An adult Halloween party needs one thing, and one thing only… killer cocktails! I have been browsing for Halloween cocktail recipes this morning and I was amazed at how many creatively creepy Halloween cocktail concoctions there are out there! From something as simple as spiced cider to things as complex as bleeding heart martinis – there’s no excuse for serving up boring old beer at your next adult Halloween party!
The eye-catching cocktail on the left of my blog today is a recipe from About.com which is called the Halloween Hpnotist. It’s got an eerily uncomfortable blue glow to it yet still says class while sitting in your tiny martini glass…the real show stopper on this one? The creator added a blue glow stick to make the cocktail glow. You could really do this with any colorful cocktail – and then turn the lights down as people drink up!
Itching for the recipe so that you can make this ghastly cocktail at your next Halloween party? Look no further…
The Halloween Hpnotist
2 oz. Hpnotiq
1 oz. Top shelf vodka
1 splash of lemon juice
glow stick for garnish
This is an easy one, cocktail lovers! Simply pour your above ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass like the one pictured above. Garnish with your lit glow stick and enjoy!
Need some Halloween cocktail party invitations to coordinate with those cocktails you’re concocting? Your Halloween cocktail party invitation needs to be just as creepy and cool as the cocktails you’ll be serving at your event…and we have the perfect invitations to set the bloody scene! Some of our favorites are shown below from classy martini masquerades to downright frightful mummies drinking a bloody cocktail with an eyeball swizzle from the grave! Props to those of you that make your own Halloween cocktails that look like these, and then have the stomach to actually drink them after!
If you have little ones attending your Halloween spooktacular, or maybe just a few non-drinkers / designated drivers, be sure to have some non-alcoholic spooky drinks on hand too! There’s nothing like a ghostly vanilla shake, an apple cider punch or a candy corn drink to add some fun into an everyday drink!
