Five Wickedly Delicious Halloween Cocktails

Halloween is less than a week away and if you’re planning an adult Halloween party, let’s be honest- it’s not a party without some wickedly delicious adult beverages.  So to make sure your party goes down as the best ever, here are five wickedly delicious Halloween cocktails for you to give a try.

The Otesaga Spookytini

This drink comes to us from the Otesaga Resort Hotel (reportedly haunted by friendly spirits) right up the road in Cooperstown!

2 oz. apple-flavored vodka such as Stoli Gala Apple

1 ½ oz Ginger beer

Dash of cherry juice

Garnish: cherry-stuffed lychee nut, soaked in ginger brandy

Mix the vodka and ginger beer in a cocktail shaker with ice and serve in a martini glass. Garnish with the lychee nut soaked in ginger brandy. Pour the dash of cherry juice over the lychee nut and watch as the veins in the fruit soak up the juice, turning the nut into an “eyeball!”


The Conjuring

 

Everyone knows Halloween is about summoning the evil dead. Sipping this The Conjuring drink from Lucid Absinthe won’t accomplish that, but it’s fun to pretend.

1 oz. Lucid Absinthe

1 oz. White Creme de Cocao

1 oz. coconut milk

Drizzle of black sambucca

Combine Lucid absinthe, white creme de cocao, and coconut milk in a shaker filled with ice. Shake till frothy and strain into a short glass over ice. Drizzle black sambucca down the side of the glass until it floats on the bottom and diffuses through the cocktail.


Pina Ghoul-ada

You like that don’t you?  The creative play on words that names this ghoulish delight.

Skinnygirl Piña Colada

3 tbs. corn syrup

1/4 tsp. red food coloring

Optional: gummy eyeball candy for garnish

Pour the corn syrup in a shallow bowl and add a few drops of red food coloring. Stir with a toothpick to combine. Holding a martini glass by the stem, dip the rim into the syrup mixture, and turn the glass, coating the entire rim. Turn the glass upright, allowing mixture to drip down sides. Repeat for desired number of glasses. Pour chilled Skinnygirl Piña Colada into prepared glasses to serve.


Berried Alive

You’re going to love this wickedly fresh concoction from Todd Richman with Sidney Frank Importing Company.

2 parts vodka like American Harvest Vodka

4 fresh mint leaves

4 blackberries

4 raspberries

¼ part agave nectar

Ginger beer

Crushed ice

In a cocktail glass combine all ingredients except ginger beer and gently muddle. Add crushed ice and top with ginger beer. Garnish with a blackberry and raspberry on a cocktail pick and fresh mint sprigs.


Candy Corn Martini

What’s a Halloween without candy corn?  Pretty much nothing. But this year, you’re going to step it up a notch with candied favorite from Julie Cohn with A Little Bite of Life.

1/4 c. M&Ms white chocolate candy corn candies

1 c. Vanilla Vodka

1/2 Jigger (1 oz) Banana Schnapps

2 Jiggers (4 oz) Butterscotch Schnapps

About 4 oz. Crushed Ice

About 1 Tbsp Whipping Cream

The day before you’ll be making this cocktail, place the M&Ms and vanilla vodka in a small mason jar and let the candies soak overnight. To make each cocktail, strain 3 oz. of the candy-infused vodka into a cocktail shaker (you need to strain to remove any remaining candy bits). Add the banana schnapps, butterscotch schnapps and crushed ice and shake well. Strain into a martini glass and float whipping cream on the top.
