Halloween Cocktail Ideas

Halloween is almost upon us, so it’s time to celebrate a holiday that doesn’t really exist for any other reason than an excuse to stuff your face with candy and cart your kids around the neighborhood in cool costumes.

Once that’s all done though, why not invite the adults over for a party and surprise—or scare them—with some delicious Halloween inspired cocktails.

Here are some ideas for you:


Get it? Morgue? Sounds a bit eery right? And who doesn’t love a good margarita? You’ll need good tequila though. Luckily, we’ve got you covered.

To bring this concoction to life, you’ll need corn syrup and green food dye to make some lovely ‘goo’. Then take glasses, chill them in the freezer, and dip the rims in said goo.

Now, mix tequila, triple sec, and freshly squeezed lime juice, pour one teaspoon of the maraschino cherry syrup into each glass, then add the booze on top.

Mr. Hyde Potion

Someone’s bound to come dressed as Mr. Hyde, and this drink is a salute to them. Heat one cup of sugar with one cup of water, then add tarragon and simmer for 10 minutes. After, remove the tarragon then cool the mixture.

Then, take parfait amour liqueur, blackberry liqueur, and some freshly squeezed lime juice, and shake with ice until cold. Now it’s ready to pour. Finally, spear two blackberries each with sticks of lavender and arrange these on top of the glass. And, if you’re feeling fancy, add some dry ice on top for a steamy finish.

Poison Apple

Don’t worry, this one won’t kill you, just make you quite drunk if you have more than one. This is a sweet and sour mix, with a dash of champagne to add some fizz and sophistication. Place vanilla vodka, orange liqueur, sour apple liqueur, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker and infuse a liberal amount of ice to the mix, shaking until nice and cold.

Then, take glasses, dip the rim in sugar, pour the cocktail, and top off with some champagne. Once again, to add a little flair, dry ice could be added.

Black Magic Halloween

For those with a little darkness in their soul, this is the perfect drink—a tasty blend of orange juice, triple sec, and black vodka.

Mix everything but the black vodka in a shaker with ice, and pour into a glass. Next, place a spoon over the glass—back side up—and slowly pour the black vodka over, so it layers nicely on top of the cocktail. Then, for a little spookiness, dip half an orange wedge into the blackened mix and then affix to the rim of the glass.

Bloody Brain Shooter

We like to save the best for last—and we think it happens to be these rather foul looking, but oh so tasty, shooters. Shake vodka and lime juice together, then strain into a shooter glass. Then, with a straw, mix some Bailey's Irish Cream into the shot.

To get this right the straw needs to be submerged with the Baileys inside it, then you need to put your finger on top and slowly pull the straw out. The Baileys will promptly curdle giving you the lovely little brain chunks. To finish, add a little Grenadine for blood.

And there you have it. Happy Halloween!
