Our Spookiest Halloween Cocktails
Red Pepper Bourbon Glow
What better way to use gifted peper jelly than to spice up your cocktails? This beverage is sweet and sour with a sublte hotness. Serve a drink that is fun, different, and just plain smart at your next fall or holiday get-together.
Fancy a trip to the Wizarding World? This classic favorite drink of witches and wizards alike will be enough to put some magical pep in your step! This drink is a decadent, rich, and buttery experience. Top this popular wizarding beverage with plenty of homemade whipped cream before serving to family and friends.
What could be more fun than a cauldron full of seething, smoking sangria? It's delicious and wickedly strong (use more sparkling water if you want to dilute it a little). Although dry ice is not toxic, it's dangerous to swallow chips because of the extremely low temperature. Using a chunk of the ice, and wrapping it in cheesecloth, avoids that problem.
"Punch" is a good description of this one--a couple of glasses pack a wallop. Add extra cranberry juice if you want it weaker.
Drogon’s Breath Cocktail
In Game of Thrones lore, the dragon has three heads. And each would love to sate their thirst on this libation. A hint of bright citrus perfectly balances the rich earthy element the wine in this cocktail delivers. Refreshing, delicately sweet, and tangy, this drink if fit for a queen. Serves 1 Khaleesi
Brighten up winter happy hour or Sunday brunch with this citrusy cocktail. Leafy carrot tops lend an herby backbone similar to parsley, and blood oranges infuse a berrylike sweetness. Plus, this drink boasts half your daily vitamin A and more than a third of your daily vitamin C goal.
Fizzy hard cider and spicy ginger ale add a subtle effervescence. Start with chilled beverages so it's nice and refreshing, and consider adding a decorative ice ring to keep it that way.
Honey Cider-Beer Cocktails
The cider-honey base of this fall beverage makes enough for both adult and kid twists: one with pale ale, the other with sparkling cider. Beer and cider are refreshing and lower in sugar and alcohol than stronger potions, which tend to go down a bit too easily.
