Nosferatu and the VampTini

This time in CruellasConcoctions we’re helping the new year-long series The Vault of Horror is doling out for the 90th anniversary of the classic F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu.  What better way to celebrate one of the best vampire films of all time but with a concoction as dark as Count Orlock himself. I give you—the VampTini.

How is it that this film still can effect us so profoundly, when so much of horror’s power is drawn from the unexpected? One would think that age would be the death knell of a great horror movie, and yet films like Nosferatu prove this to be dead wrong. Whether you’re discovering it for the first time all these decades later, or watching it for the 90th time, Nosferatu has the power to utterly creep you out. Personally, I credit it to the merits of German Expressionism.-The Vault of Horror.

Be sure to check out the award winning blog, The Vault of Horror, for further ghoulishly good reads in celebration of 90 years of Nosferatu!


  • 1 1/2 oz Finlandia Vodka
  • 1 1/2 oz Korbel Champagne
  • 3/4 oz Chambord
  • red sugar for rimming

Here’s how we do it up in the crypt; in an ice filled shaker pour vodka, champagne and Chambord. Shake and strain into a pre-chilled, red sugar rimmed martini glass. Guard your neck and enjoy! Viva la liquor and bottoms up, Kittens!
