While I typically prefer to keep my cocktails really simple and use basic ingredients, Halloween is when I like to get a little more creative.
Whether I’m making drinks from ghoul-friends (see what I did there?) or cocktailing before trick or treating, Halloween is the perfect time to get extra creepy and make something a little more flashy.
How to make Halloween Drinks
Making themed cocktails for Halloween will require a bit more pre-planning than usual. From the oddly colored liqueurs to the extra sticky, blood-like simple syrups, these are’t recipes that you can just throw together.
Make sure to not only read the list of ingredients but also the full instructions to ensure that you have everything you need to make a creepy cocktail fit for any scary night creature.
How to make smoky Halloween drinks
One way to instantly make a drink a little more dubious is to add dry ice. Dry ice isn’t found at every store so you may have to do a little research to find a location near you.
A small piece of dry ice in a punch bowl or a cup gives the drink a smoky effect that is super eery and fun.
Dry ice doesn’t change the flavor of the drink at all but is bit dangerous to handle. If you take the proper precautions, everything will be fine.
DO NOT TOUCH IT WITH YOUR HANDS! And make sure to take extra care when chipping off pieces from the larger block.
Kids will think this is the best thing ever so make sure you don’t leave it unattended as they can burn themselves.
