If you’re looking to celebrate Halloween in style, then you’ll love these three ghoulish cocktails we have put together for you. The Pumpkin Punch and The Dead Man’s Sangria are both ideal to enjoy with friends or at a Halloween party. Meanwhile the Vampires Kiss Martini is great for a meal for two, or while watching a scary movie.
Check out the Halloween cocktails below and let us know which one if your favourite.
A devilishly delicious tropical punch that looks great served in a pumpkin bowl – the perfect Halloween decoration for your party table.
Using a sharp knife carefully carve the top of the pumpkin off to create a large opening for your ‘pumpkin bowl’. Use a large metal spoon to scoop out all the pumpkin seeds and form the inside of the bowl. Be careful to ensure that a thick layer is left on the edges of the pumpkin to keep the wall intact. To make the cocktail you must mix the rum and fruit juices, then add the ginger ale and mix gently in a large jug. Fill the pumpkin with ice and pour in the cocktail. Add the pomegranate seeds and sliced oranges when serving.
Dead Man’s Sangria
A quick and easy to make Halloween cocktail that tastes delicious and will be enjoyed by all. The addition of the dead hand adds to the spooky feel.
The first thing you need to do is to fill your rubber glove with water and place in the freezer. Once frozen, this will be the dead man’s hand found in your Dead Man’s Sangria punch bowl. Slowly pour the red wine, smooth orange juice and lemonade together. Mix in your orange slices, chopped grapes and springs of mint to taste. This punch looks brilliant served in a witch’s cauldron with the dead man’s hand (frozen rubber glove) floating on top and a ladle to serve.
Vampire's Kiss Martini
A spooky looking cocktail that looks incredible and tastes even better. Reasonably simple to make and very instagrammable.
Mix a few drops of red food colouring with corn syrup in a plate or shallow dish. Turn your martini glass upside down to put the ‘blood’ around the rim of the glass. Fill your cocktail shaker with ice. Then add vodka, cherry juice and orange liqueur and shake. Pour the cocktail into your blood rimmed martini glass and garnish with a simple black cherry.
