Do you love the Spooky season? We have to admit, Halloween is definitely not our favorite holiday. But We do love a good Halloween party. That’s why we want to share some of our fave fall cocktails with you in preparation for the best season of all! If you’re planning a Halloween party, a fall get together, a bonfire, or even a pumpkin carving night, you’ll definitely want to add these spooky cocktails to your at home bar menu.
The Candy Corn Martini
Satisfy your friends with a Halloween sweet tooth with this delicious Halloween themed martini!
Ingredients (makes 2):
4 OZ of Whipped Cream Flavored Vodka
1 Cup of Pineapple Juice
2 tbsp of Grenadine
Whipped cream for topping
Fill your martini shaker ¼ of the way up with crushed or cubed ice, pour in the vodka and pineapple juice, shake for 15 seconds, strain into a martini glass until ¾ of the way full, measure out 1 tbsp of grenadine per martini, and top each with whipped cream!
The Bloody Mary
Have a friend that doesn’t like trying new things? Then a Bloody Mary is the perfect classic spooky cocktail for Fall!
Ingredients (makes 4):
4 Cups Tomato Juice
1 Cup Vodka
1 Medium cucumber, seeded and peeled
⅓ Cup distilled Vinegar
1 tsp Celery Seed (not salt!)
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
½ tsp Hot Sauce
1 tsp freshly ground Black Pepper
2 Medium Cloves of Garlic pressed or minced
¼ tsp Salt
Lemon or Lime Wedges
Lots of Ice, for serving
Garnishes: Celery stalks, skinny carrots, mini bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, dill pickles, shrimp, olives, and feel free to throw some spooky garnishes in as well (fake eyeballs, plastic spiders, etc)
In a blender, combine the tomato juice, vodka, cucumber, vinegar, celery seed, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce. Blend on high until smooth. Taste your spooky concoction and add more hot sauce for more heat (if desired). Then you’ll add the black pepper and garlic. Secure the lid back onto your blender and blend for a few more seconds. Sprinkle in your salt for tasting & set aside. If you’d like to rim your glasses with kosher salt, now is the time to do it! Go ahead and rim your glasses with a lemon or lime wedge and dip your glasses into your kosher salt. Fill all glasses with ice, pour your bloody mary mix, and garnish to your heart’s desire!
The Witches Brew
If you and your coven are looking for something a bit more sinister to sip on, this elegant purple drink will have you ready to dance with your girlies in the moonlight in no time.
Ingredients (makes 4 shooters):
1 Fresh Lime
3 Drops Purple Food Coloring
1 tbsp of Sugar
½ Cup of Vodka
⅓ Cup of Lime juice
¼ Cup of Raspberry Liqueur
Start by prepping your shot glasses! Cut your lime in half and squeeze the juice into a saucer, then add the purple food coloring into your lime juice and mix! Place sugar into a second saucer and dip the shot glasses into the lime juice, and then into the sugar. Set them aside, pour your other ingredients into a cocktail shaker, add ice, shake well, and strain into your prepared shot glasses! ENJOY!

Drizzle the sides of each glass with some additional chocolate sauce, pour your mixture in, and garnish with the remaining chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and spooky sprinkles!
