just peel and stick them onto your glass.

The eyes and mouth don’t even have to be perfectly shaped.

And the best part is that this is all temporary. 

We discovered that it was easier first decorating the shot glasses before you rim and make the cocktail.
