Just in case you don't have enough Halloween-themed cocktail recipes, here's another! The trick-or-tini is a twist on the classic martini. With its fun name and Halloween hues, this candy corn lookalike is a dessert in itself. Heavy whipping cream, juice, and banana liqueur are carefully layered to make this festive cocktail.

To prevent mixing when layering liquors, be sure to pour superslowly with a steady hand over the back of a big spoon. Want to make this tonight? Get the recipe when you read more

Achieving the layered effect takes time and practice. Make sure the ingredients are well chilled. Tilt the spoon at an angle, and make sure it touches the side of the glass before pouring. For better control, use a liquid measuring cup to slowly pour each ingredient over the spoon.
