Happy Halloween Beverages for Grown-Ups

Still looking for drinks to serve at your party? Here are some super-fab Halloween beverage recipes created just for the grown ups. These drinks were created by pro mixologists so they are sure to impress. A little witches brew, fake blood and candy corn – sounds like fun to me!

Candy Corn

(By Isaac Elbhar, Master Mixologist and GM of the Cellar Bar, Bryant Park Hotel)

4oz pineapple juice

1 1/2oz sloe gin

1 1/2oz orange vodka

2 egg whites

1 teaspoon sugar

Pour 4oz pineapple juice into champagne flute. Separately combine sloe gin and orange vodka into cocktail shaker. Gently pour over bar spoon. Separately combine egg whites and sugar into small mixing bowl. Whisk and dollop egg whites over cocktail with bar spoon.

Kanon Vodka Witches Brew

Created by Demetrios Saites at The Fat Radish

2 parts kanon

1 part blood orange juice

part aperol

part lime juice

part simple syrup

Combine ingredients and shake vigorously. Strain into a Martini or Antounette champagne glass.

Drinking Chocolate

1 bottle of Alchemia Chocolate vodka

2.5 oz dark chocolate
2 oz. heavy cream

4 oz. whole milk

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 1/2 tbs. granulated sugar

In a double boiler or microwave, melt chocolate. Add cream, milk, sugar, vanilla extract and cinnamon. Heat for ten minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and refrigerate. Serve dark chocolate cold in shot glass with corresponding shots of Alchemia Chocolate. The drinking chocolate will provide maximum detection of Alchemia's own chocolate notes.

Riazul Fake Blood

1 oz. Riazul Silver Tequila

1 oz. Crème de Cassis

1 lime wedge

Ginger Beer

Combine Riazul Silver, crème de cassis and squeezed lime juice with ice, shake and strain into a chilled glass. Fill with ginger beer.

Bonus points: garnish with glow-in-the-dark candy vampire fangs!
