3 Spooky Halloween Cocktail Recipes
1. Witch’s Cauldron
This concoction resembles something a witch would be chanting over as it brews. However, it’s just a spiked green juice with a fresh rosemary sprig (ahem: witch’s broom) garnish. Detox while you sip.
- 1 large cucumber
- 1 large stalk of celery
- 1 lemon, peeled
- 1 green apple
- Handful fresh kale
- Handful fresh parsley
- 1-inch nob of ginger, peeled
- 4 ounces vodka
- 2 rosemary sprigs, leaves removed until there is but 1-inch remaining at the end, resembling a broom
Juice the cucumber, celery, lemon, apple, kale, parsley, and ginger. Transfer the juice to a shaker filled with ice. Add in the vodka. Shake vigorously.
Strain the mixture into two glasses and garnish each with a rosemary “broom stick.” You can even go as far as lighting the remaining rosemary leaves on fire (with caution) so that they release smoke while being served.
2. Ghostly White Russian
This cocktail tastes like sin, looks like a ghost, and is neither of those two things. This white Russian recipes offers a kick in more ways than one – it’s infused with vodka and Kahlua as well as coffee. It is also vegan and sweetened with stevia instead of sugar. No need to adorn this recipe with much – it’s a ghost, after all.
- 1 ½ cups coconut milk, poured into an ice cube tray and frozen
- 1.5 ounces vodka
- 1.5 ounces Kahlua
- ¼ cup coffee, chilled
- One packet of stevia
Blend all of the ingredients into a blender and serve in short serving glasses.
3. Black Death Cocktail
This cocktail’s color speaks for itself. It’s dark, creepy, and mysterious.
- 1 ½ ounces tequila
- ¼ cup freshly-squeezed lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons agave nectar
- 2 dashes Angostura bitters
- 1 capsule activated charcoal
Pour all the ingredients into a shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a coup glass.
