Tim Burton


Patton and I are both pretty big Tim Burton fans... particularly his animated movies. They are the perfect combination of sweet and spooky, and they always have such great soundtracks.

"Frankenweenie" comes out this Friday, and I can't wait to see it. It looks like just the movie to put me in the mood for Halloween.

Here are some whimsically weird Tim Burton inspired items from around the web:

And here are three Burton-esque cocktails from the Queen of Halloween, Martha Stewart...

Martha Stewart Drink Recipe

2 ounces black vodka
2 ounces creme de cacao or coffee-flavored liqueur
1 scoop vanilla ice cream
Pinch of finely grated nutmeg, for garnish

In a glass, combine vodka and creme de cacao, and set aside. Place a scoop of ice cream in a highball glass, and slowly pour vodka mixture over ice cream. Garnish with nutmeg; serve immediately.

Serves 1
1/4 cup ice
1/2 cup freshly squeezed tangerine juice
1 1/2 ounces black vodka
1 black licorice twist, for serving

Place ice in a tall glass. Pour juice into glass. Pour vodka over the back of a cocktail spoon into glass so it sits on top of juice and creates a layer of black. Slice 1/4 inch off each end of licorice, and use as a straw. Serve immediately.

Serves 1
1 cup ice
1 ounce black vodka
2 ounces cherry juice
Fresh raspberries and blueberries, for garnish

Combine ice, vodka, and cherry juice in a cocktail shaker; shake vigorously. Pour into a martini glass. Thread raspberries and blueberries onto a cocktail skewer, and place in drink. Serve immediately.
