'Real Housewives' Melissa Gorga's Halloween Cocktails Are More Trick Than Treat

Melissa GorgaWant to party like a Real Housewife this Halloween? RHONJ Melissa Gorga has got you covered with her favorite "skinny" Halloween cocktails. And she must have come up with these recipes long before Superstorm Sandy hit, because poor New Jersey must have gotten the worst of that storm. Look what happened to the Gorga house!

But back to the Halloween cocktails, Melissa came up with some fun mixers using Voli Light Vodka -- and each one has just around 100 calories. Why Melissa, however did you make that possible? 


Well, Voli has about 20 percent to 40 percent fewer calories than most other vodkas, true. But it's also just 30 percent ABV (alcohol per volume), which this reviewer puts down to this secret ingredient: WATER.

Okay, now you know the key to low-calorie cocktails. And yeah, you could probably just water down your own vodka at home and get the same effect. Maybe a watery, low-ABV cocktail will actually make the morning after a little less ... SCARY for you and your guests! It's not such a bad idea, actually.

Melissa's cocktails include the "Cotton Candy" made with raspberry cocoa fusion vodka and Bailey's, "Vixen" with lemon vodka and apple flavors, and "Vamp" with that raspberry cocoa vodka again with raspberry liqueur and cranberry juice. So they're all still pretty sweet. They don't seem super Halloween-y to me. Maybe that apple one, a bit? Then again, no one is asking for pumpkin martinis, so good enough.

Are you serving any Halloween cocktails tonight?
