8. Black Devil Martini
The Black Devil Martini is a real kick-ass Halloween drink. You'll feel so devilish while drinking it, as its name comes straight from Hell. Anyway, let's start with the decoration, as you'll need red sugar (red sprinkles) for the glass' rim garnish. Besides, any other drink in a red-coated glass will look suitable for the scary party.
As for the ingredients, this cocktail has only two - dark rum and dry vermouth. Moreover, this simple cocktail recipe will astonish your friend at the party, and it'll scare them even more if you place the fake vampire teeth candy in the glass.
7. Black Widow Shot
Another creepy drink so suitable for Halloween is Black Widow. Obviously, we're talking about the quick little shots you can serve at the party entrance. It mixes up quickly, so it doesn't require much time to prepare - it's black vodka combined with cranberry juice. So simple and yet so delicious!
The trick is in making it double-colored, as you can meet that by pouring cranberry juice into the highball glass. Then, cover it with the black vodka over the back of a bar spoon. Alternatively, you can create the swirl effect by sprinkling vodka onto the cranberry juice - the choice is yours.
6. Black Magic Margaritas
If your guests like margaritas, they'll appreciate the Black Magic Margaritas even more. Their seriously spooky look will most certainly attract attention. You can transform your favorite drinks into creepy ones with a few more steps, especially for Halloween. Play with food coloring and mix two or more different colors for the desired shade - it's up to you.
Nevertheless, you'll need red, green, and blue food colors for this recipe, which you'll have to mix to get a flawless look. Unavoidable impressive detail is a black glass' rim (coated with black sanding sugar or just sprinkles). The following step is putting ice and combining lime juice, silver tequila, and the triple sec. A perfect garnish idea for this drink is a slice of lime!
5. Bloody Mary
The Bloody Mary is a synonym for a spooky drink, and it differs from classic cocktails. It's a perfectly suitable Halloween drink and a cure for a hangover. Even though there are many varieties of this recipe, every one of them tastes delicious. So, let us introduce you to the most flavorful one.
Firstly, rub the juicy lemon onto the glasses' rim for some vitamin C, then roll it in the celery salt until fully coated. Secondly, fill it with ice and pour vodka and Clamato juice. Finally, add two kinds of sauces for the flaming effect - Tabasco and Worcestershire, horseradish, and breezy lime drops. After that, you can spice it up with black pepper, celery salt, and garlic powder. Try it, and the taste will astonish you for sure!
4. Poison Apple Cocktail
The taste of apples is one of the most favorite cocktail flavors, and it mixes well with a diversity of aromas such as caramel, cinnamon, and even rosemary and mango. Their scent is typically associated with fall, but what else is? Yes, you've guessed, it's Halloween. So, let's amaze your party guests by serving this magnificent drink which is beloved by celebrities who adore this celebration.
The recipe consists of vanilla vodka, apple sour of your choice, the sweet, light green-colored Midori, and lemon juice as a refreshment. After mixing, give it a good shake. If you like the taste of Sprite or 7UP, you can optionally combine it with the mix. For the ghostly touch, add the dry ice, but please be careful not to drink it while the dry ice is still in it.
3. The Smoking Skull
If you're about to go for pre-Halloween shopping, buy some spooky glasses for your drinks. This cocktail recipe is straightforward, but the trick is to pour it into a skull-shaped glass. The magic will happen after adding the dry ice chips as the drink will get a scarier look with the "smoke" coming out of it. While it does look tempting, there's one thing you should know - never touch the dry ice with bare hands or swallow it. Please wait until it evaporates or take it out of the glass.
Now that we know all the safety measurements, we can get back to the recipe. Pour the fresh lime juice over a bourbon, and add the grenadine for the bold red color. Again, if you like it, you can add a dash of 7UP in a mix and a touch of dry ice. You'll be amazed by the look of white magic mist that'll come out of your glass, forming the shape of a creepy Ghost."
2. Brain Shots
The extraordinarily creepy and fascinating Brain Shots is the essential drink for a Halloween party. Still, it doesn't require expertise to make it. Believe it or not, the only ingredient for this tiny masterpiece is Bailey's, poured from the syringe directly into the glass full of vodka and sour mix.
For the blurry look of the shots, you can squeeze a bit of lemon. Nevertheless, if these floating brains are not creepy enough, you can add a splash of grenadine juice just for the bloody effect.
1. Witches' Brew Cocktail
When Halloween is near, we get chills down our spine while planning decorations, masks, and the big party. If you're here, the most exciting time of the year has finally come. So, let's learn how to make the fabulous Witches' Brew. Prepare your shakers and start pouring the ingredients one by one.
First, add the Islay scotch, Fino sherry, breezy lemon juice, and the simple syrup, mix it with ice, shaking it until it's chilled. The second step is pouring this mix into the glass and topping it with the beet juice, as you'll get the horror look. Moreover, every cocktail appears temptatious when it's smoking.
