The secret ingredient of this first cocktail is what makes the color so enchanted and perfect for Halloween. The Empress Gin from Victoria, British Columbia is infused with butterfly pea blossoms. Other ingredients in the Hocus Pocus Witch's Brew include Blue Curacao, lemon juice, and soda water. Photo and recipe by Best Day of the Week.
Taking a classic recipe and putting a seasonal spin on it is a simple but effective way to get in the fall spirit. These Pumpkin Spice Moscow Mules are sweet and smell like the farm bakery. Ingredients include pumpkin puree, vanilla or regular vodka, ginger beer, pumpkin pie spice, and lime. Photo and recipe by Freutcake.
If fruity drinks are your fav, this Peach Boo-lini recipe from Seagram's Escapes is a great choice. The recipe includes the Seagrams Escapes Peach Bellini, vanilla vodka, orange juice, and an optional dash of edible glitter. Photo and recipe by Seagram's Escapes.
The Empress Gin is back because it resembles potion a little too perfectly to not include twice. This recipe comes from Empress 1908 themselves and it has a very herbal and refreshing taste. The recipe also calls for thyme syrup, grapefruit juice, and soda water. Photo by Empress 1908.
The Pumpkin Beer Cocktail is the perfect drink to accompany pumpkin carving or a scary movie night. Along with your choice of a pumpkin beer, the recipe includes rye or whiskey, homemade cinnamon simple syrup, apple cider, and a rim of cinnamon sugar. Photo and recipe by Best Day of the Week.
Margarita lovers get ready for this one, the Devil's Margarita is the perfect balance of frightful and fantasy in a cup, or chalice for that matter. The short and sweet recipe includes tequila, red wine, lime juice, and simple syrup. Photo and recipe by Quirk-E Hour.
Another simple yet perfect fall recipe is the Sparkling Apple Ginger Mocktail. All you are going to need for this one is apple cider, ginger ale (or ginger beer), fresh ginger, and cinnamon sticks–perfect for kids or daytime fun. Photo and recipe by Marissa Moore.
