9 Spooky Halloween Cocktails!

Awesome collection of spooky Halloween cocktails!

Hi all my little Halloween hostesses! So if you’re having a Halloween party, you need to have one of these spooky Halloween cocktails. It’s sort of a must. Unless it’s a kids’ party, of course (in which case number 2 is for you – yum!). Which Halloween cocktail to serve? These are my top 9 favorites. I’m a wee bit partial to number 6 since it’s my own, but all these tasty concoctions are spook-tacular! I especially love number 8’s floating spiders. I’ve also seen people freeze the plastic spiders into ice cubes too. How cool? If you really want to go all out, grab some dry ice (you can often find it at a grocery store if you ask).

1. Weeping Woman Cocktail

2. Witches Brew  (This one is non-alcoholic making it perfect for the whole family)

3. Vampire Blood Cocktail

4. Black Widow Martini 

5. Mr. Hyde Potion Cocktail 

6. Spooky Skull Cocktail

7. Halloween Candy Corn Cocktail

8. Spider Orange Cocktail

9.Black Magic Halloween Cocktail

Can’t choose a fave? Set up a Halloween Cocktail Bar at your party! Set up a side table or card table with black fabric. Set out liquors, mixers, and decorative elements (spiders, straws, etc). Display a “menu” with recipes so guests can whip up their favorite of the spooky Halloween cocktails! It’s a wonderful way to encourage guests to mingle (“excuse me, will you pass the eyeball gummies” and less work for you as the hostess since you won’t have to play bartender! Win-win.

how to make pecan pie brie bites

I love this recipe, y'all! Love it! It's technically a dessert but totally passes as an "appetizer" too. It's fall-flavored for upcoming parties and ready in minutes. I've always added jam or preserves over bites of brie, but the upcoming fall season needed a little redo of this popular treat. Pecan pie is a fave down south so I decided it would go over well with my friends and family. I was … { read more }
