- by Pleepleus :)
Halloween is just a few days away! Whether you're having a few friends over or a full-blown halloween party, these cocktails will do the trick! So, grab your cauldrons and let's get brewing! These drinks are frighteningly good.
#1 espresso martini
Need a pre-game pick-me-up? Caffeine and alcohol are the perfect combination for a little kick in the butt!
- 1 oz. espresso or cold brew concentrate
- 1 oz. coffee liqueur
- ½ oz. simple syrup
- 1 ½ oz. vodka
Add all of your ingredients to a shaker and shake, shake, shake until the ingredients are cooled and there’s foam. Double strain into your favorite martini glass and drop in some coffee beans!
#2 poison apple cocktails
The evil witch said one bite, and all your dreams will come true. If you wished that there was such a thing as edible glitter, then she was right!
- ⅓ cup apple cider
- ⅓ cup cranberry juice
- 2 oz. fireball
- 1 oz. grenadine
Combine all of your ingredients in a cocktail shaker with some ice, and shake away! Pour into your favorite glass and serve.
#3 black magic margaritas
These margaritas are as scary as swimming in the ocean at night! Pro tip: if these cocktails are too spooky, try hiding them in one of my “coffee” mugs (;
Here’s the ingredients!
- 1 tbsp black sanding sugar
- 1 cup ice
- 2 oz. silver tequila
- 1 oz. triple sec
- ¼ cup lime juice
- red, blue, and green food coloring
Rim your glass with a lime slice and dip it in the black sanding sugar. Add your ingredients to a shaker and shake until everything is chilled and desired black color is achieved. Cheers!
#4 apple cider mimosas
Ahhh I love a good mimosa! This is a spooky spin on a classic brunch drink!
- 2 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
- 1 cup apple cider
- 1 (750 ml) bottle of prosecco or champagne
Combine your sugar and cinnamon on a plate, wet the rims of your champagne flutes, and give them a coat of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Fill your glasses ¼ of the way and then top with either prosecco or champagne!
#5 witch's brew cocktails
“Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble.” This is a potion that’s sure to put a spell on your guests!
Make your potion:
- 1 ½ oz Midori
- 2 ½ oz orange juice
- 2 ½ oz Sprite or any lemon-lime soda
Pour your Midori and orange juice into a shaker with some ice and shake. Optional: coat the rim of your glass with black sanding sugar for an added spooky touch. Pour in your mixture, top with soda, and serve!
#6 halloween punch
If you want to make a batch big enough to share with a party, then this is the drink for you!
- 64 ounces cranberry juice
- 64 ounces apple cider or apple juice
- 1 liter ginger ale
