Starting off on a simple note, the Black Velvet comprises two mouthwatering ingredients: stout beer and bubbling champagne. Crafting this cocktail is as simple as mixing the two together to create a pitch-dark concoction that’s sure to thrill the taste buds of any party guest.
Blood and Sand
A certified classic, Blood and Sand will attract thirsty spirits from far and wide. The best part? It’s a breeze to make. Just mix Scotch whiskey, blood orange juice, sweet vermouth and cherry liqueur with ice, and then top each cocktail with a Luxardo maraschino cherry for a blissfully sweet finishing touch.
Poison Apple Cocktail
This unique cocktail is just as strong as it is tasty. The Poison Apple fuses the unique characteristics of vanilla vodka, apple schnapps, champagne, lemon juice and triple sec or orange liqueur to create a flavorful cocktail that’s worthy of a real-life princess. Garnish the cocktail with green sugar (use food coloring) and dry ice (handle it safely!) to complete the cocktail’s spooky look.
Don’t worry, creatures of the night – Vampire Punch is garlic-free, guaranteed. Simple syrup, Campari, gin and club soda form this one-of-a-kind cocktail’s base, while fresh-squeezed orange juice, pomegranate seeds and a thinly sliced orange work together to deliver a powerful punch of fruity flavor.
Supplying a dark, mysterious appearance, the Raven’s Wing blends effortlessly into any Halloween theme. It’s made with a blend of gin, Fernet-Branca, simple syrup and bitters, though a muddled sprig of cedar adds a unique flavor. Garnish the cocktail with a full cedar sprig for an authentically autumn-inspired look, and guests are sure to come tapping at your chamber door at party time.
