I LOVE Halloween! Nothing goes harder than a Halloween party where the host has spent an entire monthly paycheck on decorations from the dollar store and a few bowls of candy.

That said, I’m not a big fan of ‘Trick or Treating’, more specifically people ‘Trick or Treating’ at my house. So I’ve put together a list of Halloween cocktails you can sip on all night long to ensure you stay festive and don’t actually turn into the cranky ogre statue your neighbour has in their front yard.

Vampire’s Kiss
Ingredients
• 45ml Grey Goose Vodka
• 30ml Black Raspberry Liquor
• 15ml Cranberry Juice
• 15ml Fresh Lemon Juice
• 15ml Grenadine
• Sugar and additional Grenadine for rim (optional)

Method
Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Add two handfuls of regular ice cubes and shake until cold. Next, prepare your glass with the sugar rim. Place granulated sugar in a single layer on a plate. On another plate add some grenadine. Spin the rim of the glass in the grenadine until it coats entirely. Then dip the glass rim into the plate of sugar to coat. Finally, strain your prepared cocktail into the glass and enjoy.

Bloody Maria
Ingredients
