You've got all of your costume together, you sent out the invitations and you're prepping for one of the spookiest nights of the year. Halloween is here! A great way to celebrate this glorious season is with some Halloween-inspired cocktails. We're putting the 'boo' in booze!
Drunk Pumpkin Punch
Half gallon apple cider
Close to a fifth of dark or gold rum
3 regular or one large bottle(s) of ginger beer
One med-sized, hollowed out, pumpkin
Close to party time, fill your hollowed out pumpkin or pumpkin punch bowl with the cider, rum and ginger beer, stir and add a frozen block of ice to keep things cold. Have your guests ladle the punch into punch cups.
2 parts Kraken Rum
4 parts Ginger Beer
lime juice* option but recommended
Add ice and lime juice in a glass, add rum and top with ginger beer.
1 oz. Caramel vodka
1.5 oz. Armaretto
2.5 oz. Fresh apple cider
1/2 oz. Freshly squeezed lemon juice
Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker and vigorously shake for 20 seconds to break up the density of the fruit juice and to completely emulsify with the liquors. Strain into a glass with ice and serve with a dusting of cinnamon and add a twist of lemon.
2 oz. of mixed cranberry and pineapple juices
1 oz. Lemon-lime soda
1 1/2 oz. Coconut rum (like Malibu)
Mix the 7-up and juices in a higball glass with ice. Pour the rum down the inside of the glass right before serving.
Candy Corn Shots (A personal favorite)
1 part Licor 43 liqueur
1 part Orange Curacao liqueur
1 part cream
Carefully layer on top of each other to resemble the Halloween candy in a shot glass. First the Licor 43, then the orange curacao, then finally the cream. Orange, yellow, white!
Cheers! Happy Halloween all you groovy ghoulies!!!
