11 Classy Halloween Cocktails You Need for Your Weekend Party
Ah, Halloween cocktails—the adult way to celebrate a ghoulish holiday.
No doubt many of you will be celebrating this strange American tradition with some good food, good classic Halloween tunes and of course, a delicious drink or seven.
But because it’s Halloween, you can’t just serve any old drinks. They must be Halloween-themed, or else it’s just a bunch of old people drinking together and dancing badly. Of course, we’re not kids anymore, so these drinks will be without the fake chopped fingers.
In fact, we have a different set of requirements: your drinks must be red, classy and memorable. So, to help you out, we scoured the internet for the best Halloween cocktails to really make your weekend party shine.
Speaking about pop culture, many people would probably agree with me that one of the most basic and easiest Halloween party cocktails would be The Basic Bloody Mary. There are many variations you can choose from, but the most important is that it must be red—and delicious.
Try this version from Macheesmo—delicious, fast, and bloody.
For those of us with a bit more refined, sophisticated taste, you can try Beetnik Martini – a drink made from beets, vodka and ginger. Bon Apetit has one of the best versions here.
Who’s up for some whiskey beet? Come on, it’s Halloween. Be adventurous. This tantalizing cocktail can be found at Modern Wifestyle.
Beet Gin Martini
For “lighter” version of Halloween cocktail you can try a flavorful and fruity Beet Gin Martini. Natalie Migliarini over at Beautiful Booze makes a delicious one.
Blood Orange Margarita
OK, enough with beets….Let’s get fruity! Try this refreshing and delicious blood orange margarita (it’s got blood in the name!) from the White on Rice Couple blog.
Coconut Strawberry Daiquiri
Or this quick and easy coconut strawberry daiquiri—who can say no to this deliciously fruity, creamy drink (whipped cream optional)? Drink master Brandy O’Neil made this over at Food Fanatic.
Blackberry Champagne Punch
Continuing with our lady theme, what elegant mistress can deny a tall glass of champagne? Make a big bowl with this delicious Blackberry twist and no one will leave unhappy—if they leave at all. Head on over to Sugar and Cloth to find out how to make it.
OK, just so we don’t forget the non-alcohol drinkers, here we have a delicious Berry Red Smoothie just for you.
Or maybe you don’t want to make food for your Halloween party at all and want to “feed” your guests with just some nice healthy smoothies? Try this very basic and very delicious ABC smoothie.
However, if you want something more sophisticated and definitely healthy try this, cleansing and energizing red smoothie (for the party you can put it in nice little shots or, the opposite, big mugs)
The list of fancy and delicious red smoothies (as Halloween cocktails) is nearly endless. This power smoothie, made with pomegranate, grape and strawberry, falls very nicely into the category of a non-alcoholic and definitely healthy drinks.
So many delicious Halloween cocktails
