12 Spooky Halloween Cocktails You'll Want to Make

Am I the only one who feels like time is passing at a breakneck pace?  It’s sort of unbelievable that October has arrived and I’m sure before we know it Halloween will be upon us.

Every year I promise myself I’ll be ready earlier.  When my kids were smaller I’d really go to town on decorating the house, indoors and out.  I will sheepishly admit these days I stumble on the feeling that as fun as it is to put it all up, that I have to take it all down which seems a chore.  As soon as I blow past that and start planning fun treats and costumes, the spirit of the holiday will set in.

Best Halloween Treat Wreath DIY - BoulderLocavore

Halloween really is unlike any other holidays for the whimsy of it all.  All ages are excited about dressing up (as witnessed by full families that come to our house for Trick-or-Treating).  Every year I make a Halloween Trick-or-Treat wreath that I use for decoration until Halloween night.  The wreath is made up of Tootsie Pops covered with Halloween fabric and when the kids realize it’s not just decoration but also their treat, they are so excited!  I think because it’s unexpected.  We have kids that we don’t even know that mention annually they are so glad we made the wreath again.  Love that.  Ok already I’m more in the Halloween spirit just sharing this.

It doesn’t take much to make the evening fun for adults as well as kids.  I shared some tips for throwing a Halloween party last year.  You can find some easy, fun non-alcoholic drink ideas in my Halloween recipe section but today I’ve rounded up 12 Spooky Halloween Cocktails You’ll Want to Make.

    That’s a lot of cocktails! I really like all the ideas which makes it more difficult to choose which one is best for serving! Some look gross like that drink if you dare shooters which makes it awesome for guests this Halloween!
