Horror Cocktails for Chilly October Nights - 28 Days till Halloween

Its never too early to start celebrating the Halloween season and chasing those chilly October nights away with a few well-named spirits.

Here's a few favorites that get mixed in the luxurious Voodoo Vault Bar nestled in the basement of Chez Midnight. These are perfect for Halloween parties, when unexpected ghouls drop by or you just need to kill those pesky neighbors next door.

Black Cat Martini

2 oz. Blavod Black Vodka
1/2 oz. Chambord

Combine in a shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Maliboo Witch’s Brew

1 1/4 oz. Malibu rum
3/4 oz. white creme de cacao
1/4 oz. grapefruit juice
3/4 oz. orange juice

Combine ingredients in a shaker filled with ice. Shake well and serve into martini glass, garnish with Halloween gummy worms.

The Headless Horseman

2 oz. black vodka
3 dashes bitters
Ginger ale

Pour the vodka and bitters into a Collins glass. Fill the glass with ice, then pour in ginger ale. Garnish with a slice of blood orange.


1 oz. Light Rum
1 oz. Gold Rum
1 oz. Dark Rum
1 tsp. 151 Rum
1/2 oz. Apricot Brandy
2 oz. Orange Juice
1 oz. Pineapple Juice
1 oz. Lime Juice
1 tsp. Sugar
1 cup Crushed Ice

In a blender, combine all ingredients except the 151 with crushed ice. Blend at a high speed until smooth and pour into a Collins glass. Float the 151 rum on top and garnish with the orange slice and maraschino cherry.

If mixology isn't your thing, you can just skip straight to shots of Crystal Skull vodka. Its outrageously expensive and the vodka isn't that good (we're talking sub-Smirnoff here) but it comes in a skull! Spooky!

28 days till Halloween...
