Halloween is that time of year where us adults can dress up in costumes, go to haunted houses, and consume copious amounts of candy with no parental supervision. It also means parties, and nothing makes for a great party more than an awesome drink selection. Here are 5 drinks you can try at your next spooky soiree.
2 Oz Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, or any dark rum
12 Oz Mountain Dew Voltage
Mountain Dew has been used in cocktails for some time now, mostly with tequila and gin. This drink however, uses Mountain Dew Voltage, the raspberry citrus version of the soda. Pour 2 ounces of Captain Morgan over ice, then add the Mountain Dew. The blue soda will make the drink green, which is great for the occasion.
Pomegranate and Tequila Cocktail
4 Oz white tequila
2 Oz triple sec
½ cup pomegranate juice
There’s nothing scary about pomegranate and tequila, in fact its pretty heavenly. It’s the drink’s color that makes it a scary good addition to your party. Mix the tequila, Triple Sec, and pomegranate juice into a shaker, then pour over ice. Mix club soda to finish off the drink. This recipe is for a single drink, but you can modify the amounts to make a big bowl of punch.
2 oz tomato juice
1 ½ oz vodka
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp of Tabasco sauce
1 dash of ground pepper
The name says it all, this classic cocktail is great for any Halloween themed occasion. Simply mix the tomato juice, vodka, Worcestershire sauce, and tabasco in a shaker. Pour over ice, and stay away from mirrors.
3 oz Apple Cider
3 oz Pumpkin Beer
½ oz orange juice
Sliced oranges/apples (optional)
Fall means seasonal beer will start hitting the shelves, nothing tastes more like the season than pumpkin. Pour the apple cider and orange juice into an ice filled glass, then pour the pumpkin beer over, adding the fruit slices afterwards if you’d like.
2 oz Kahlua
1 oz vanilla vodka
1 oz Fireball or cinnamon whisky
Edgar Allan Poe’s classic poem comes to life in this dark, smooth, coffee cocktail. Mix the Kahlua, or any coffee liquor, with the vanilla vodka and cinnamon whisky. Pour over ice into a martini glass, ignore the rap-tap-tap on the door and enjoy!
