Our friends at Fine Wine & Good Spirits sent us a bunch of spooky Halloween cocktail ideas. Since Halloween is our favorite holiday, we wanted to share with you. If you’re planning on entertaining, here are some fun drinks to serve your guests.
2 oz Crystal Head Vodka
1 oz blue curacao
½ oz black raspberry liqueur
1 lemon twist
Combine first three ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with lemon twist.
Deadly Pumpkin Martini
1½ oz Fireball Cinnamon Whisky
¾ oz Fulton’s Harvest Pumpkin Pie Cream
½ oz DeKuyper Hazelnut Liqueur
1 pinch nutmeg
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass and dust the top with more nutmeg.
1 oz. raspberry liqueur
½ oz. triple sec
½ oz. fresh lemon juice
½ oz. pomegranate juice
Black licorice strings
Add all ingredients (except licorice) to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until cold and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with eight licorice string “legs” to give it a creepy effect.
Pour all ingredients into a Collins or highball glass over ice, stir. Garnish with lime wedge.
Hob Nob Wicked Red Punch
1 750 mL bottle of Hob Nob Wicked Red
1½ cups Licor 43
2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice
2 Tbsp. orange zest
1 Tbsp. ground ginger
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
2 Tbsp. simple syrup
1 lime, zested.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl; refrigerate for at least one hour. If available, add a large block of ice to the bowl. Stir well before serving and garnish glass with a sugar rim and orange slice.
They all sound so frightfully good! Which one will you make?
