Who says Halloween is just for kids? If you're throwing a party for adults after the little ones have finished all their trick-or-treating, then you'll definitely want to check out some of these spooktacular beverages. Most of them are pretty simple to make, so there's really no excuse for not kicking your fright night up a notch with some alcoholic boos.
Candy Corn Infused Vodka
Is this a drink you'd really describe as "adult"? No, probably not, but it sure is fun. The neon-orange infusion makes for the perfect Halloween shot. It does take a few hours to let the candy corn dissolve, so make sure to plan ahead. Just mix the candy and vodka together in a container, let sit for at least three hours, strain, and then serve cold.
Caramel Apple Sangria
What doesn't sound great about a drink that's both delicious and the color of freshly fallen leaves? Plus, it's so easy to make. All you'll need is a bottle of white wine, some caramel flavored vodka, apple cider, and a couple of chopped apples. Mix all together and serve over ice for a drink that's both festive and autumnal. Visit The Wholesome Dish for the recipe.
Witch's Brew Cocktail
Just wait until you see how vibrantly green this concoction is. Made with lime gelatin, pineapple juice, ginger ale, and vodka, the cocktail is equally delicious and bizarre looking. If you really want to up your Halloween game, serve it chilled in creepy goblets like Jenna does over at Recipe Diaries.
Margaritas might not exactly sound like the perfect drink on a cool autumn night, but these margaritas aren't your typical Tex-Mex beverages. Made with bright orange liquid and a salty black rim, they practically scream Halloween. All you'll need is some Tequila, syrup, orange food coloring, triple sec, and limes. Holidappy has the recipe, plus several others you can check out.
Black Magic Shimmering Cocktail
It's. So. Pretty. You won't even want to down this drink until you've snapped at least half a dozen photos of it. Elle at Elle Talk can show you how to whip up the glittery cocktail in no time. A mix between a lime daiquiri and a lime martini, the drink looks like a mini galaxy swirling inside your glass. Added bonus? You only need five ingredients: black vodka, lime juice, simple syrup, ice, and edible pearl dush (which you can find in a craft store's baking aisle).
Spiked Pumpkin Spice Latte
Can't get enough of Starbucks' PSL? Well, you're in luck because Dorothy at Crazy for Crust can teach you how to make one at home, and she adds a special kick. The secret ingredients? Vanilla vodka and Fireball! Trust me, there's nothing basic about this addition to any Halloween party. It's especially perfect for nights when your bones need a little extra warmth.
