Level up your Halloween celebration at home with themed cocktails that are even more creative than your costume. From scary to scrumptious, we’ve gathered some frightfully good options for you to sip on this spooky season.
1. Vampire Cocktail
If you like your Halloween extra gory, the Self Proclaimed Foodie’s Vampire Cocktail is the drink for you. This creative concoction features a syringe filled with raspberry puree, which looks chillingly similar to blood!
Make the “blood” ahead of time by blending raspberries and then straining them to remove the seeds. Then, heat the puree in a saucepan with sugar for about ten minutes to sweeten and darken the fruit. Transfer the puree to a container and store in the refrigerator to chill.
When you’re ready to whip up this spooktacular cocktail, grab a bottle of vodka and amaretto from your bar cabinets. Add your spirits to a shaker with ice, pour them into a chilled glass, and stir in club soda and orange juice. Top your cocktail off with a blood-filled syringe for the final (and frightening) touch.
2. Pumpkin Spice White Russian
If you put pumpkin spice on everything this time of year, you’ll scream for this fall-inspired White Russian recipe. According to Country Living, all you need for this latte-like libation is your favorite coffee liqueur, vodka, pumpkin pie spice, and heavy cream.
This creamy cocktail is to die for just as is — but add on the recommended honey rim dipped in gingersnap cookie crumbs, and you can just close the coffin door. We recommend enjoying this sweet treat with a cozy blanket while watching your favorite scary movie in the TV room.
3. Blood Orange Punch
Punches are great for small gatherings, because they’re simple to throw together and they double as decor. This Blood Orange Punch ticks both boxes with only four ingredients and its deep red color. We also love any excuse to pop a bottle of prosecco from our wine storage cabinet, and this punch is extra bubbly.
Whether Halloween is just you and your boo this year or you’ll be entertaining some family members in the backyard, you can whip up a batch of this quick and devilishly delicious drink. You’ll need a bottle of campari and a bottle of sweet vermouth from your bar cabinets, as well as five blood oranges (four for juicing and one for garnishing). Don’t forget those two bottles of prosecco you’ve been saving in your wine storage cabinet. In a large bowl, stir in the campari, sweet vermouth and orange juice. Then add in your prosecco, orange slices, and ice cubes, and serve yourself a glass of this bewitching beverage.
