Not to be outdone by "The Undead" and "Brain Dead," two Halloween hooches offered up by Hula's Modern Tiki in Central Phoenix, the Spotted Donkey Cantina at el Pedregal, the North Scottsdale spot of Southwest-Mexican cuisine, has created a scary cocktail of their own, and they're calling it, "The Cauldron."

Featuring ingredients like 3 Olives Purple Vodka, a cranberry/lime globule, a dry ice chip for the "smoke", and, oh yeah, a gummy worm or two, The Cauldron is available at the Spotted Doneky at el Pedregal now through Halloween.

Or, if you want to make one for your own spooky soiree, get the recipe after the jump.
