The flavor profile of this spooky cocktail is full of tricks and treats. The Monster Mash is herbal, sour, sweet, AND spicy all at the same time. Its slight green tint makes this drink a perfect fit for any of your Halloween festivities. It is truly a delicious abomination.
2 3/4 (about two shots) vodka [we used Absolut Elyx]
1/2 oz of fresh lime juice
3/4 oz simple syrup
