22 of the best Halloween Cocktails of 2017

Oct 26, 2017 | Post By Brodey Sheppard

Halloween is coming, and you are going to want to impress your friends with amazing cocktails, shots and punch bowls to get everyone in the party spirit. We have it all here for you in this run down of our best Halloween themed recipes. From caramel apple martinis to vodka jelly swamp goo, you’ll love them all!

Halloween is thought to have originated from the Gaelic festival of Samhain – a festival with pagan roots that celebrated the end of the harvest and the beginning of the winter season. It is then assumed that the festival was Christianized by the early Church as the first day of Allhallowtide – the three-day celebration to remember the dead. Many of the observances of the early Christians have translated into the festivities that we take part in ourselves at the modern Halloween time such as trick or treating and apple bobbing.

No matter how you are celebrating this year be sure to try some of our delicious and inventive cocktails listed below!

1. Jack-O-Lantern

This cocktail is a great party piece and a delicious drink to share with your friends. The orange and ginger flavours are perfect for the Autumn and the Cognac will warm you from the insides out. Make sure you get the orange wheel garnish floating just right to make the glowing pumpkin look just perfect.
