Whether you’re planning to throw a Halloween party or not, there are some great Halloween drinks to make part of your spooky night.
Unlike other holidays which have traditional drinks attached to them (i.e., eggnog for Christmas), Halloween is more associated with spooky punches and so on.
Spookifying ordinary cocktails is pretty simple. First, consider the glassware you serve them in.
You can also serve regular drinks that feature lots of tonic water as an ingredient, and then use a black light. Tonic water reacts and glows in blacklight (get your blacklight supplies here), so the drinks will look fluorescent.
You can even make your own tonic instead of using store-bought with this tonic making kit.
Or try serving drinks from a drink dispenser that looks like a drip bag from the hospital.
Color some sugar black or orange with food coloring and use that to rim your guests’ glasses.
Layer any kind of black vodka on top of any kind of fruit juice (cranberry or tomato for the bloody look, orange juice for Halloween colors), and you’ve got weird, spooky-looking drinks. Check out my cocktail layering tutorial!
