Creepy Cocktails

Black Vodka cocktails for Halloween

f you’re planning a Halloween fete for grown-up ghouls, creepy cocktails like these lend a gore-met vibe to your beverage options.

A classic Bloody Mary is a fitting choice for Halloween, but for something out of the ordinary consider black vodka. It can be difficult to find, but the effect is worth the search, as shown in these three cocktail options from Martha Stewart.

For a hot beverage, combine gin, mulled wine and port to make a Witch’s Brew – no cauldron required.

Bloody Brain shooters

If these bloody brain shooters make have your guests thinking twice about emptying their glasses, you can put their stomach at ease – it’s just Irish cream curdled with lime juice. The Purple People Eater may sound scary but it is simply vodka, grape juice, gummy worms and jello.
