Halloween Cocktails

Hi everyone,

As we’re into October and Halloween is fast approaching, I thought it would be a good time to do my first Halloween themed post. Halloween cocktails. I love a fun cocktail and these are just that. With that being said, let’s get into it.

The first cocktail we have is Witches Brew, this is super easy to make and will impress any guest. This recipe makes four drinks.

What You Need:

  • 1/2 cup of vodka
  • 1 cup of lemon lime soda, Sprite is my preference
  • 1/4 cup of raspberry liqueur
  • 1 fresh lime
  • 3 drops of purple food coloring
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • Crushed ice

What You Do:

  • So the first thing you’re going to do is rim the glasses. And for this you juice the lime onto a plate and mix the 3 drops of food coloring into the juice. Then on a second plate put your sugar. Dip your glasses into the lime juice, then into the sugar, making sure the rim is well coated and set aside.
  • Next take your cocktail, add ice and your vodka, lemon lime soda, and raspberry liqueur. Shake well.
  • Add crushed ice to your glasses then pour in your drink.
  • Serve and enjoy!

The next cocktail we have is Walker Blood Sangria, name inspired by The Walking Dead. I like sangria for parties, I make it when I have them and I’ve watched The Walking Dead since the beginning so for me this was a no brainer.

What You Need:

  • 1 bottle of your favorite wine
  • 2 cups of pomegranate juice
  • 1/4 cup of orange juice or Cointreau
  • 2 cups of sparkling water
  • 2 cups of ice
  • Pomegranate seeds
  • Orange slices

What You Do:

  • The first step is to get your pitcher, then pour in the wine, pomegranate juice and orange juice/Cointreau and mix well.
  • Put that in the fridge overnight.
  • When you remove the mixture from the fridge add the sparkling water, stir, add the ice and mix well.
  • Add pomegranate seeds and orange slices and give a stir.
  • Serve and enjoy!

The second to last cocktail we have is simply called Vampire’s Dream. I’ve had this before and while I’m personally not a huge rum drinker, I found this to be pretty balanced. And this recipe makes one drink.

What You Need:

  • 1 to 2 ounces of Spiced Rum
  • 3 ounces of pomegranate juice
  • 3 ounces of pineapple juice
  • A splash of grenadine

What You Do:

  • Take your cocktail shaker and add in the rum, pomegranate juice, pineapple juice and grenadine. Shake well.
  • Pour into a glass filled with crushed ice.
  • Serve and enjoy!

And the last cocktail we have is the Half Blood Prince. I’m a Harry Potter fan and when I saw this I knew I wanted to try it. This will probably end up being the drink I make on Halloween.

What You Need:

  • 1/4 cup of pomegranate juice
  • 1 1/2 ounces of bourbon
  • 1/2 ounce of raspberry liqueur
  • The juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 teaspoon of maple syrup (you can use more or less, it’s up to you)
  • Pomegranate seeds to garnish

What You Do:

  • Take your cocktail shaker and add the pomegranate juice, bourbon, raspberry liqueur, lemon juice and maple syrup. Add in some ice and shake well.
  • Strain into your glass adding one ice cube and pomegranate seeds to garnish.
  • Serve and enjoy!

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys make any of these cocktails let me know how it turns out. And if you have any Halloween cocktail recommendations, I’d love to know what they are.

Until next time, have fun making drinks and cheers witches :).
