I wanted to come up with a Haunted Mansion cocktail for my Haunted Mansion dinner party and decided on this Essence of Death Cocktail. My son came up with the name, it seemed to fit the theme well. This drink looks a bit gray and ghostly and is actually quite yummy. We also really liked the drink without the alcohol as well, but it won’t get that grayish hue.
