What I love about Halloween is how much fun it is to dress up and create spooky foods and drinks. Some of these ghastly libations look like so much fun! They are perfect not just for a party but also for relaxing at home during the spooky season. I love to relish as much Halloween fun as possible, decorating my house as early as mid-September.
My husband and I love to watch scary movies each weekend in October, and we usually try to make a different Halloween cocktail every time. Sometimes we pair them with an easy-to-make Halloween snack board or make our favorite Halloween dip with Halloween snacks.
If you like relaxing with an adult beverage after a long week as I do, be sure to check out my post for Day of the Dead cocktails. It has lots of Latino-inspired cocktails for celebrating Dia de Los Muertos.
