Having a spooky party this Halloween and don’t know what to serve? Here are a few creepy cocktails that will have your guests screaming with delight!

Blood Shot: Ghoulish and deliciously creamy, this white drink becomes twisted by allowing the strawberry syrup to run along the sides of the glass, leaving a bloody trail.

2 oz Strawberry Stoli

1 oz White Crème de Cocoa

2 scoops vanilla ice cream

Hershey’s Strawberry Syrup

Start with a clean, dry Burgundy-style wine glass. Dip a drink stirrer in the strawberry syrup and make squiggles on the sides of the glass. Allow this to dry.  Blend the rest of the ingredients together and fill the wine glass. Garnish with a candy eyeball.


Secret Potion: The perfect shade of chartreuse, this potion is fruity and lightly sweet but looks super chic in a martini glass.

2 oz pineapple juice

1 ½ oz vanilla vodka

1 oz fresh lime juice

½ oz  Midori

½ oz fresh lemon juice

½ oz simple syrup

Cauldron Crisp: This drink combines the kick of ginger beer and the sweetness of apples for a wicked cocktail.

2 oz ginger beer

2 oz Evan Williams Apple Orchard

1 oz vodka

Fill a shaker with the vodka and apple liquor, and shake until the drink is ice cold. Pour over ice and top with ginger beer.  Garnish with a thin slice of honey crisp apple.

Ms. Yvette: Who done it? Colonel Mustard with the candle stick? Mrs. Peacock with the revolver? Nope, it was Ms. Yvette with the poison.  Crème Yvette is a berry-based floral liqueur that has not been on the market since the 1900s. It is unique and refined, with an eerily violet color.

1.5 oz Hendrick’s Gin

1 oz Crème Yvette

2 oz homemade lemonade

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love testing out new, fun cocktails on my guests each year. Try these out at your Halloween party!
