3 Festively Frightening Cocktail Recipes

19th Oct 2013 / By Guest Contributor

With Halloween just around the corner everyone is brainstorming creative and unique ideas for costumes. To lighten the load, and add a little kick to the Halloween spirit, we compiled a few spooky drink ideas that will definitely send a chill of excitement down your spine.

Supernatural Shooter

  • .5 oz black vodka
  • .5 oz cranberry juice
  • orange rimming sugar

Makes 1 serving

Instructions: First, rim your shot glass with sugar. Next, fill the bottom half of the shot glass with cranberry juice. The last thing you’ll do is add black vodka. To get the layered effect, pour vodka over the back of a spoon and into your glass, over the cranberry juice. Bottoms up!

Blood-Thirst Vodka

  • Vodka
  • Syringe
  • Grenadine
  • 6 – 8 small mason jars
  • Red cake icing
  • White toy fangs

Makes 6 – 8 servings, depending on mason jar quantity

Instructions: Fill the syringes with grenadine and place them aside. Next, pour 1-2 oz. of vodka in each mason jar, over ice.Use the red cake icing to line the rim of your mason jar adding a blood drip affect. Place the white fangs hanging from the rim. Put the syringe in your drink and push down on the syringe to release the grenadine to your preference as you drink. Note: This drink can also be easily converted to a non-alcoholic drink by switching vodka out with Sprite.

Ghostly Sangria

  • 1 bottle red wine
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • Gummy worms
  • Black sugar
  • 2 cups ginger ale
  • 4 – 6 pears

Makes 10 – 12 servings per bowl

Instructions: Wash your pears, cut off the tops and bottoms. Peel the skin off the pears with a potato peeler. Being extra cautious use a small knife to lightly carve the outline of the eyebrows, eyes, nose, and mouth. After outlining cut deeper and slowly pull out the pieces to add more depth. Place the ghostly face pears aside and begin to mix your sangria in a large bowl. Take (1) 750 ml bottle of red wine, 2 tsp of sugar (optional), 2 cups ginger ale, and 2 cups of orange juice. Now it’s time to prep your bowl, outline the rim of the bowl with black sugar. Pour the sangria mix along with the pears into the bowl. Add gummy worms around the rim and crawling out of the mouths, eyes, and noses of the pears for a scary effect. You’re more than welcome to add in more fruits if you like. Note: If you’d like a non-alcoholic sangria simply replace the red wine with any type of juice, we recommend using grape juice.
