In preparation for Halloween weekend, we’re rounding up a list of our favorite, frightening cocktails for all of your costume party needs. Whether you’re crazy for candy corn, partial to pumpkin or addicted to apple, we’ve got a cocktail for every festive fall flavor. So grab your mask, reach for a glass and get to cocktail-creating with one of our seven favorite Halloween cocktails:
Brandy, cider, Champagne. Need we say more? This spritzy sparkler is light, crisp and refreshing– a perfect welcome drink for any Halloween party. It’s like bobbing for apples without actually having to bob. Plus Champagne. Everyone wins.
Halloween and summer, our two favorite times of year, combined into one delicious cocktail. Who says coconut is reserved for only July and August? Serve up some Pina Ghouladas to trick your guests right back into those hot, summer days.

Because no party, costume or not, is complete without a punch bowl, right? We love this recipe, not just for its wine, spice and fresh fruit ingredients, but also — bourbon. Bonus points if you actually serve this concoction in a hollowed out pumpkin.
Either Snow White actually ate a piece of bad fruit, or she drank one too many of these apple heavy delicious cocktails. We’re banking on the latter. Tequila, cider and fresh juice mix together to form this deadly addictive cocktail.
Let’s be real. There’s always an excuse for a margarita, and Halloween is no exception. We love this classic margarita recipe with a twist. The maraschino syrup plus cherries lend a sweet, fall-like note to this summer classic. We’ll drink to that.
Relive those long lost college days with these festive, fruity Jello shots. Be aware of how many you take, though. These things go down way too easy; start losing count, and your morning after will be the scariest thing about your Halloween party.
Some opposites just make sense together, like salty and sweet, for example. Throw in some alcohol on top of that and you’ve got yourself the perfect cocktail. There’s only one thing we love more than a martini, and that’s salted caramel. This is seasonal perfection in a glass.
