Halloween is finally here! Is it “your” holiday?

It usually isn’t mine. Honestly, I may never be the kind of person who decorates their home with faux spiderwebs!

But with each passing year, I find I enjoy making Halloween cocktails more and more.

From classic ones like pumpkin spice lattes and homemade apple cider to the spooky and silly ones, the cocktails of the season definitely do not disappoint.

They’re a chance to have a lot of fun if you like mixing drinks!

When to enjoy Halloween cocktails

I’ve accumulated a number of cocktail recipes for a number of occasions through the season:

  • serve them at Halloween parties,
  • enjoy while decorating for Halloween,
  • sip (slowly) in a to-go cup while trick-or-treating in the neighborhood,
  • imbibe between visits from for trick-or-treaters,
  • or drink while watching a spooky movie marathon.

Just, please wait to imbibe until AFTER you carve the pumpkins, okay?
