Adult Halloween Concoctions

Halloween isn't just a favorite holiday for kiddies. Adults should be able to get a little spooky and enjoy Halloween, too (especially with it falling on a Friday this year)! Whether you’re going out partying, hosting a little soiree of your own, or just enjoying an evening of tricks and treats at home, here are a couple ghoulishly fun Halloween cocktails to help you keep in the “spirit” of things. ;-)

Start with a Ghostbuster. It is super simple, sweet and fruity, but it looks disgusting: what more could you want in a Halloween cocktail?! You'll need:

~ 1 ounce of peach schnapps

~ 1 ounce of melon liqueur

~ 3-5 drops of Irish cream

Shake the peach schnapps and melon liqueur in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain into chilled cocktail/martini glass. Add the drops of Irish cream for effect.

What fun is Halloween without candy corn? Here’s a Candy Corn Martini that'll provide a yummy adult alternative. You'll need the following:

~ a chilled martini glass

~ 1 ½ ounces of coffee-flavored liqueur

~ 1 ½ ounces of white chocolate liqueur

~ 1 ounce of orange colored and flavored vodka (such as UV)

~ ½ ounce of triple sec

In your martini glass, pour your liqueurs in order over the backside of a spoon.

Most of the “brains” drinks I find are questionable concoctions that need to be shot quickly before they curdle…no thanks. Here’s a fun one, Zombie Brains, that is tasty to drink and look at without, you know, all of the curdling.

~ 2 ounces of UV Salty Watermelon vodka

~ 1 ounce of triple sec

~ 1 tablespoon of sugar

~ 1 splash of lime juice

~ 4 large ice cubes

Combine your of your ingredients but the 4 ice cubes in a blender full of ice. Pour over the extra ice cubes in a glass and enjoy.

One last phantasmic concoction to try this Halloween is the lovely Vampire’s Kiss.

~ 1 ½ ounces of Midori

~ 1 ounce of blood orange vodka

~ 2 ounces of pineapple juice

~ ½ ounce of cream

~ grenadine

Combine all ingredients except the grenadine in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a cocktail glass full of ice. Drizzle grenadine around the glass for a bloody effect.
