Halloween Roundup - 10 Cocktails to Make This Weekend

I’m lucky enough to work at a company at which, on Fridays and holidays, I get to experiment on my coworkers (with cocktails, that is). This Friday we’re having a Halloween potluck and pumpkin decorating Crafternoon, so the hunt is on for the perfect Halloween drink. I’m rounding up a few spook-tails that I’m using for inspiration. I’ll be posting my concoction this weekend!

La Llorona

Pisco, citrus, dry ice, and a spooky backstory. Everything you need for a buzz that will creep up on you. From Muy Bueno via TasteSpotting

The Raven

Cola and Kahlua sounds as intriguing as a Poe story. From DIY Network

Smoked Pumpkin Cocktail

A perfect mix of Orange Vodka, Mezcal, and Pumpkin Butter. From The Rickey via Cosmopolitan

The Poisoned Apple

Pick your poison… which in this case is tequila. From Julep

Hard Cider Pumpkin Float

I will make an exception to my personal no floats rule for this, because pumpkin ice cream is life. From Dine&Dish

Blackberry Sage Margarita

Not only does this cocktail sound delicious, but as a bonus, smoking sage in your house removes evil spirits. From Wicked Spatula

The Jack O' Lanturnt

A mix of bourbon, apple cider, and chai spice syrup that will warm you in the most chilling of circumstances. From SpiritedLA

Pumpkin Spice Piña Colada

For those of you who love Piña Coladas (which is me). If I make this I'm going to rename it "Ghoulada" From Arsenic Lace

Spiced Rum and Cider

Spiced Rum, Cider, and Ginger Ale. Fall in a glass from Gin and Cupcakes

Corpse Reviver #2

Going to pour one out for my homies that met an untimely end on the Walking Dead last Sunday. From Cup of Zest
