Creepy Cocktails

October 8, 2009 - Filed under Halloween, Holidays

The secret to great Halloween cocktails is all in the garnish! Just like yesterday’s Vampire inspired martini, these cocktails all have one thing in common – ghoulish garnishes. Check out these great ideas, to bring a little Halloween flavor to your party!


1. Eyeball HighballMartha Stewart uses radishes and olives frozen in ice cube trays to create these creepy looking eyeballs in this vodka drink.

2. Creepy Crawler – A melted chocolate spider web is piped into the inside of this martini glass. For an added touch hang a plastic spider off the edge of the glass.

3. Black Widow – Another spider inspired cocktail. This one uses black licorice strings as spider legs in a vodka, cassis and pomegranate cocktail.

4. Candy Corn Cordials – Combined candy corn and vodka together and let them infuse for several hours. Then add orange liqueur and garnish with more candy corn.

5. Jack-O-Lantern – This Cognac and orange cocktail is garnished to look like a pumpkin. As an added touch, cut pieces of electrical tape in the shape of jack-o-lantern faces and add them to the outside of the glass. Then just peel them off when Halloween is over.

6. Ghoul-Aid – Another creepy eyeball garnish, but this time of the sweeter variety. This one uses lychee stuffed with berry jam and a blueberry.
