10 Halloween Cocktails for Your Themed Bash
These Halloween cocktails are just the right amount of spooky.
Blackberry Sage Margarita
Herbal cocktails are some of our favorites, and this blackberry sage margarita is the perfect example. Smoke has become the latest cocktail trend in a variety of forms. This one is created using food-grade dry ice (just follow the usual precautions and don’t drink until it is dissolved).
Black Licorice Delight
For those that love black licorice, this is about to be your new favorite cocktail. A blend of blackcurrant liqueur and Pernod, this intoxicating drink is as strong as it is sweet. To turn these into Halloween cocktails, style as they’ve done here, with black ice cubes and a black sugar rim.
Pumpkin Butterbeer Hot Chocolate
If Halloween is just one more excuse for a Harry Potter marathon, we’ve got the drink for you! This pumpkin butterbeer hot chocolate (contain your excitement) is spiked with bourbon and decorated with butterscotch sauce.
Caramel Apple Sangria
Caramel apples are a Halloween staple, so try this caramel apple sangria if you want Halloween cocktails with lots of fall spirit. A couple glasses of this and your friends will totally be down for going to the pumpkin patch to wait for The Great Pumpkin.
Doesn’t this black cocktail give you a sense of foreboding? It gets it dark hue from squid ink, but if you prefer, you can use food coloring. This drink is a blend of spiced rum, Fernet Branca, and chocolate stout, so it’s definitely not for those that prefer their libations on the sweet side.
The Sleepy Hollow
The drink had us at its name. Just as alluring as the story of the Headless Horseman, this smoking cocktail has everything you need for a Halloween party. The smoke is achieved by lighting a sprig of rosemary.
The Red Riding Hood
This is a great cool weather cocktail because of its warm, earthy flavors. Those that like slightly herbal drinks but still want a little bit of sweet will love this recipe.
Smoky Tequila Cocktail
This white tequila cocktail isn’t outright scary, but it certainly has plenty of quiet intrigue. Made with white tequila, Grand Marnier, and a flaming orange twist, it will definitely creep up on you quickly.
Chocolate Chili Cocktail
Ever had chocolate tequila? If not, this is a tasty place to start. Mix Chili Chocolate Patron with lemon-lime soda for a drink that we promise isn’t as strange as it sounds.
Bourbon Citrus Sipper
If you are hosting a Halloween themed bridal shower, this cocktail is really good for a crowd. Just make your favorite spiced apple cider and add some lemon slices and bourbon.
