Cocktails at UNC's Carolina Inn: Spooky Dragon Eye Martini Recipe

Halloween Cocktail Recipe; The Dragon Eye Martini from the Carolina Inn
Make the Dragon Eye Martini at home
The Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill, North Carolina turned 90 last year. There's a lot of history within those walls. I love to go to the Carolina Inn just because it feels so Southern. I was there recently for the special Aviator Brewery Dinner, which was a lot of fun.

Love a Southern porch. Who's that handsome man in a Carolina Blue shirt? I claim one. Look, both men are checking email or the weather. 

The Carolina Inn is reported to be haunted. I've been told that Dr. Jacocks is quite the friendly ghost. Personally, I don't care to find out. Here's some advice if you get spooked easily, don't ask for room 256 because you may not be alone. Dr. Jacocks, the Inn's beloved ghost, loves to lock guests out of their room. You see, he lived at the Inn for 17 years after his retirement. I don't blame him. I like room service, too.

The Carolina Inn has fun with this story. It serves a special Halloween dinner every year and even offers guests special spooky overnight packages. A fun cocktail is The Dragon Eye. 

If you can't travel to the Carolina Inn in person, you can make this craft cocktail at home.
