With Halloween right around the corner, it’s never a bad idea to have some spooky cocktail and mocktail recipes on hand for a night of hosting! So, to help make your Halloween celebration even more festive, here’s our list of BOOzy cocktail recipes for you to brew up for a perfect All Hallows Eve party!

 

1. Bloody Paloma

While a typical paloma consists of tequila mixed with grapefruit soda, this spooky drink calls for blood orange juice instead, giving it that deeper, blood-red appearance!

 

(Single serve ingredients)

2-3 oz blood orange juice (store bought or freshly squeezed!)

1 oz lime juice

2.5 oz tequila of your choice (or none at all if you’re enjoying a mocktail!)

0.75 oz simple syrup or agave

Shake!

Top off with sparkling water or blood orange soda!

 
@drinksbyevie#NYC hit over 50° today so naturally we’re drinking a #bloodorange#paloma. Only a few days left with this #view, what should I make?! #tequila ♬ Gravity (feat. Tyler, The Creator) - Brent Faiyaz & DJ Dahi

 

2. Pumpkin Spice Painkiller

While this drink isn’t necessarily spooky, it is perfect for any Fall occasion! Crafted by TikTok user @drinksbyevie, this twist on a painkiller uses pumpkin syrup and cinnamon to create a delicious, festive Fall drink!

 

(Single serve ingredients)

0.5 oz cream of coconut

0.75 oz pumpkin spice syrup

0.25 oz lime juice

1 oz orange juice

1.5 oz pineapple juice

2 oz dark rum of your choice (optional!)

Shake

Garnish with some pumpkin spice!

 

3. Witch’s Brew

This witch’s brew recipe is a little different from the ones you’ll find with a quick internet search, and that’s because we’re pretty sure it’s an original! Instead, this recipe follows that of a classic Moscow mule but with a touch of chlorophyll for some natural food coloring. This addition creates a deep, dark green color like a witch’s potion, and is served up in the perfect little cauldron (aka a brass mule mug)!

 

(Single serve ingredients)

2 oz vodka of your choice (or without!)

1 oz lime juice

Ginger beer (as much as preferred)

0.5 oz chlorophyll for color!

Stir!

 

4. The Gomez and Morticia Addams

Adding their own twist on a classic Kir Royale, TikTok user @thegandmkitchen crafted this perfectly spooky (and gorgeous) cocktail inspired by the ultimate creepy couple, Gomez and Morticia Addams!

 

(Single serve ingredients)

0.5 oz black currant liqueur or black currant syrup

Top with sparkling rosé or sparkling apple cider

Garnish with dehydrated roses

 

5. Pracitcal Magic Midnight Margaritas

This list would be incomplete without the iconic drink from the 1998 film Practical Magic! Midnight margaritas are sure to be an absolute hit at your party!

 

(Single serve ingredients)

2 oz tequila or mezcal (optional!)

2 oz lime juice

1.5 oz lavender syrup

0.5 oz agave

Shake!

Garnish with lavender!

 

We hope these fun and festive recipes will help make your Halloween celebration even more Spooktacular! Stay safe, drink responsibly, and Happy Halloween!
