It’s Halloween! Get into the ‘spirits’ of things.

Halloween cocktail

Halloween is coming up and in case you’d like to sink your teeth into something more than candy on the spookiest of evenings, we’ve got a few recipes for you. Mix up one for yourself, or, even better, invite your ghoul-friends over for a get-together!

Candy Corn Martini

This recipe can make a single drink or it can be scaled to make a punch (try adding orange sorbet to a punch!)

1 part candy corn-infused vodka*

2 parts pineapple juice

Candy corn for garnish (optional)

Put ice in a shaker and add candy corn vodka and pineapple juice. Shake vigorously, then strain into a martini glass. Add candy corn garnish.

* Candy corn-infused vodka: Put one part candy corn and one part vodka in a container with a tight-fitting lid. Shake, then put in the refrigerator for 4 hours. After 4 hours, pour the mixture through a strainer to get the candy pieces out.

Rotten PumpkinOrange and black Halloween cocktail

6 oz. Orange juice

4 oz. Black vodka*

Pour orange juice into a glass and top with vodka.

* Use black food coloring or mix red & green food coloring to color the vodka.

Witches Brew

1 oz. Vodka

1 oz. Triple Sec

1 oz. Blue Curacao

Juice of one lime

Black sugar for coating the glass

Pour equal portions of the alcohol into a shaker over cracked ice. Shake, then strain into a chilled martini glass that has been rimmed with black sugar.

Green Goblin

1 oz. Midori

Rim the glass with blood slime*
