Simple Spooky Halloween Cocktails

img_3237

Me and my husband love making cocktails and we love Halloween so we thought we’d have a go at making our own Halloweeny drinks. All of these contain alcohol, so if you’re looking for non-alcoholic cocktails, you’ve come to the wrong place ūüėČ

Ghostly RumChata

How cute are these little guys? Almost too cute to drink…almost. If you haven’t heard of RumChata before then you’re missing out. If you like quite sweet and creamy drinks, think¬†Baileys, Malibu etc, then you’ll love this! It’s a mix of caribean rum, cream, vanilla and cinnamon, yum!

What you’ll need
  • Rum Chata
  • Squirty cream
  • Edible eyes (we used mini marshmallows with black writing icing instead)
Directions

This is definitely the simplest of the four drinks. All you need to do is pour your RumChata in to your glasses, squirt your cream on the top and pop the eyes on. Simple as that!

Bloody Bucks Fizz

Another easy peasy one with just two ingredients, and who doesn’t love prosecco?!

What you’ll need
  • Blood orange juice
  • Prosecco
Directions

Add one part blood orange juice to your glass and then top up with three parts prosecco. Et Voila!

Dark and Stormy

This is my husbands addition as he’s a big rum fan. Usually there’s nothing particularly spooky about this drink other than maybe it’s name, but we’ve put a little twist on it by slowly adding the rum after the ginger beer to create the separation which I think makes it look really interesting and a little spooky.

What you’ll need
  • Ginger beer
  • Dark rum
  • Ice
  • Lime
Directions

Add three parts ginger beer to a glass and add your ice. Slowly pour in one part dark rum and finish with a slice of lime. Obviously make sure you mix it up a little¬†bit before drinking it or you’ll end up with a mouthful of dark rum and nothing else!

Bloody G&T

I love a G&T! There’s a spooky twist on this one with the ‘blood’ at the bottom of the glasses! The skull glasses were just ¬£1 each from Wilko, how cool are they?!

What you’ll need
  • Indian tonic water
  • Gin
  • Raspberry syrup
  • Red food colouring (optional)
Directions

Make up your G&T as usual. For the ‘blood’ I used raspberry syrup, you can use it on its own or add a little red food colouring to make it look even¬†more red. Drop the syrup into the G&T carefully, it’ll sink to the bottom and give you the creepy blood effect, it also gives your G&T a lovely fruity kick!

 

Pin it for later…
