Bloody Acai Halloween Cocktail

Whether you’re throwing a party this year, or just need something to sip on while dishing candy out to the trick & treaters, then this ‘Bloody Acai’ cocktail is for you. The acai berry puree gives it a deep rich purple colour (not to mention a serious antioxidant boost!), as well as a cloudy look to the drink that gives it that extra spook factor. If serving at a party, add edible red gel food colouring to the rim to make it look like blood dripping down…or leave it off for the faint of heart.

I’m super excited to finally have Açaí available here in Malta. It’s now available exclusively through Purple Pearl online here and in select stores on the island. More açaí recipes coming to the blog soon! It’s seriously delicious.

Bloody Acai Cocktail

Makes 2 Servings.


  • 2 tbsp frozen Acai puree
  • 3 oz vodka
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tsp sugar syrup or agave
  • orange bitters
  • sparkling water
  • red gel food colouring


Place a tablespoon-sized dollop of the acai puree into each glass.  Add a couple dashes of bitters, 1 tsp of the sugar syrup, and squeeze the juice of half a lime into each glass. Add 1.5 oz of vodka to each, and stir until the frozen acai puree has loosened. Top with sparkling water. If wanting to give it a “bloody” look, gently squeeze the red gel food colouring along the top rim of the glass, allowing it to drip down the sides by pooling the gel in blobs every 1-2 cm along the rim. Don’t forget to leave a space along the rim empty so you can drink it without staining your lips! Best served with a straw.

    […] Obviously Acai has enjoyed its fair share of smoothie spotlight. But having been in Malta the past few years, the Brazilian fruit puree hadn’t arrived onto the island until very recently, thanks to Purple Pearl Malta. Since their arrival, I’ve been experimenting with different ways to use it, including mixing it up in cocktails like here. […]
