One of the most fun types of parties we get to throw or attend every year is a Halloween party! As kids, they were a super fun excuse to eat candy and dress up. As adults, they are…still a super fun excuse to eat candy and dress up. But, we can drink, too! So if you’re planning to throw a party this Halloween or if you’ve thrown one every year and need some new ideas, here are some themed cocktails to try out!
A Nightcap On Elm Street
Named for the famous horror film and combining the evergreen fall flavor of maple with the trendy flavor of cold brew, this boozy coffee-and-rum cocktail uses orange and bitters, maple syrup, and tonic for a unique and refreshing (and creepy) taste.
Zombie Mezcal Margaritas
These super-green margaritas with some eyeball-like decoration from The California Local are a great “zombified” version of a classic drink that’s perfect for Halloween. Use halved and pitted grapes or lychees with blueberries on a toothpick to create “eyes” that sit atop the drink, and matcha for the ultra-green color.
Created by Punk Rock Bar Cart, this blue creation inspired by a creepy hard-rock song is a fizzy, sweet drink that will refresh your guests while getting them in the Halloween spirit.
