We may have outgrown the door-to-door thrill of Halloween, but there’s no reason we can’t enjoy some spine-chilling fun ourselves in the form of a delicious vodka cocktail. These four easy drinks are guaranteed to impress your guests and quench your thirst. Pick your poison:
- Black Widow: Vodka has never looked so sinister. Channel your dark side with black vodka, like Blavod, mixed with cranberry juice and lemonade, for a simple, fruity cocktail. See recipe here.
- Witches’ Brew: Your guests won’t expect a hand floating in the punch bowl, will they? Whip up a raspberry-flavored Jello mixture and freeze it in a disposable glove. Slip the frozen hand in your vodka punch for a nice surprise. See vodka punch recipe.
- Ghost Goblet: Don’t be fooled – this white, vodka cocktail has an evil side. Combine white cranberry juice, vodka, and cointreau in a martini glass. Rim the glass with white sugar and garnish with cherries for a splash of (blood) red. See recipe.
- Slime-ade: This bioluminescent green cocktail is sure to look spooky in the night. Vodka mixed with Midori melon liqueur, sweet and sour mix, and sour apple schnapps will make your mouth pucker. As a bonus, float some gummy worms on top for an extra dash of creepy-crawly. See recipe.
Bonus: To make these drinks even spookier, add some skull and crossbones ice cubes. Happy Halloween!
