Halloween is the perfect excuse to play with your food (if you need an excuse that is!) so break out the weird and wonderful glitters and food colourings and let your imagination run riot!
35ml gin (or vodka if you prefer)
35ml lychee juice (from the can)
50ml pomegranate juice
sprinkle of red edible glitter
1 canned lychee
Simply put all the liquid ingredients into a cocktail shaker with plenty of ice and shake for about 10 seconds before straining into a martini glass, popping in your lychee and sprinkling with glitter.
Sticky Bat Wings:
1 kg Chicken wings
1 heaped tablespoon treacle
1 tablespoon maple syrup
pinch chilli flakes
1 teaspoon dried garlic granules
2 teaspoons dark soy sauce
1 heaped teaspoon minced ginger puree
freshly ground black pepper
black food colouring (about 2-3 capfuls)
Just mix everything together and leave to marinate (preferable overnight but at least 2 hours) then roast in an oven preheated to 200C for about 45 minutes whilst basting every 15 minutes with the juices from the bottom of the roasting tin.
