Ghostbusters Cocktail with Vodka (and Ectoplasm!)

I’m really excited to see the new Ghostbusters movie! Kristen Whig and Melissa McCarthy are two of my favorite actresses – for obvious reasons . . . they are hilarious.

Plus I gotta give complete street cred to the 1984 and 1989 movies; those were a crucial part of my childhood.

In my family, we quote a lot of movies regularly, and the original Ghostbusters is part of that rotation. “Don’t cross the streams – that would be bad.” “Nice shootin’ Tex!”

As a tribute to the new movie recently released, we put together this fun Ghostbusters cocktail. It has the consistency of ectoplasm and is perfect for a movie celebration or viewing party.

These fun vodka cocktails feature the Hi-C Ecto Cooler, which is an essential part of any Ghostbusters cocktail in my opinion. Surprise your Ghostbusters loving friends with this easy-to-make (and tasty and alcoholic) drink!
