Too old for trick-or-treating? Partying with friends this Halloween? Well with the 31st being just a few days away, why not celebrate with a drink or two?! I’m not just talking your average Long Island from Brothers or that favorite cold six pack of beer you enjoy, but something to really get you in the “spirit”. Introducing your Top 5 spooky special drinks to get your Halloween turned up.

1.     Mr. Hyde Potion

This drink just might be as dangerous as it looks. If you are a fan of Vodka, this is your pick! The drink combines vodka with ingredients such as blackberries, fresh lemon juice and a touch of lavender syrup to give it that dark purple color. The ghostly cloud you see in the cup is a reaction from dry ice and the contents of the drink. BUT be careful, the drink is only ready to consume after the dry ice is melted!

2.     The Peach Candy Corn Cocktail

Another tasty treat for the vodka lovers out there – this one is extra sweet. Combining the rich tastes of grenadine, pineapple juice, whipped cream vodka, and sparkling peach juice, this drink will have all your party guests in love. Don’t forget to top it with candy corn!

3.     The Black Cauldron

Talk about a drink reflecting the evil soul – the black cauldron is as dark as a bottomless pit. For those tequila lovers out there, here is one to try for the books. This cocktail includes Hornitos Black Barrel Tequila, lemon juice, a couple different syrups and activated charcoal. You’re probably thinking how in the world does that work? Well its possible. Adding the charcoal adds the pitch black color, while adding a savory taste of smoky flavor.
