Bride of Frankenstein Cocktail – Vanilla Blackberry Champagne Cocktail

Out of all the Halloween movies there are, the Frankenstein ones are my favorite. From, The 1930’s original Frankenstein movies to  Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein to the oh so cheesy but awesome Young Frankenstein by Mel Brooks. One of my favorites is The Bride of Frankenstein. Her hair alone is just so fantastic.

 I just love the color of this vanilla blackberry champagne cocktail. So very Halloween.

I LOVE that World Market had these trays with photos of the original Frankenstein’s Monster and Bride of Frankenstein from the 1930s. Those were the best films. I highly suggest watching them if you haven’t. They really don’t make movies like they used to. I love old black and white films from the 30s and 40s.

So fun, so cheesy but so great because they didn’t have all the computers that they have today for special effects, editing etc.  It was all props and editing reels of film by hand which is such tedious and time consuming work, and yet, the movies are timeless and incredible.

The Frankenstein movie I have seen way more than any other is Young Frankenstein. And if you are a classic movie buff like I am you will love how much it parodied from the early 30’s Frankenstein films.   They are so corny and cheesy and full of puns. But I love them and I have to say Young Frankenstein is my favorite movie of his and, sadly, I quote it more often than I should.

Way more often. And if I find it on TV to watch I will always stop and watch it. I would say its a top 5 favorite movie of mine. 

Or we will be at a family dinner and say “mmmmmm” while eating and joke about making a yummy sound. In that scene they are eating a dessert that I have made for my blog.  Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte) also known as Black Forest Cake.

I have been having way too much photographing these cocktails all week. I decided for these ones to get some dry ice for a spooky effect and for a much less smoky house. The fog machine was awesome but it really fogged up the house and was pouring out the windows I was amazed none of my neighbors called 911 thinking my house was on fire. So I decided I am leaving that for outside use on Halloween, and dry ice it was for these cocktails.

I think from now on all my posts need to have dry ice in them. I love the effect. Although it might be weird for Valentine’s day or summertime recipes like for popsicles. OH wait that would be cool like the popsicles were extra frosty cold. Hmmm.

A few notes before the recipe:

  • This is a fairly simple recipe. I have update the recipe notes with a vanilla simple syrup recipe as well as notes on making larger quantities ( say for a punch bowl at a party)
  • If you can’t find seedless blackberry jam strain out the seeds before using. You can also sub with marionberry, blackberry or black currant jam. Strawberry jam would be good as well. 
  • Amount of prosecco/champagne depends on the flutes/glasses you use. I use 4-6 ounces per glass depending if I use larger or smaller champagne flutes. Measure your glasses with water first to see how much bubbly you need
  • Dry Ice – great for spooky effect, but not everyone wants to drink it. Nor should you. Make sure you get food grade if using it, don’t touch with bare hands, use tongs to drop small pieces into glasses. The ice will sink to the bottom and  give off that nice spooky, smoky effect. You can omit the dry ice or remove before drinking

Yield: 2

A spooky yet delicious cocktail for your Halloween festivities. Can be multiplied for more cocktails or a punch bowl.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp seedless blackberry jam (strain out seeds if you can't find seedless. Marionberry, boysenberry or black currant jam would work as well)
  • 2 tsp vanilla simple syrup** ( see notes)
  • 2/3 c good quality vodka ( I used Ciroc and Ciroc coconut)
  • Champagne, Sparkling wine or Prosecco (4-6 ounces per flute/glass - depends on size of glasses you use)
  • Garnish - fresh blackberries

Instructions

  • In a cocktail shaker stir together the jam and vanilla syrup until well mixed. Add ice and then then vodka and shake well.
  • Strain the mixture evenly in two champagne flutes. Top with prosecco. Garnish with blackberries and serve immediately.
  • Notes

    *For the vanilla simple syrup you can either use store bought ( Such as Torani syrup) or you can make your own. 1 cup sugar to 1 cup water - heat until sugar is dissolved then add in one tablespoon of vanilla extract. Chill completely before using, will last in the refrigerator in an airtight container ) I use a mason jar) for two week.

    If you use dry ice for your cocktails make sure you get food grade dry ice. Never touch with bare hands, use tongs. The dry ice will sink to the bottom of the drink, so it is safe to have in drinks, if you want to be extra cautious omit the dry ice or remove before drinking.

    ** to make a punch bowls servings worth go with equal amounts of jam and syrup - say a cup of each and use 4-6 bottles of prosecco or champagne. Stir the jam and syrup together well before adding in the bubbly. Add ice to punch bowl to keep chilled. You can also have the syrup-jam mixture in a container or bottle and add that to glasses/flutes then top with prosecco/champagne right before serving.

    I’m wondering approx. how much Champagne goes into each drink? I’ll be making this in a large batch, not just two at a time, so it would be extremely helpful to know that amount/ratio. Thanks!

      Hi I just updated the recipe. Check the notes for large batches of the cocktails. I measured the glasses I use and I use either 4 or 6 ounces of bubbly. Some of my glasses are a little smaller than others. And that isn’t all the way full. Measure your glasses with water and see how much you would want to fill. That is how I just measured my glasses. Thanks for your comment, I would love to know what ratios you go with for a large batch so I can add to the recipe notes!
