Quick Halloween drinks suggestion

So we've had black chicken for Halloween, how about black vodka? Doesn't this look fantastic? Cool, icy and sinister, just the thing for this time of year.

Blavod is a vodka I'm just come across that's produced in the UK. It's made from distilled molasses and coloured with extracts from the Burmese black Catechu tree. Available apparently since 2004, I have yet to find an Irish supplier but you can buy it online from

It costs £ 14.79 which I reckon is pretty good value. It's also had some good reviews so is certified not to be pushed to the back of the drinks cabinet the following day.


  1. Hey just found your blog on the IFBA website. Like it a lot.

  2. Hi found your blog through IFBA aswell, it looks great, altho not sure about the black chickens!! Look a bit strange. Just wondering as a fellow food blogger would you consider voting for me on cheffactor. Thanks Vick
